Eddie Muller issued the following statement today on Facebook:
NOIR CITY: HOLLYWOOD—CANCELED. With much regret, but with a far greater concern for the safety of our loyal patrons, the Film Noir Foundation is postponing the current Noir City: Hollywood film festival at the Egyptian Theatre. The decision was reached in cooperation the American Cinematheque, the venue host and operator and our partner in noir the past 22 years. We hope to reschedule the remainder of the program later this year; An announcement will be forthcoming as developments in this unprecedented health crisis become clearer.
If you have already purchased tickets:
Advance tickets bought via Fandango will be automatically refunded. If you already purchased tickets in-person at the theatre, you can get a refund at the box office with your credit card. If you paid cash for an advance ticket, you will get a voucher for an upcoming show.
I personally thank all the terrific people who attended the festival this year. We all hoped that the situation would not reach this point. I look forward to seeing all of you at festivals in the future, once we (the collective “we”) have a handle on this situation.
Best of luck to everyone. Take this seriously. Stay safe.
