The Island Theatre presents Friday Night at the Movies featuring “The Maltese Falcon” (NR). $5.00 admission. Beer and wine cash bar.

Film Noir is a cinema genre and style featuring a hard-boiled, anti-hero protagonist; a femme fatale; tight, concise dialogue; high-contrast lighting and a sense of disillusionment. “The Maltese Falcon” is a prime example of the genre. It is considered one of the greatest films of all time, and it was one of the first 25 films selected by the Library of Congress to be included in the National Film Registry for being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.

San Francisco private detective Sam Spade takes on a case that involves him with three eccentric criminals, a gorgeous liar, and their quest for a priceless statuette, with the stakes rising after his partner is murdered.

” A movie we not only love, but treasure.” – Roger Ebert
“One of the best examples of action-filled and suspenseful melodramatic story telling.” – Variety
“An unassailable triumph of script, casting, direction and editing.” – The New York Times
