The Big Combo (1955) Tuesday, May 10th, 7 p.m. at the Darkside Cinema

Starring Cornel Wilde, Richard Conte, Brian Donlevy and Jean Wallace, directed by Joseph H. Lewis.
This hard boiled noir masterpiece was shot by the incomparable John Alton, and stars the great Cornel Wilde in his first CMNYK appearance. Richard Conte is the crime boss Mr. BigComboScreeningPRINTBrown, and Wilde is the police lieutenant who uses unorthodox means to corner him. Even going after his girlfriend.  Prepare for shadows, fog, smoke, black hearts, black ties and blackouts. Film-noir returns to the Darkside.
This CMNYK screening is going down at the Darkside Cinema on Tuesday, May 10th, and the fun starts at 7:00 PM. As always, admission is FREE, but donations are welcomed and benefit the Darkside Cinema renovations. The show will be preceded by an intro from a person who knows almost nothing about real estate, Ygal Kaufman, as well as newsreels, shorts, cartoons, TV commercials and other weird treats from 1955 to make the experience extra authentic. See you all there!
