Submitted by the Event Organizer
The city has turned the blighted dead end of McCoppin St., abutting the Octavia freeway off ramp, into a dynamic community space.
The new McCoppin Plaza is one of three new open spaces under the South of Market (SoMa) West Improvement Projects designed to enhance the neighborhood and improve the functionality and flow of Octavia Boulevard with pedestrian and transportation safety features.

People in Plazas’s Film Fest of Shorts is this Thursday, August 21st, 7 – 10 pm in McCoppin Hub Plaza.
Featuring: Bay Area filmmakers as well as the best the internet has to offer. In this changing landscape of film and distribution, filmmakers have started making and posting short films on Youtube and Vimeo, some of which go practically unseen. This event is to highlight some of these fantastic pieces. The Bay Area filmmakers will be in attendance to discuss their work and free popcorn will be handed out.
Movie Night at McCoppin Plaza will be curated by writer, radio personality and movie buff Veronica Dolgink.
