Peep San Francisco’s Past Through Film

Curious to see what the streets of San Francisco looked like between the ‘30s and ‘60s? Then you’re in luck. Tonight the San Francisco Museum and Historical Society is hosting an event, San Francisco Top to Bottom: The City Seen by Hollywood and Home Movie Makers, in which viewers can peep scenes from the Embarcadero and Chinatown to Nob Hill and the Marina thanks to combined outtakes of feature films made during eras past. These cut and pasted projections, courtesy of Getty Images and Internet Archive, will be viewable to the public tonight. And while no advanced reservations are necessary, we suggest you come early to snag a seat.
When: Tuesday, June 14, 7 p.m.
Where: Kanbar Hall At The Jewish Community Center of San Francisco, 3200 California Street (at Presidio Avenue); 415-292-1200.
