Noir City: Chicago 3

Friday, August 12th – Thursday, August 18th, 2011

A festival pass can be purchased for $50 in advance and $55 as of August 12. You can see all 16 films for only $50 and save up to $110!

Single Feature tickets are $10 and can be purchased online or at the theatre.

Double feature tickets can be purchased for $13 each! Triple Feature tickets can be purchased for $19.50! You can also see double or triple features each day at a savings of up to $3.50 per film!


The Film Noir Foundation has been at the forefront of the noir revival, cracking studio vaults to resurrect long-neglected examples of America’s most revered genre, funding restorations and preservations, ensuring that these hard-bitten yet sleekly sexy cinematic offerings remain available in their original form for generations to come.

Over the past fifty years, film noir has been recognized as a unique example of an organic cinematic movement, one that produced many of the best and most time-tested Hollywood films of the forties and fifties. These tough-as-nails crime stories, told in a distinctly American vernacular but informed by a darkly romantic European visual sensibility, continue to entrance audiences in each successive generation.
