Starts Sat, Oct. 1
Join us for a new monthly late-night series showcasing classic, soon-to-be classic and should-be-classic horror, sci-fi, action, fantasy and cross-genre gems hand-picked by the AFI Silver programming team. We promise deep cuts — sometimes literally — underrated classics, sneak peeks, new restorations and all-time favorites up on the big screen, the way late-night movies are meant to be seen!
The series kicks off on Sat, Oct. 1 with a new restoration of Mexican director René Cardona's wild, wrestling-infused 1968 superhero movie THE BATWOMAN [LA MUJER MURCIÉLAGO], newly restored by Permanencia Voluntaria Archive and screening as part of this year's AFI Latin American Film Festival.
Monthly selections will be announced on an ongoing basis and appear below.
Oct. 28–Nov. 3
Two early announcements appear below. The full series lineup will be announced in Sept.!
Year in and year out, Eddie Muller and the Film Noir Foundation team deliver an impeccably curated selection of films noir, combining canonical classics with wonderful rarities ripe for rediscovery. The Noir City DC festival returns with a selection of titles featured earlier this year at Noir City's flagship festival in Oakland, including the new Film Noir Foundation restoration of Cy Endfield's rarely seen 1948 directorial debut THE ARGYLE SECRETS.
Film Noir Foundation founder Eddie Muller, host of TCM's Noir Alley, will introduce screenings on the festival's opening weekend, Oct. 14–16. Film historian Foster Hirsch will introduce screenings Oct. 21–23.
The Film Noir Foundation (FNF), created by writer and film historian Eddie Muller, is committed to rescuing and restoring America's noir heritage. All FNF proceeds from Noir City festivals go to finding and restoring films in danger of being lost or permanently damaged. For information on how to join the FNF's campaign, visit FilmNoirFoundation.org.
Special thanks to the Film Noir Foundation for their invaluable work, including Eddie Muller, Alan K. Rode, Foster Hirsch, Daryl Sparks and Katherine Majeed.

The Silent Cinema Showcase returns with another selection of newly restored screen classics and rare gems from the silent era. Silent filmmaking was an art form unto itself, one that sound films may have replaced, but did not necessarily surpass. Join us for one of the largest showcases of silent cinema in North America and meet some of the dedicated and talented musicians who bring these films to life with their inventive accompaniment, including Ben Model, Andrew Simpson, Donald Sosin, Joanna Seaton, Anvil Orchestra (formerly Alloy Orchestra), Not So Silent Cinema and Silent Orchestra, who will kick things off with our annual screening of F. W. Murnau's NOSFERATU on October 28 in celebration of the film's 100th anniversary.
Tickets $15/$13 AFI Members, except where noted.
