PART OF THE LINCOLN FILM SERIES NOIRVEMBER 2023
For the first three Tuesdays in November, join us at the Lincoln Theatre to watch a classic Film Noir -- in glorious 35mm! Noirvember is back!
One of Orson Welles' greatest accomplishments -- and that's a high bar -- is the towering masterpiece of cinema Touch of Evil. Widely considered to be the last of the "classic noir" period of Hollywood; its sophisticated camerawork and willingness to indulge in the grim and perverse reflects this.
When a car bomb explodes on the American side of the U.S./Mexico border, Mexican drug enforcement agent Miguel Vargas (Charlton Heston) begins his investigation, along with American police captain Hank Quinlan (Orson Welles). When Vargas begins to suspect that Quinlan and his shady partner Menzies (Joseph Calleia) are planting evidence to frame an innocent man, his investigations into their possible corruption quickly put himself and his new bride, Susie (Janet Leigh), in jeopardy.
