Noir City Returns To The Music Box

The Music Box Theatre is teaming up with the Film Noir Foundation to bring Chicago the second annual Noir City festival. Noir City promotes and praises the great films that make up the genre film noir with ten films over a week's time. Many of these films are not available on DVD, making this your only chance to see these films in their true 35mm form. Each day of the fest has a specific theme from the femme fatale to the films of Robert Siodmak.

Noir City runs from August 13-19 at the Music Box Theatre (3733 N. Southport). Single screening tickets are $10 and double feature tickets are $12 and are available the day of the screening. If you want to see all ten films, you can purchase an All Noir film pass in advance for $40 or at the door for $50. Full line-up of the films is after the jump.
