Film noir: A series of film noir hosted by Jon Noe at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays at Historic Everett Theatre, 2911 Colby Ave., Everett; 425-258-6766. Tickets are $5.
- "Woman on the Run": June 20. An eyewitness to a murder runs away and is chased around San Francisco by his wife, a reporter, the cops and the murderer; with Ann Sheridan and Dennis O'Keefe (1950).
- Reel World Cinema: The theme for this late-spring series of films is "The Celluloid West -- Revisited," six award-winning westerns. The thread of these six movies is the myths about heroism and the conquest of the American West that are exposed. A potluck dinner runs from 6 to 7 p.m., followed by the film and discussion from 7 to 10 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church, 2936 Rockefeller Ave., Everett. The series runs through June 23. Call 425-259-7139 for details. Free. Descriptions are edited from the Reel World flier.
- "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid": June 7. This movie broke the mold of westerns with its comedic flair and B.J. Thomas' jaunty "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head." The Hole-in-the-Wall gang, led by Butch (Paul Newman) and enforced by Sundance (Robert Redford) is robbing trains and banks all over the territory. But when railroad baron E.H. Harriman hires a select posse to track them down, Butch, Sundance and girlfriend Etta Place (Katherine Ross) go on the lam -- all the way to Bolivia (George Roy Hill, 1969).
- "Unforgiven": June 14. This movie demonstrates revisionist western storytelling at its most profound. Movie icon Clint Eastwood directed and stars as William Munny, a reformed killer who has lost is wife and is struggling to raise their children in abject poverty on the prairie. When he hears from "the Schofield Kid" that a bounty has been placed on some cowboys in Big Whiskey, Wyo., he sets off with his friend Ned Logan (Morgan Freeman) to earn the reward money and make a better life. And along the way we meet a host of the wildest characters ever assembled -- sadistic Sheriff Little Bill, gunfighter English Bob, sleazy saloon owner Skinny Debois, yellow journalist W.W. Beauchamp and queen bee whore Strawberry Alice -- and learn the real cost of violence. With Gene Hackman and Peter O'Toole (Clint Eastwood, 1992).
- "True Grit": June 21. Leave it to the Coen brothers to top John Wayne's Oscar-winning 1969 "True Grit." When teenager Mattie Ross' father is killed by Tom Chaney, she seeks out legendary gunslinger Rooster Cogburn, a man of "true grit," to avenge the injustice. But the haggard Rooster has seen better days. So Mattie insists on accompanying him on the errand of justice. Based on Charles Portis' 1968 novel. Stars Jeff Bridges, Hailee Steinfeld, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin and Berry Pepper (Joel and Ethan Coen, 2010).
