Think the 1950s were buttoned-down and conservative? Think again. Dive into NOIR CITY 17 and experience the rush--through a lens, darkly--of a turbulent and transitional time in American history, culture, and cinema. Nothing would ever be the same.

Celebrating its 17th year, NOIR CITY, the largest annual film noir festival in the world, returns once again to the majestic Castro Theatre for a 10-night feast of danger, desire, and despair. Producer and host Eddie Muller, internationally renowned as the "Czar of Noir" and host of TCM's popular weekly Noir Alley series, will once again lead audiences on a fun and fascinating excursion through "Hollywood's only organic artistic movement." This year's program extends last year's chronological pairings of "A" and "B" from the 1940s, offering viewers a slate of films that track noir through the declining studio system and into a fresh cinematic landscape where noir was refashioned, both subtly and radically, for a new generation.

Secure your spot for all the fun with an all-access NOIR CITY 17 PASSPORT for $125. This all-access festival pass grants the bearer:

- Entry to all films during NOIR CITY 17

- Separate passport holders' queue for early admittance to the theater for all shows

- Opening night passholders' reception (Castro mezzanine) beginning at 6 pm on January 25, 2019

- Festival program to be announced Wednesday, December 19, 6 pm, at noircity.com

Proceeds from the NOIR CITY festival help fund the FNF's restoration and preservation efforts year-round. This is your chance to have a smashing time AND preserve a valuable art form. The perfect holiday gift for the film lover in your family!

Note: NOIR CITY Passports are non-transferable. All sales are final. Patrons MUST arrive 20 minutes before show time to be guaranteed a seat!
