Noir City Xmas

Join the Czar of Noir Noël, host Eddie Muller, on Wednesday, December 20th at SF's historic Castro Theatre for the eighth annual Noir City Xmas! This year, our friends at the Film Noir Foundation present a double-feature of rare noir-stained 1940s' films to darken your yuletide spirit. At 7:30pm, it’s Manhandled (1949) starring Dan Duryea, Dorothy Lamour, and Sterling Hayden, followed at 9:30pm by Alias Boston Blackie (1942) with Chester Morris. Read more about these films HERE!

The evening will also feature the unveiling of the full program (and poster) for NOIR CITY 16, the world's most popular film noir festival, which is coming to the Castro Theatre January 26 – February 4, 2018. And for your holiday shopping pleasure, NOIR CITY 16 Passports (10-day all-access festival passes for 24 movies, plus opening night reception) will be available for sale at the Xmas show for $120 (cash or credit card) at the FNF's merchandise table on the Castro mezzanine. These make terrific gifts!

Tickets for NOIR CITY Xmas are now available online from Brown Paper Tickets and can also be purchased at the Castro Theatre box office on December 20th, the day of the show. Doors will open at 6:30pm.

The Film Noir Foundation will also provide a chance to give for the holidays, proving it's not such a bitter little world after all.
