Noir Nights: “Out of the Past”

The Kiggins Theatre and Niche Wine Bar & Bistro are teaming up for the next “Noir Nights” film-and-wine pairing on Monday, Oct. 9, with “Out of the Past.” This film series gives you film noir classics with pre-show wine tastings featuring wines inspired by the films—all for one price! This set of Noir Nights movies is focusing on a “femme fatale” theme, so get ready for some bad broads and wicked dames! Niche proprietor Leah Jackson will be on hand to discuss the wines, which will also be available for purchase during the movie, and by the bottle as customers leave.

Jacques Tourneur’s 1947 classic “Out of the Past” stars Robert Mitchum, Kirk Douglas and the sultry Jane Greer. The story follows a private eye (Mitchum), who escapes his dangerous past to run a gas station in a small town—but his past catches up with him and he must return to the big city world of danger, corruption, double crosses, and duplicitous dames (Jane Greer).

Tickets to individual films are $10 and includes the wine tasting and collectible ticket. If you’d prefer not to see the film, you can enjoy just the wine tasting for $5. Collectible glasses are available for $10.

The pre-show tastings begin at 6:30 p.m. and the film starts at 7:30 p.m. The Kiggins Theatre is located at 1011 Main St. in downtown Vancouver. Niche Wine Bar is located in the same building at 1013 Main St. For more details, visit www.kigginstheatre.net. All seats are normally $9, except for Mondays, when all tickets are $6.
