photographic and illustrated art for Arthur Lyons Film Noir Festival 2017


Join us at the Camelot Theaters in Palm Springs on May 11-14 2017


Founded in 2000 by the late mystery author and Palm Springs community leader Arthur Lyons, this unique festival features an eclectic mixture of landmark and obscure vintage movies from the classic film noir era. Laden with period post war cynicism, these glorious black and white films are laden with suspense, sexuality and crime portrayed from the perspective of the criminals. Alan K. Rode has produced and hosted the festival for the past teh years. Each year, the festival showcases the best of film noir accentuated by a scintillating array of movie stars who appear on stage for post screening discussions, autographs and book signings.
