"The Crimson Kimono" to screen at Caltech

The Crimson Kimono will screen on Tuesday, January 27, at 8 p.m. in Caltech’s Ramo Auditorium. The film will be followed by a discussion moderated by KPCC’s Larry Mantle.

A pair of LAPD detectives, a murdered stripper, and a love triangle makes the quintessential mid-century L.A. The twist in director Sam Fuller’s film is its interracial relations and Little Tokyo setting.

This film is part of the Frank Capra Film Series. The Frank Capra Film Series features films in honor of the director and Caltech alumnus whose work united popular entertainment and social consciousness. The season’s series focuses on the Los Angeles experience by way of film.

Admission to these films is open to the public, free of charge, and no tickets are required.

Parking for Beckman Auditorium is located at 332 South Michigan Avenue, Pasadena (south of Del Mar Boulevard). For information, call (626) 395-4652 or, outside the Pasadena area, 1 (888) 222-5832.
