From 6-7pm and again from 9-10pm, you’ll get to see a 4K super-high-resolution scan of the legendary pre-quake A Trip Down Market Street short film (filmed April 1906 just days before the earthquake and fire) made from the best existing material, showing detail that no audience has seen in over one hundred years.
