NOIR CITY: HOLLYWOOD - THE 20th ANNUAL LOS ANGELES FESTIVAL OF FILM NOIR
Presented by the American Cinematheque and Film Noir Foundation. Sponsored by Warner Archive, the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles, Hoccomocco Pictures/Thin Ice, Sweeney Todd's Barber Shop, Hollywood Heritage and William M. Paparian, Attorney at Law. Opening night beverage sponsor: Califia Farms Nitro Brew and The Cookie Department.

The longest-running film noir festival in Los Angeles returns to the Egyptian Theatre with another incredible lineup of rarities, presented as they were meant to be seen - on the big screen! To celebrate the 20th anniversary of NOIR CITY: HOLLYWOOD, we delve deep into the archives to present a sizzling slate of sinister cinema - virtually all in glorious 35mm, including prints struck expressly for this series. Returning as hosts are Eddie Muller and Alan K. Rode, whose Film Noir Foundation will proudly present 10 consecutive nights of sinuous shadows, dangerous desires and bitter beauties brimming with broken dreams. Join us in NOIR CITY!

The series is highlighted with an appearance by master of noir crime fiction, James Ellroy who will appear with the 1997 neo-noir, L.A. CONFIDENTIAL, which is based on one of Ellroy's novels.

Quite a few titles in the series have to be seen theatrically, as they are not on DVD.

On opening night, there will be a 20th anniversary reception between films featuring Film Noir theme cocktails crafted by 320 Main and friends (Orange County). Black & White Desert bar and other snacks, vintage sodas, Burlesque, mingling with the Vintage Coppers and photos with their vintage cop car - all set to the Sinister Jazz of the Dean Mora Trio.
