Alamo Drafthouse: Bringing back “Act of Killing,” throwing a Noir fest
The Alamo Drafthouse is bringing back to theaters the Oscar-nominated documentary “The Act of Killing,” which Drafthouse Films distributed. Check here for times.
The Drafthouse is also throwing a totally excellent-looking “Noir City: Austin” mini-festival Feb. 28 to March 2. The screenings will be hosted by Film Noir Foundation president Eddie Muller.
Tickets for each of the NOIR CITY: AUSTIN screenings are on sale here or follow the ticketing links below.
Now, I love a good festival of noir as well as, or way more than, the next movie nerd, but man, having this so close to SXSW is…let me put it this way: Anyone want to do a festival of this sort in April, May, June, July or August, when we will be starved for an excuse to have a bunch of cool old movies, complete with air conditioning,I will be there with bells on and bring all of my friends.
