San Diego Museum of Art says
Film noir, with its dark imagery and emotional state, owes much of its origin to the influence of the German Expressionist movement. In this classic of the genre, adapted from the Raymond Chandler novel, Humphery Bogart plays private detective Phillip Marlowe as he follows a blackmail investigation into a tangled web of murder, gambling, and seduction.

This summer sit under the stars and enjoy a screening of the 1946 film nor The Big Sleep (not rated) directed by Howard Hawks, presented in relation to the German Expressionism exhibition on view.

Due to popular demand, the Museum's summer film series has moved to the Botanical Garden east of the Museum to accommodate more attendees. Films are free and open to the public.

Grab a blanket, bring a few friends, and be sure to arrive early for a good seat on the lawn. Bring your own picnic dinner or order from Panama 66 (kitchen open until 5:00 p.m.) Please note alcoholic beverages are allowed in Balboa Park until 8:00 p.m. Films begin at sundown.
