The 2019 Noir City festival presents classic films that will take audiences to the darkest and most dangerous places a film lover can go. Many of these films are newly restored, and each film will be introduced by our guest Eddie Muller, the incomparable impresario of Noir City.
Join us at 6:00 PM for a special pre-show performance from jazz band The Dmitri Methany Group, who will be playing 1950s movie themes and crime jazz.
Dmitri Matheny vaulted onto the jazz scene in the 1990s as the protégé of jazz legend Art Farmer. Since then he has garnered critical acclaim and a loyal international following, touring extensively throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia, traveling to 19 countries. With over 100 recordings to his credit, Dmitri Matheny has released 11 albums as a leader. His latest is Jazz Noir, a fresh spin on crime jazz, film noir movie themes and timeless classics. The San Francisco Chronicle calls Matheny “one of the jazz world’s most talented horn players.”
