San Francisco Film Noir Festival: Noir City Heads To Castro Theatre

The Steve Jobs film is apparently "embarrassing," "Fruitvale" doesn't have a release date yet and, with the recent will-they-or-won't-they intrigue surrounding the release of "The Canyons," our movie-going hearts just can't take it anymore.

Thankfully, there's the San Francisco Film Noir Festival, Noir City.

Starting Friday night, the Castro Theatre will host its annual ode to noir. And with 27 films, they're bringing all the suspense, intrigue and betrayal you can handle.

The theatre will kick off the festival will a special guests appearance from noir star Peggy Cummins who will introduce her 1950 film "Gun Crazy," and then stick around for a post-show interview. After that, it's a week and a half of all-day noir. (Eat your heart out, Sundance.)

Still can't get enough? Hit the Noir City Nightclub next weekend and "party like it's 1949."

Check out a few of the noir films that will be featured at the festival in our slideshow below:
