Noir City Detroit brings Film Noir to the Redford Theatre

This weekend the Second Annual Noir City Detroit Film Festival will take place at the historic Redford Theatre in Detroit. The event will feature three nights of double features of classic noir films. For those that don't know, Film Noir is defined as, "a style or genre of cinematographic film marked by a mood of pessimism, fatalism, and menace. The term was originally applied (by a group of French critics) to American thriller or detective films made in the period 1944–54 and to the work of directors such as Orson Welles, Fritz Lang, and Billy Wilder."

During this festival each evening will feature two films, one popular flick and one that you may not have heard of before. The lineup is as follows:
Friday, September 22Out of the Past and Nightfall
Saturday, September 23Gun Crazy and Try and Get Me!
Sunday, September 24The Asphalt Jungle and Cry Danger

Noir City Detroit will be hosted by Turner Classic Movies host Eddie Muller, who will also be doing a Q&A at the event. VIP tickets to attend all three nights of films as well as a meet and greet and the Q&A session with Muller are only $25! Single night tickets to see the double features are $10 a night. You can purchase either type of ticket in advance here.

The films are set to start at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday. For VIP ticket holders, the meet and greet with Eddie Muller will begin at 6 p.m. on Saturday.
