Noir City Detroit returns for its sixth year to Detroit’s famous Redford Theater with a focus on 1948 films to celebrate the 75th anniversary of black and white films. The eight screenings will be hosted by Eddie Muller, renowned author, president of the Film Noir Foundation and a leading figure in film restoration and preservation. Muller will also sign copies of his latest book, Eddie Muller’s Noir Bar: cocktails inspired by the world of film noir, at 7 p.m. on opening night Friday. Festival screenings begin Friday at 8 p.m. with two 35mm presentations: that of John Huston Large Key and that of Anthony Mann Raw deal. The suspense of Anatole Litvak Wrong number sorry will be played on Saturday afternoon, while the Saturday evening features will be those of Robert Wise. Odds against tomorrow and the tender tragedy of Nicholas Ray They live at night. The festivities will end on Sunday with a double matinee: John Farrow’s biting film The big clock and Frank Borzage’s haunting Southern Gothic noir Moonrise. A $50 all-access pass provides access to all eight films, a commemorative poster, plus a private reception and on-stage Q&A with Muller at 5:30 p.m. Saturday.
