Fun to be starting to make lists of all the people making work and having discussions about San Francisco's past and future. See the description of this amazing sounding event put on by Rick Prelinger below:
This year's LOST LANDSCAPES brings together familiar and unseen archival
film clips showing San Francisco as it was and is no more. Blanketing the
20th-century city from the Bay to Ocean Beach and the Presidio to Bayview,
this screening includes San Franciscans at work and play; early hippies in
the Haight; a highly privileged walk on the unfinished Golden Gate Bridge;
newly-discovered images of Playland and the waterfront; families living
and playing in their neighborhoods; detail-rich streetscapes of the late
1960s; peace rallies in Golden Gate Park; 1930s color images of a busy
Market Street; a selected reprise of greatest hits from years 1-8; and
much, much more.
As usual, you'll be the soundtrack and the star at the glorious Castro.
Audience members are asked to speak out -- to identify places and events,
ask questions, share their thoughts, and create an unruly interactive
symphony of speculation about the city we've lost and the city we'd like
to live in.
The event will take place on Thursday, December 4, at 7:30 pm (doors open
at 6:30). The Castro Theatre is at 429 Castro Street at Market, San
