Austin is the latest city to host Noir City, a film festival devoted to noir film. Held at the Alamo Ritz, February 28th -March 2nd and hosted by Noir Historian and Crime Fiction Writer Eddie Muller, part of the proceeds go to help fund the Film Noir Foundation, a preservation society for noir film.
Eddie Muller says, “I couldn’t be more thrilled that Austin is the latest addition to the NOIR CITY roadshow. I love the Alamo Drafthouse and am excited to be part of its mission: keeping creative and communal rep programming thriving. Since this is the first NOIR CITY at the Drafthouse, it’s a virtual ‘greatest hits’ of all the titles the Film Noir Foundation has restored or recovered from obscurity. It’ll be a fantastic weekend.”
Ten different screenings at just $7.75 a pop. The full line-up of screenings can be found here.
