To mark 50 years of the fine film institute, the Cinematheque is serving up a cornucopia of specialty programming and events this summer.

Located in downtown Vancouver and founded in 1972, the institute and media education centre is devoted to understanding the art and history of cinema and the impact of moving images and screen-based media in our lives.

This August’s anniversary showcase includes film noir classics such as Nightmare Alley, Thieves’ Highway, Sunset Boulevard, Force of Evil, The Flame, I Wake Up Screaming, Touch of Evil and The Big Sleep.

Below, readers can enter to win two pairs of tickets to a set of film noir screenings of their choice, plus two tickets to our 50th Anniversary Film Noir Party on Aug. 19.
