The Athenaeum’s outdoor movie series, “Flicks on the Bricks” makes it possible for you to enjoy classic movies that you love while enjoying the beautiful summer night on the patio of the Athenaeum. San Diego NOIR is the First Ever Showcase of Film Noir in America’s Finest City Curated by KPBS film critic and Cinema Junkie Podcast host Beth Accomando and noir aficionado D. A. Kolodenko. FILM NOIR (which literally means black film) is a term coined by French film critics to describe a style of cinema that emerged in the 1940s and revealed a darkness and cynicism that challenged audiences with something new. These films were rooted in hard-boiled crime fiction and were often brought to the screen by European émigré directors. With so many great films noir to choose from, this series focuses on films with a San Diego connection. Each film will be introduced by Accomando and Kolodenko, and they will place the film in a context and highlight the San Diego connection.

Brush up on your TRIVIA as there will be PRIZES and GIVEAWAYS at each screening.
