From SummerScreen to SummerStarz to Nitehawk Outdoors and more, there has been no shortage of free movies in North Brooklyn this summer. The selections tend towards straight forward entertainment, often in celebration of youth culture reminiscent of the recent past. They’re the kinds of movies that work ok as a backdrop while you sit in the park with friends and converse in not-so-quiet whispers in between sips of your wine or beer. It’s budget friendly and fun. And it doesn’t really matter what movie is playing.
Not the case in “Night of Noir.” It is not only indoors in a proper screening room, but the overall event is very much centered around the movie. Each selection is part of a curated series of classics from a much earlier era and inspires thoughts like “There were heroin addict dens then?” as opposed to “What is Alicia Silverstone up to now?”
