Nightmare Alley (1947). In 35 mm, 111 min.
Moody jazz clubs, black sedans on rainy streets, easy-money schemes, gun smoke and cheap perfume. Life begins after midnight, but sometimes it stops dead. “The granddaddy of the world’s film noir festivals” (Los Angeles Times) celebrates its thirty-third season with an opening-night fancy-cake party immediately after the first film. Remember that “the hottest film series tickets in town” (Seattle Post-Intelligencer) sell out fast.
Other films in this series include:Sept. 30: Secret Beyond the Door Oct. 14: Walk a Crooked Mile Oct. 21: Between Midnight and Dawn Oct. 28: The House on Telegraph Hill Nov. 4: Hollywood Story Nov. 11: Under the Gun Nov. 18: Drive a Crooked Road
