Film Noir at the Castro Theater: Quiet Please, Murder and This Gun For Hire
How about an afternoon of Film Noir? This festival has become an annual event for our group. Please be sure to buy your ticket in advance as many of the films in this festival do sell out. Please choose the matinée ticket, the time says 1 pm but it is fine to use it for the 3 pm start time. Buy your ticket here: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3210655 Let's meet at Blush Wine bar outside on the sidewalk at 2:30-2:44 and then walk over to the Castro Theater at 2:45 sharp (429 Castro) for this Film Noir double feature. The ticket price includes both films. Afterwards we will probably reconvene at Blush Wine Bar or somewhere else in the neighborhood for some drinks and/or appetizers. Films: QUIET PLEASE, MURDER George Sanders is a cunning forger who teams up with femme fatale Gail Patrick to swindle gullible art patrons. His ultimate coup, to steal and replicate a priceless Shakespeare folio, turns into a crazy hostage drama when the priceless artifact ends up as a needle in a haystack—hidden somewhere in the Los Angeles Public Library! This indescribably daffy and surprisingly racy rarity is an example of the 20th Century–Fox B-unit at its very best! Archival 35mm Print—Not on DVD! THIS GUN FOR HIRE One of the seminal films in Hollywood's noir movement, this taut thriller made stars of Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake, who'd become Paramount's biggest box-office duo of the forties. Ladd plays lone-wolf assassin Philip Raven, who enlists Lake's aid in freeing himself from a frame-up by a secret cadre of "fifth columnists." John Seitz' camerawork presages the shadowy dread he'd bring to sunny Los Angeles in Double Indemnity. Co-starring Robert Preston, Laird Cregar, and Lake's amazing costumes, courtesy of Edith Head. A must-see! Liability Disclaimer: The organizers of this meet-up are unpaid volunteers and not expert hiking guides.

    What we're about

    Public Group

    We like to do walks/urban hikes mostly on week-end afternoons. Walks usually start at 12 or 1 at a public transportation friendly starting point and end around 5:30 or 6ish with a get together afterwards. The after hike gathering is optional and non-drinkers are welcome. Some of our walks are dog friendly. Sometimes, we just go on a random urban adventure. We also like movies/films/art and we may schedule some film or art events as well.

    No Show Policy: No-shows are not appreciated. Chronic no-shows are really not appreciated. If you sign up for an event and find you can no longer attend, please change your RSVP to NO. Chronic no-shows will be disallowed from signing up for future events. Thanks for your understanding.

    Important Information: If you are late for a hike, it is very hard to catch up with us, because we keep moving. We walk at a medium pace. Escorts (also known as sweeps) are not provided, so slower walkers should be completely prepared to finish the hike on their own if they become separated from the group, and they may want to consider bringing a friend to walk with them. We reserve the right to make small changes to the route as needed.

    Dog Information: If you ask us if you can bring a dog, and we say yes, this just means that we don't mind if you bring your dog. It does not mean that we have scoped out the entire route to see if there are any signs prohibiting dogs. You will need to keep your eyes out for these signs and you may need to reroute and meet us later on the route. You are 100% responsible for any issues or consequences regarding your dog on the hike or event.

    ID and the After Hike Gathering: Some of the places where we go after our hikes require ID for entry, regardless of your age. Please bring your ID if you plan to attend happy hour.
