Classic Film Noir Comes to Pearland, and Our Top 5 Noir Films Ever

Tuesday night the Pearland Theatre Guild is celebrating the complicated and dark world of film noir with Noir Nights: Film Noir Social Mixer. The event invites guests to mix and mingle with fellow noir-loving locals while noshing on food and drinks. They even suggest dressing to kill, so to speak, in vintage attire. The real highlight of the evening will be a screening of the film Detour.

Detour may not be the most widely known film, but over the years it has been noted by many as a classic. The film stars Tom Neal and the sassy Ann Savage as two strangers who happen upon each other on the road. Like any good noir, the plot takes various twists and turns, and in the end you find yourself back where you started and probably just as confused. If you've got nothing to do tonight, slap on a fedora and make your way over to Pearland (it's not that far).
