Film Noir Summer

Film Noir is sometimes called “the cinema of the disenchanted.” A genre known for its darkness in appearance and in sentiment, film noir experienced a golden age after WWII. Our Film Noir Summer series, part of our 35mm Classic Film Series, celebrates this important artform.

From the acclaimed masterpiece “The Maltese Falcon” starring Humphrey Bogart and Mary Astor, to the Billy Wilder and Raymond Chandler penned “Double Indemnity,” UCPAC is proud to present these legendary movies on our big screen, as they were meant to be seen.

“For me, the cinema is not a slice of life, but a piece of cake.”
