See these films: Tight Spot + Beyond a Reasonable Doubt @ Arts Emerson at the Paramount

This week's most satisfying cinematic experience might be watching a classic film noir in the vintage, rococo splendor of the Paramount Center. ArtsEmerson will screen little-known B-movie auteur Phil Karlson's Tight Spot (1955; 7 pm), with Ginger Rogers as a mob moll who doesn't dance but does sing for the prosecution at her boss's trial. It's paired with Fritz Lang's sour farewell to Hollywood filmmaking, Beyond A Reasonable Doubt (1956; 9 pm), in which Joan Fontaine plays the fiancée of a man (Dana Andrews) who frames himself for murder in order to discredit capital punishment. That's Saturday, June 11 at 559 Washington St, Boston | $10; $7.50 seniors; $5 students | 617.824.8400 or
