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 18th. Instead of getting weepy when our travels in Noir City come to the end, we're celebrating the close of our 17th 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. Following the film, exit the theater auditorium and arrive in Noir City!

Brand New 35mm Restoration!
1947, Monogram Pictures, 71 min, USA, Dir: John Reinhardt
Two war buddies (Don Castle and Wally Cassel) fall for twin sisters (both played by Bonita Granville). When one sister turns up dead, the boys are dogged by a suspicious police inspector (Regis Toomey). Working with only three sets and virtually no budget, director Reinhardt and DP Henry Sharp evoke the dreadful, dead-of-night ambiance that was the domain of prolific noir scribe Cornell Woolrich. NOT ON DVD. 35mm restored print courtesy of the UCLA Film & Television Archive. Restoration funding provided by the Film Noir Foundation.
Drink tickets included in your admission can be redeemed for sponsored drinks (wine, gin, vermouth or whiskey), as well as non-alcoholic options. There will also be a full cash bar if something else strikes your fancy!
