Kennington Noir is a monthly film noir event at The Cinema Museum in London. The screenings cast a spotlight on some of the less canonical titles released during the classic Hollywood period, as well as films currently unavailable on DVD in the UK.



The next screening, on Wednesday 10 May, is Phil Karlson’s gritty heist thriller Kansas City Confidential (1952).

Kennington Noir is co-programmed and hosted by Dr. Kulraj Phullar, who recently completed his PhD on good girls and goodness in classic film noir at King’s College London.
