Film Noir Closing Weekend Party
Presented in collaboration with the Film Noir Foundation and The Kitchen for Exploring Foods.
Cancel that jewelry story heist and the visit to your bookie. You can postpone the kidnapping and the extortion phone calls too. Get paroled, whatever it takes - because we need you to be part of our racket on Saturday, April 5th. Instead of getting weepy when our travels in Noir City come to the end, we're celebrating the close of our 16th annual series of Film Noir (on the big screen) at the Egyptian Theatre!
Pull the brim of your fedora down low over your face and jump on the Red Car to join a bevy of other shady characters for a celebration - Noir City style. Get in a noir mood with a screening of DETOUR, followed by a party in the Egyptian Theatre Courtyard!
PARTY TIMELINE 7:00 PM: Screening + Introduction of DETOUR (info below). 8:45 PM: Dinner is served, bar open & entertainment begins. Party till midnight! Our Box Office will be open until 9 PM for latecomers.

About tonight's film: DETOUR 1946, Wade Williams, 70 min, USA, Dir: Edgar G. Ulmer
"Whichever way you turn, fate sticks out a foot to trip you" in this low-budget noir classic. Hitchhiking to Hollywood, loser Tom Neal takes several wrong turns and ends up on the expressway to hell - Ann Savage plays the vixenish vagabond who ushers him there. She ends up paying a stiff toll herself.
Tickets for this event will be sold exclusively on Brown Paper Tickets. The link will appear on this page soon! Please note that Noir City Hollywood actually ends on Sunday, April 6, but our party is on Saturday, April 5!
