Noir City 2k19: Film Noir in the 1950s


(KISS ME DEADLY, an awesome 50’s noir that PULP FICTION totally jacked for the whole “what’s in the suitcase” angle)

Noir City v. 17

One of my favorite film genres, hosted by a noir savant (Eddie Mueller from TCM’s Noir Alley), held in a classic theater (The Castro)…that I cannot go to because the seating in The Castro is, literally, murder for my back. Srsly, I went for a double-bill on my happy-to-escape-The-Moms-womb-day last year and was in agony for 3-hours and for the next couple of days.

But if you’re not 6’4”, 275 lbs, you should be ok. Well, ok enough, my special-lady-friend/hetero life-partner is 5’11”, thin, and she also had a rough go of it both during and after the flicks we caught last year.

While I wouldn’t give up being tall for anything, there are a few drawbacks, and seating at The Castro is DEF one of them.

Originally "The Central Hotel", built by Edward Rolkin in 1907, 574 3rd St: Central Apartments used to consist of 440 small rooms and several storefronts across the first floor, including a large saloon and dining room. Currently family-owned and managed, over the past 44-years Central Apartments has been converted to the thriving multi-family apartment community it is today. Couple constant upgrades and renovations with astute attention to detail and CNT is now a bona fide fixture of the SoMa/South Beach area, a multi-family apartment community that features a total of 102 apartments. From our smallest studios to our two studios with storage lofts to our two junior one-bedrooms to our one-bedrooms to our one two-bedroom, all our apartments are wired for high-speed internet and boast updated plumbing lines and electrical fixtures. Combine that with our usual apartment amenities - granite countertops, hardwood floors (entry, living room, bedroom), granite tile floors (kitchen and bathroom), gas stoves, range hoods, sturdy cabinetry, along with the fact that we include all utilities (excluding internet and cable service) with the monthly rental charge? Located three blocks from Giants Stadium, Chase Center right up the way and practically across the street from the lush oasis of South Park, we boast a perfect 100 Transit Score.
