The Fifth Annual Festival of Film Noir

Guild Cinema spends its final week pulling classic '50s crime films filled with tough guys and dangerous dames from out of the shadowy vaults. This week features some incredible two-for-one double feature parings. Friday and Saturday, it's a game of cat-and-mouse when childhood friends grow up to land on opposite sides of the law in Cry of the City and a rare screening of the real-life, death-row drama Cell 2455. Sunday and Monday, we get a strange, genre-bending bag with the low-budget French eye-tickler The Black Book and bizarre Western noir Terror in a Texas Town . Tuesday and Wednesday are all about the seething race taboos of the '50s, with The Crimson Kimono (in which a Japanese-American cop has a tryst with a white woman, not to mention its murdered-stripper plot), and Sidney Poitier as a young doctor who's terrorized by a dead patient's bigoted brother in No Way Out.
