Year in and year out, Eddie Muller and the Film Noir Foundation team deliver an impeccably curated selection of film noir, combining canonical classics with wonderful rarities ripe for rediscovery. Following the flagship edition of the festival, held earlier this year at San Francisco’s famed Castro Theatre, all of the selections in this year’s edition of Noir City DC are double features, inspired by the mid-century Hollywood tradition of pairing top-tier studio “A” pictures with shorter, lower-budget second features, or “B” films, during their release. Select screenings will be introduced by TCM hosts Alan K. Rode and Eddie Muller.

11th Anniversary NOIR CITY CHICAGO

Alan K. Rode co-hosts a sterling line-up of classic film noir (to be announced — please check this space) which once again will be held at Chicago’s’ gorgeous Music Box Theatre — a classic itself.

Music Box Theatre
3733 N Southport Ave, Chicago, IL 60613


CHICAGO’S VENUE FOR INDEPENDENT, FOREIGN, CULT AND CLASSIC FILMS

Turn onto Southport Avenue and it’s hard to resist the neon beacon that lures cinephiles from across Chicagoland with eight flickering letters—Music Box. It’s a promise of more than just entertainment, but a total experience. It’s a community of strangers coming together over the anticipation of that familiar red velvet curtain rising toward the twinkling, star-covered ceiling. It’s a symbol of Chicago’s go-to venue for independent, foreign, cult, and classic films.

Walk by the ticket window and step back in time to when the ‘20s were still roaring and the theatre first opened—just two months before The Great Depression—on August 22, 1929. It was a time before fluorescent lighting, megaplexes, and artificial butter. And although our ticket prices have changed slightly over the past 90 or so years, the butter on our popcorn is still real.

Each of our theatre’s 800 seats has a story to tell. The stories are more colorful than the decades of films projected here; of first dates that took place under the starry sky; of family traditions revolving around the annual White Christmas singalong; of the ghost some say haunts the theatre to this day. Join us, and make a few memories of your own. It’s certain to be an experience as unforgettable as the film itself.

The Music Box Theatre is independently owned and operated by the Southport Music Box Corporation. SMBC, through its Music Box Films division, also distributes foreign and independent films in the theatrical, DVD and television markets throughout the United States.
