Film Noir Double Feature
Windy City Double Feature Picture Show, hosted by Adam Carston and Mike Vanderbilt, is a podcast that celebrates Chicago’s rich moviegoing past by exploring historic double features that once screened in The Loop’s bustling movie district, neighborhoods, drive-ins, or suburban theaters. Each episode is a deep dive into the movies and the glorious theaters that screened them, setting the time and the place by examining local news, national trends, popular culture, and what else was playing around town. It’s like a cinematic time machine!
This month, the hosts celebrate Noirvember with a classic film noir double: Raoul Walsh’s classic White Heat (featuring James Cagney in his most explosive role) and the criminally underseen Too Late For Tears, which originally opened at McVickers Theatre in The Loop on October 28, 1949. Come for a unique screening experience, brimming with nostalgia and local history."
