Captured Aural Phantasy Theater (CAPT) presents its Night of Noir Show at the historic El Cid for one night only – Sunday, October 6th. In their newest live retro variety show, Captured Aural Phantasy Theater blows a kiss to their adopted hometown, Los Angeles, by blending hard-boiled culture and the absurd in an evening of performances inspired by LA-centered noir movies, pulp fiction and – of course – the brutal crime comic books of the 40’s. The show features their unique multi-media, old radio show-style performances of vintage noir comics plus projected art, live jazz/cabaret music, and other thrilling acts.
Back in the in the late 40’s, it was crime comic books that dominated the industry. The Night of Noir Show presents LA-centered crime comics in all their gritty glory. The show also is the culminating event of a noir-themed scavenger hunt, the Week of Noir, that Captured Aural Phantasy Theater is presenting the week before the show.
