The Dalhousie Art Gallery Wednesday noir series concludes this Wednesday with the 1955 Robert-Aldrich-directed Mickey Spillane Mike Hammer mystery, Kiss Me Deadly, a “jagged, baroque, nightmarish picture captures the paranoid mood of the McCarthy era, the Cold War and nuclear angst.”

Out of town this week, the King’s Theatre in Annapolis Royal has a Tuesday screening of the Zhang Yimou picture Coming Home. In Wolfville, Fundy Cinema concludes its Wednesday documentary series with Gayby Baby, and this Sunday has The Brand New Testament, which Carbon Arc screened in March.
