Hollywood Film Noir Fest Includes Lorre Film

Peter Lorre fans attending the 17th annual Noir City film noir festival in Hollywood will have the opportunity to catch a restored 35mm print of the 1946 thriller The Chase at the Egyptian Theatre on Friday, April 10, 2015. Based on the Cornell Woolrich novel The Black Path of Fear, The Chase is the first on a Woolrich double-feature, followed by The Leopard Man (1943).

The program will begin at 7:30 pm with an introduction by Alan K. Rode of the Film Noir Foundation.

Admission is $7 for American Cinematheque members, and $11 non-members of all ages. Tickets may be purchased on-line through Fandango or by calling Fandango at (800) FANDANGO and entering the Egyptian’s theater code – 2206 – when prompted. A processing fee will be added to any tickets purchased on-line.

Tickets may also be purchased at the Egyptian’s box office, which opens 90 minutes before the first feature of the day.

The Egyptian is located at 6712 Hollywood Boulevard, between Las Palmas and McCadden, in Hollywood, California.

Parking is available at the Hollywood and Highland parking complex. The Egyptian is also a short walk from the Hollywood and Highland metro station. More information about parking is available on the cinema’s website.

The Noir City film festival, which opened on Friday, April 3, will continue through Sunday, April 19. The full schedule is available on the Egyptian Theatre website.

In the pages of The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre (2005), Stephen D. Youngkin discusses the filming of The Chase through interviews with lead actor Robert Cummings.

The Lost One is available on the Kindle and Nook, as well as hard-back and soft-bound editions.
