The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center is pleased to present a new Film Noir Classics Series sponsored by Deb and Bill Ryan. A cinematic style popularized through 1940s and ‘50s crime dramas,  film noir  is distinct in its dark visuals and themes, and often employs low-key lighting and cynical plots. “Film noir” is French for “black film” but is rooted in German Expressionist cinematography. Considered “neo-noir” — inspired by film noir but with updated visuals, content, and style — Roman Polanski’s Chinatown is a 1974 mystery about the California Water Wars starring Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway. The film was added to the National Film Registry and won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. http://www.mahaiwe.org/Chinatown(1974)
