NIFF Summer Film Series - Chinatown

Tickets are $25 and include a private reception with food and wine in the Lobby/Bar of Theater 12 (across the landing from the main theaters) from 6:30-7.

This cinema classic directed by Roman Polanski and winner of six Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Actress, is a brilliant example of neo-noir. It’s 1937 in Los Angeles and there’s a war going on to control the municipal water supply. Jake Gittes (Jack Nicholson) is a private detective hired to find evidence that Hollis Mulwray (Darrell Zwerling), the builder of the city’s water system, is having an affair. Jake gets photos of Hollis with a young girl and thinks his job is done. But he soon finds himself embroiled in a complex web of corruption, deceit and murder along with the beautiful Evelyn Mulwray (Faye Dunaway) and Hollis’ business partner, Noah Cross (John Huston).

    I am so sorry I will not be able to attend this meetup. I have a friend coming to the area and I have not seen her in over 20 years. She lives in Puerto Rico. So, I will be driving upstate to see her and meet her son for the first time (he's 19!) I still plan to come to the meetup on 9/4.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
