The Arthur Lyons Film Noir Festival:
Founded in 2000 by the late mystery author and Palm Springs community leader Arthur Lyons, this unique festival features an eclectic mixture of landmark and obscure vintage movies from the classic film noir era. Laden with period post war cynicism, these glorious black and white films are laden with suspense, sexuality and crime portrayed from the perspective of the criminals.
Each year, the festival showcases the best of film noir accentuated by a scintillating array of movie stars who appear on stage for post screening Q&A discussions, autographs and book signings.

All of the Palm Springs Cultural Center’s Film events take place at the Camelot Theatres in Palm Springs (2300 E Baristo Rd., Palm Springs, CA 92262) where it is possible to see and hear films better than virtually any other movie house in Southern California.
