Detroit Film Theatre: Port of Shadows: 3 p.m.
Port of Shadows is one of the most haunting and dreamlike tales in French cinema history. In a lonely flophouse at the edge of Le Havre, outsiders converge: Jean Gabin’s hungry, broke, pugnacious, probably AWOL soldier; mysterious teenager Michèle Morgan in iconic beret and plastic raincoat; and shopkeeper Michel Simon (L’Atalante). Ultimately the choice for Gabin comes down to hopping a ship or the continuing pursuit of a sudden love. For a detailed description, visit www.dia.org/dft/schedule.asp. Tickets: $7.50; DIA members, seniors and students, $6.50.
