Brown Paper Tickets

Tickets for the 2014 NOIR CITY at San Francisco's Castro Theatre, January 24—February 2, are available through Brown Paper Tickets. Patrons will also be able to purchase tickets for the same low price of $10 per program at the Castro box office on the day of show.

Skip the lines. Buy a NOIR CITY 12 Passport.
The Passport grants the bearer entry to all 27 films in this year's program, to the 6 p.m. opening-night pass holders' reception on the Castro mezzanine and early admittance to the theater for all shows—all for the incredible price of $120. It's also the perfect holiday gift for the noir lover in your life! Passports can be purchased through Brown Paper Tickets,

SF MuniAccommodations for NOIR CITY 12
If you're an out-of-towner looking for lodging in the City by the Bay or you're a local looking to turn a night at the festival into a romantic getaway, our friends at the Prescott Hotel have an offer you can't refuse—a special nightly rate of $155 per night (before taxes) exclusively for NC12 attendees. This boutique hotel, located only two blocks from Union Square and housed in the city's original Press Club, possesses a vintage feel and is only a short ride by Metro or taxi from the Castro Theatre. The Prescott will be providing classic film noir entertainment to its guests at their nightly wine hour throughout the festival as well as a complimentary Pinot Noir flight with dinner (when NOIR CITY is mentioned) at the adjacent (and acclaimed) Postrio restaurant. Follow our direct link for more information or to book a room at the special NOIR CITY rate.
