Step right up! The NOIR BAZAAR is back in business at the Brauer Museum.

The popular film/lecture series THURSDAY NIGHT NOIR, hosted by Peter Aglinskas, creator of the lecture series “The Noir Style in Image, Word, and Sound,” returns to the Brauer Museum of Art on the campus of Valparaiso University for its sixth season of fun and informative forays into the shadowy world of noir. Step right up and help yourself to a dee-luxe assortment of crooked cops and jive-crazy hep cats, Sinister sirens and high-class heists, B-girls and bagmen…and a zombie gangster who gets the last laugh. Now THAT’s some bizarre noir!

Four iconic movies representing distinct themes and eras of film noir will be featured:

January 16: Decoy (1946)

February 20: D.O.A. (1950)

March 19: Private Hell 36 (1954)

April 16: The Burglar (1957)

A lecture/discussion will follow each screening. Events start at 7 p.m. CST and are free and open to the public.
