21st Annual Noir City Film Festival

Grand Lake Theater, Oakland

7:30 PM, Ages: All


The world's most popular film noir festival, NOIR CITY, returns to Oakland's Grand Lake Theatre January 19-28, 2024, for its 21st year.


Elevator to the Gallows | Ascenseur pour l’échafaud

France, 1958. Dir. Louis Malle. 91 min.

Louis Malle bridges classic noir and the French New Wave with peerless style. An adulterous couple’s slick plot to murder the woman’s husband collides with a pair of bungling teens acting out their nihilistic crime-movie fantasies. Jeanne Moreau is immortalized as she takes the greatest nocturnal stroll in cinema history as Miles Davis’ improvised score caresses her like a night breeze. Meanwhile, Maurice Ronet’s attempts to escape a stalled elevator become a mesmerizing visual poem of entrapment. French noir doesn’t come any cooler than this.

In French with English subtitles



United Kingdom, 1962. Dir. Vernon Sewell. 80 min.

A programmer with no well-known actors, this obscurity exploits a unique premise: A trio of crooks knocks over a suburban London bank at Saturday closing, leaving the manager and his secretary locked in the vault. Dissention roils the gang, however, when they realize Monday is Easter holiday and the captives will suffocate before being discovered. Not wanting to add murder their résumés, the crooks must break back into the bank while still evading capture. A film that had been all-but-forgotten—until this NOIR CITY revival!
