NOIR CITY: CHICAGO returns to the Music Box Theatre August 25 - 31, 2017, with an epically suspenseful series of criminal capers! "The Big Knockover" celebrates the history of the heist film from black-and-white Hollywood classics such as THE ASPHALT JUNGLE (1950) and KANSAS CITY CONFIDENTIAL (1952), to 1974's THE TAKING OF PELHAM ONE TWO THREE, to the stunning contemporary thriller from Argentina EL AURA (2005). This year's focus on hold-ups, heists, and schemes gone awry provides the perfect opportunity to venture beyond the 1940s and '50s to show how noir has expanded and transformed over the decades.
