Rick Prelinger presents Lost Landscapes of San Francisco, 8

SEE EVENT DETAILS
at Castro Theater (see times)
For the eighth time, Rick Prelinger 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, this screening includes newly-discovered images of Playland and Sutro Baths; the waterfront; families living and playing in their neighborhoods; detail-rich streetscapes of the late 1960s; the 1968 San Francisco State strike; Army and family life in the Presidio; buses, planes, trolleys and trains; a selected reprise of greatest hits from years 1-7; and much, much more. As usual, you'll be the star at the glorious Castro -- audience members are asked 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.

Rick Prelinger, an archivist, writer, filmmaker and teacher, has made LOST LANDSCAPES OF SAN FRANCISCO for eight years; LOST LANDSCAPES OF DETROIT for three; and recently completed NO MORE ROAD TRIPS?, a feature-length dream ride across the U.S. made completely from home movies. He runs a large archives of amateur film and home movies in San Francisco and teaches at UC Santa Cruz. With Megan Prelinger, he co-founded Prelinger Library, an experimental library and workspace open to the public in downtown San Francisco.

Though advanced tickets for Long Now's Lost Landscapes of San Francisco show is sold out for 12/17/13 (there will be limited tickets at the door), we are pleased to announce that Rick Prelinger will be hosting a second night of Lost Landscapes on 12/18/13 as a fundraiser for the Internet Archive, who's scanning operations were seriously damaged in a recent fire.
