I STILL WAKE UP DREAMING: NOIR IS DEAD! / LONG LIVE NOIR! Rated: DARK Runtime: 2WEEKS!
Fri, May 14 - Thur, May 27

ELLIOT LAVINE presents TWO THRILLING WEEKS of impossibly RARE B-Noirs from the notorious shadow factories of Hollywood’s Poverty Row!

It’s Springtime at the Roxie - where TWENTY-EIGHT half-forgotten film noir classics and curios will bloom boldly before your disbelieving eyes at San Francisco’s first and foremost House of Noir—The Roxie Theater! This Spring’s amazing cavalcade features six titles from Columbia’s legendary and darkly sinister 1940s WHISTLER mystery series starring Richard Dix: MARK OF THE WHISTLER (from a story by Cornell Woolrich!), MYSTERIOUS INTRUDER (a major noir rediscovery from director William Castle!!), POWER OF THE WHISTLER (with the incredible Janis Carter!!!) as well as VOICE OF THE WHISTLER, THE THIRTEENTH HOUR and SECRET OF THE WHISTLER. All six WHISTLER films presented in

BRAND NEW RESTORED 35mm STUDIO PRINTS!

Marvel too at six RARE United Artists noir gems from the 1950s: Jacques Tourneur’s cold-war thriller THE FEARMAKERS starring Dana Andrews; Phil Karlson’s gritty gem 99 RIVER STREET with John Payne and Evelyn Keyes; the freakishly strange NIGHTMARE with Kevin McCarthy and Edward G. Robinson (from a story by Woolrich); Ed McBain’s low-down, rough and sleazy COP HATER with Robert Loggia; SHIELD FOR MURDER directed by and starring noir icon Edmond O’Brien; and Henry Silva in the ultra-violent late-model ‘63 Rat Pack noir JOHNNY COOL. ALL PRESENTED IN 35mm STUDIO ARCHIVE PRINTS!

Peppered liberally with ultra-rare 16mm B noirs from the hidden vaults and libraries of private collectors!! NONE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE ON DVD!!

Programmed exclusively for The Roxie Theater by Elliot Lavine!
