Light and Noir Film Festival and Museum Pass
The California Museum, The Film Noir Foundation, and The Crest Theatre Bring you "The Light & Noir Film Festival". The festival includes screenings of “Double Indemnity” (1944) at 5:00 p.m, and “Sunset Boulevard” (1950) at 7:30 p.m, both featured in the California Museum’s installation of the traveling exhibit “Light & Noir: Exiles & Émigrés in Hollywood, 1933-1950.” In addition, a Q&A with Eddie Muller, Film Noir Foundation Founder and President, and host of Turner Classic Movies’ “Noir Alley,” will explore the legacy of legendary director Billy Wilder, a refugee from Nazi persecution during WWII whose legacy of achievements defined the film noir genre and shaped Hollywood’s Golden Age. Additional festivities include a 1940s-1950s costume contest, custom cocktails from the theatre’s adjoining Empress Tavern and more. Admission price includes Both Films, and Museum Admission!
