The 11th Annual Arthur Lyons Film Noir Festival will take place from May 12th to the 15th (Thu-Sun), 2011. This one of a kind event was founded in 2000 by the late mystery author Arthur Lyons. The focus is showing the best print possible of these noir gems which often haven't been shown on the big screen since their release in the forties and fifties. These mostly black and white films are characterized by their low lighting emphasis, criminal and lusty situations and high suspense.
The event, which takes place in Palm Springs, has everything. Great movies, silver screen stars, passionate film lovers and ample autograph and book signing opportunities. Cafe Cinema is sponsoring a one day drive down to the festival (on the weekend). Please stay posted.
