‘Sweet Smell of Success’

Why: Between the annual festivals at SAM and SIFF, Seattle is regularly slathered in film noir—but that hasn’t kept folks from packing into Night & Day, the new series hosted by young noir enthusiast Brandon Ryan at Central Cinema. Tonight’s film is an absolute killer: 1957’s Sweet Smell of Success, in which an amoral press agent (Tony Curtis) grovels exquisitely before the unchecked evil of a Manhattan gossip columnist (Burt Lancaster). Bodies are bartered, lives are ruined, and you’ll feel like you need a shower afterward. It’s brilliant. (Central Cinema, 1411 21st Ave, central-cinema.com, 7 and 9:30 pm, $6 adv/$8 DOS)
