Join the Kiggins Theatre and our friends at Niche Wine Bar as we continue our Noir Nights film series pairing film noir classics with wines influenced by the films!
Our first three films of 2020 pair the legendary Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake!
First up on January 12th we have 1942’s classic THIS GUN FOR HIRE in which Ladd plays assassin Philip Raven who shoots a blackmailer and his beautiful female companion dead and is then paid off in marked bills by his treasonous employer who is working with foreign spies.
In THE GLASS KEY dirty politics are front and center as a crooked politician (Brian Donlevy) tries to clean up his past connections to the mob with the help of his right hand man Ed Beaumont (Ladd). This doesn’t sit well with the mobster Nick Varna (Joseph Calleia). Murder and mayhem commence. See it February 16th!
And our “trilogy” concludes on March 8th with 1946’s THE BLUE DAHLIA in which Johnny (Ladd) returns home from the Navy to find that his wife Helen (Doris Dowling) has hooked up with local nightclub owner Eddie (Howard Da Silva). When Helen turns up dead, Johnny is the prime suspect and he and sultry Joyce (Lake) try to prove his innocence while falling in love.
