The Czar of Noir, Eddie Muller, takes a break from hosting TCM's Noir Alley to guide Seattle audiences on a journey through Film Noir. This year's Noir City festival features 18 classic films, taking you to the darkest and most dangerous places a film lover can go. Many of these films are newly restored, and all will be introduced by our guest Eddie Muller, the incomparable impresario of Noir City.

This year our Opening Night will begin at 6:30 PM with live music from yesteryear by the Casey MacGill Trio and a cider tasting courtesy of Capitol Cider. Dress up in your best retro outfit and test your Noir chops with Shadow Play, the game of Noir trivia, going on throughout the festival.
