LA County Museum hosts New York noir-neorealism series

Barry Fitzgerald stars in “The Naked City” by director Jules Dassin.

Mark your calendars: a great film noir series starts Friday at the Los Angeles County Museum.

The Naked City: New York Noir and Neorealism series will screen 10 films shot on location in and around New York during the period (1945-53) that photographer and filmmaker Stanley Kubrick spent documenting the city.

SaysSays the museum: “These films reveal a restless metropolis where you’re either on your way up, on your way down, or just laying low. It’s a city where you can never really disappear, not matter how dark the back alleys or how crowded the boulevards may be.”

“The Naked City” 7:30 p.m. Feb. 8
“Kiss of Death” 9:15 p.m. Feb. 8
