Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall star in this classic adaptation of Raymond Chandler’s hardboiled detective story. Private eye Philip Marlow is hired on what seems like a simple case of blackmail, but quickly finds himself embroiled in the seedy Los Angeles underworld of gambling, narcotics, pornography and murder. With star-making performances, slick direction from Howard Hawkes and a peerless screenplay adapted by William Faulkner, this film noir love story remains one of the true classics of the Hollywood Golden Era.
This special festive screening is free for ICA Members and all ticket-holders will receive an ICA goody bag! As well as mulled wine and mince pies on arrival, we’re also offering Gift Membership for just £30 (normally £40).
