Casting Dark Shadows:

Film Noir Revisited

August 7 – September 2

To throw a little shade into the August sunshine, the Gene Siskel Film Center presents “Casting Dark Shadows: Film Noir Revisited,” a tribute to the perennially fascinating cycle of moody crime movies that arose from the anxieties of post-World War II America. The eight-film series runs from August 7 through September 2.

Included in the series are recent digital restorations of the classics THE THIRD MAN and THE LADY FROM SHANGHAI, 35mm screenings of the underappreciated gems PUSHOVER and CRISS CROSS, and new digital restorations of two Britnoir rarities, CAST A DARK SHADOW and CORRIDOR OF MIRRORS.
