Due to the surge in Omicron infections, the NOIR CITY 19 film festival scheduled for January 20-23 at the Grand Lake Theatre has been postponed. New dates will be announced when the threat of exposure is sufficiently diminished. All passports and tickets already purchased online will be honored at the rescheduled festival, whose dates we hope to announce within the next few months. If you cannot attend the new dates, your purchase will be refunded. We regret any inconvenience, but we want to ensure the best possible experience for our loyal fans. We are eager to once again see the movies we love, and the faces of our friends, in a grand movie palace!


NOIR CITY, a Bay Area cultural institution since 2003, returns from COVID-19 hiatus for an incisive and inspiring four-day film festival at a new venue, Oakland's historic Grand Lake Theatre. Produced, programmed and hosted by Eddie Muller, this year's edition, subtitled "They Tried to Warn Us!" showcases 12 movies from mid-twentieth-century Hollywood sure to resonate with contemporary viewers. "Film noir is revered for its incredible sass and style," Muller says, "but many of the films were also warning flares about issues that still plague our culture more than seventy years later." Included in this year's lineup are shockingly prescient films focusing on megalomaniacal politicians, corrupt businessmen, neo-Nazis, racism, anti-Semitism, sexual predators, serial killers, police brutality--even a viral epidemic! This NOIR CITY program could not be more timely or topical. "That said, this isn't like taking your medicine," Muller notes. "It will be a restorative tonic for folks eager to see classic movies again on a big screen and enjoy, with the prescribed protocols, a return to the party atmosphere NOIR CITY is famous for."

Secure your spot for 2022's NOIR CITY with an all-access NOIR CITY 19 PASSPORT for $100. This all-access festival pass grants the bearer:

- Entry to all 12 films during NOIR CITY 19 (a $30 savings over individual ticket purchases)

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

All FNF proceeds from the NOIR CITY festival help fund the Film Noir Foundation's restoration and preservation efforts year-round. This is your chance to have a terrific 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 30 minutes before show time to be guaranteed a seat!
