Time for fall noir at Seattle Art Museum

As these summer days grow shorter (aren’t they? please?), some of us start thinking longingly of crisp leaves, cool twilights, and long shadows. It’s the right time of year for film, and Seattle Art Museum knows it.  Quite possibly the longest-running film noir series in the world, SAM’s 37th annual series “Live By Night” begins September 25th with an irresistible combination: “The Maltese Falcon” and Top Pot Doughnuts. The series continues Thursday nights through December 18 (with a two-week break around Thanksgiving) with nine films total, all showing in 35mm. The series ends with a modern noir filmed right in our own backyard: David Mamet’s “House of Games,” made in Seattle and released in 1987. Tickets are on sale now; series passes are $68 for nonmembers and $63 for SAM, SIFF, NWFF or TheFilmSchool members, and available here.

Here’s the delightfully retro trailer for “House of Games”; see if you recognize a few of those street corners.
