Event Description
Noir Night Out (Chili, Beer & a Movie)

We love film noir, we love chili, and we love beer - so we're combining all three in our first Noir Night Out!

 Grab a bowl of chili - meat or veggie versions - made from scratch from Robert Mitchum's own "Chili Wonder" recipe (the secret is just a hint of chocolate). Pair it with a nice craft noir beer (stout or dark ale), and choose your favorite seats to catch the quintessential film noir title Out of the Past (1947), starring Robert Mitchum, Jane Greer and Kirk Douglas. 
Purchase of a $12 regular or $10 member ticket includes chili, and comes with two complimentary drink tickets.  For those who don't imbibe, choose one of our locally-made Red Ribbon sodas instead. 

 Doors open at 7:00pm and the film rolls at 7:30pm. 
"In a 2004 review of the film, critic Roger Ebert wrote "Out of the Past is one of the greatest of all film noirs, the story of a man who tries to break with his past and his weakness and start over again in a town, with a new job and a new girl. The film stars Robert Mitchum, whose weary eyes and laconic voice, whose very presence as a violent man wrapped in indifference, made him an archetypal noir actor. The story opens before we've even seen him, as trouble comes to town looking for him. A man from his past has seen him pumping gas, and now his old life reaches out and pulls him back." Ebert also called it, "The greatest cigarette-smoking movie of all time." "The trick, as demonstrated by Jacques Tourneur and his cameraman, Nicholas Musuraca, is to throw a lot of light into the empty space where the characters are going to exhale. When they do, they produce great white clouds of smoke, which express their moods, their personalities and their energy levels. There were guns in Out of the Past, but the real hostility came when Robert Mitchum and Kirk Douglas smoked at each other."

In 1991, Out of the Past was added to the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.
