Where Film Noir Lives...Too!

Noir City: The 11th Annual San Francisco Film Noir Festival...Jan 25-Feb 3,2013 . The Castro Theatre

The world's most popular film noir festival, NOIR CITY... will return for its eleventh incarnation, January 25 – February 3, 2013. Film noir devotees, as well as the newly noir curious, will spend ten glorious days and nights watching double features the way they were meant to be seen—on the big screen, in lustrous 35mm, in one of America's greatest original movie palaces, San Francisco's historic Castro Theatre.

As always, the Film Noir Foundation will be presenting both celebrated classics of the genre, as well as wonderful rarities—some saved from extinction by the FNF...By the way,

If you're an out-of-towner looking for lodging in the City by the Bay, or you're a local looking to turn a night at the festival into a romantic getaway, our colleagues at the Prescott Hotel have an offer you can't refuse: a special nightly rate of $145 (before taxes) exclusively for NOIR CITY 11 attendees.

This boutique hotel, located only two blocks from Union Square and housed in the city's original Press Club, possesses a vintage feel and is only a short ride by Metro or taxi from the Castro Theatre.

The Prescott will be providing classic film noir entertainment to its guests at their nightly wine hour throughout the festival as well as a 20% discount on meals at the adjacent (and acclaimed) Postrio restaurant.

→ Visit the Prescott website for more information on this great rat...

The opening weekend's special guest star is a performer legendary for one of noir's most extraordinary performances! AND the world premiere of the FNF's latest restoration!

 

On the closing weekend, fans will again have the opportunity to time-travel to the 1940s with the return of the Noir City Nightclub, Saturday night, February 2, 2013. Revelers will enjoy cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and a sensational lineup of live entertainment in a posh vintage venue—the Regency Lodge.And don't fret, festival screenings are timed so you can attend the nightclub without missing any of the films!

 

Full series Passports and Nightclub tickets go on sale December1. Proceeds from the festival help fund the FNF's preservation efforts year round, so it's your chance to both have a smashing time and help preserve a uniquely American art form.

And remember—the full schedule of films (and this year's stunning poster) will be revealed at NOIR CITY XMAS III, slated for the Castro Theatre on December 19, 2012. Individual tickets for NOIR CITY 11 shows go on sale that night!
