Movies to see this weekend? All Noir City, all the time, baby

There are all sorts of movies to see this weekend, but may I direct your attention to the third annual “Noir City Austin” festival?

Fallen_Sparrow_poster_240_355_81_s_c1There are seven double features over the course of three days, full of dames and guns and folks up to no good.

Each double bill features an original “A” and “B” title from a given year, so a well-known noir classic such as Fritz Lang’s “Scarlet Street” plays alongside a rarity such as Julien Duvivier’s amazingly titled “Flesh and Fantasy.”

All the films are presented in restored or carefully preserved 35mm prints and hosted by Film Noir Foundation founder Eddie Muller.

Check out the full slate at the Austin Movie Blog

Here is a link to tickets for the first screening.
