The sixteenth edition of the Arthur Lyons Film Noir Festival is set to open on Thursday night, May 14th, and run through Sunday, May 17th, 2015. The complete schedule, which includes an outstanding list of noir favorites, can be seen online in its entirety at http://www.arthurlyonsfilmnoir.org. Tickets and passes can also be purchased online, or at the Camelot Theatres Box Office.
“The 2015 program promises to be one of our finest combinations of proven and obscure cinematic gems,” said Alan Rode, Festival Producer and Host. “From our opener of the recent classic MILLER’S CROSSING to traditional masterpieces including THE BIG CLOCK, PANIC IN THE STREETS, ON DANGEROUS GROUND and discoveries including CHICAGO CALLING, TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY, and ABANDONED, the Camelot Theater remains the PERFECT venue to enjoy the best of noir on the big screen.”
“Along with our opening night guest appearance by renowned actor Jon Polito,” Rode continued, “I am gratified to present the Library of Congress’s recent restoration of Joseph Losey’s M with a return visit by the amazing Norman Lloyd who celebrated his centennial last November. Also scheduled to join us again is a duo of noted cinema biographers: J.R. Jones (ON DANGEROUS GROUND) and Steven C. Smith (HANGOVER SQUARE). Film Noir Foundation President Eddie Muller and noted film scholar Foster Hirsch will also be in attendance and are scheduled for film introductions and guest interviews.
All Film Noir screenings will be held at Camelot Theatres, 2300 E. Baristo Road in Palm Springs.
