It's back! The Kit Film Noir Festival is returning to Columbia's Lenfest Center for the Arts for the second year in a row. And just like last year, it's open to the public.
"Into the Night: Cornell Woolrich and Film Noir" focuses on the work of short story master Cornell Woolrich, a former student at Columbia.
Although contemporaries such as Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett tend to be more recognized, Woolrich was equally (if not more) prolific. His pulp fiction was adapted into films by directors including Alfred Hitchcock and François Truffaut.
Running from Wednesday, March 27 through Sunday, March 31, the series will screen 12 adaptations of Woolrich's work, from Deadline at Dawn to The Bride Wore Black. Hitchcock's masterpiece Rear Window will close out the festival on Sunday.
Advance tickets are available online and are $12 for general admission, $10 for seniors and $8 for students.
