A Shaping San Francisco Public Talk
FEB 29, 2012 WED at 7:30PM
Check out Shaping San Francisco’s current Public TALKS and other public programming at ShapingSF.org.
The sixth in the series of Rick Prelinger’s annual San Francisco history screenings, Lost Landscapes presents rare and generally unseen archival footage of a vanished San Francisco (1910s-1970s) in a feature-length program of historical intervention and carnivalesque celebration. It includes footage of San Francisco’s cemeteries just before their removal, unique drive-thru footage of the Old Produce Market (now Golden Gateway) in the late 1940s, cruising the newly-built Embarcadero Freeway, grungy back streets in North Beach, the sandswept Sunset District in the 1930s, and newly-rediscovered Cinemascope footage of Playland, the Sky Tram and San Francisco scenes, all in Kodachrome. This year Rick’s presenting a show composed of almost all-new material. This is interactive cinema: YOU are the soundtrack. Please come prepared to shout out your identifications, ask questions about what’s on the screen, and share your thoughts with fellow audience members.
