Event Details

Rick Prelinger’s incredible collection of home movies and forgotten films show a San Francisco that tickles our memories and reminds us of what once was.

Come for the participatory screening, where you get to help identify lost scenes and see a San Francisco you can usually barely imagine.

A word from Rick Perlinger:

This year I’m presenting a show composed of almost all-new material, much of it in HD. Most of the footage in this program has not been shown before. 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.
