Late Night Cinema is an album by American instrumental hip hop duo Blue Sky Black Death. It was released on Babygrande Records in 2008.[6] It is their second proper studio album, following A Heap of Broken Images (2006).

Between recording, the duo recorded two collaboration albums with rappers Holocaust and Hell Razah, titled Blue Sky Black Death Presents: The Holocaust and Razah's Ladder, respectively. Shortly after the release of The Holocaust, Blue Sky Black Death already announced plans for their second instrumental album, and released a number of tracks from the project through MySpace and an URB Podcast.[7]

The tracks "Ghosts Among Men" and "Private Death on a Quiet Eve" were featured on the duo's 2007 mixtape Dirtnap.[8]
