Whoopi Goldberg plays a Reno lounge singer who hides out as a nun in San Francisco when her villainous boyfriend (Harvey Keitel) goes gunning for her.
For the third year, come and watch free movies that Mayor Newsom has personally selected as his favorite films made in and/or about San Francisco. Movies will be screened every Sunday evening from August 1 thru 29 at The Cannery’s outdoor courtyard. Open seating begins at 7:30 p.m. and show-time is 8 p.m. We’re not sure if Newsom actually appears at this event, so come for the movie, not for the hair.

Ever a had neighbor from hell? Pump up your paranoia with this outlandish if mildly enjoyable thriller starring Melanie Griffith and Matthew Modine as San Francisco yuppies-cum-landlords who rent out an apartment in their Pacific Heights house to mild-mannered Michael Keaton in order to make the mortgage payment. What seems like a happy arrangement all around turns very very very bad
Sunday, August 8, Joy Luck Club
