Tickets are now available <> for 
the eleventh year of “Lost Landscapes of San Francisco,“ the annual archival 
film program that celebrates San Francisco’s past.  This year for two nights 
there are new scenes of San Franciscans working, playing, marching, and 
partying during the Great Depression; unseen footage of Seals Stadium and the 
Cow Palace in the late 1930s; the reconstruction of Market Street and 
Embarcadero Plaza in the 1970s; rare footage of southeastern San Francisco and 
the Hunters Point drydock; the 1975 Gay Freedom Day parade; a 1940s-era ode to 
our fog; many more newly discovered gems; and greatest hits from past programs.

As always, the audience makes the soundtrack at the glorious Castro Theatre.  
Come prepared to shout out places, people and events; to ask questions; and to 
engage in spirited repartee with fellow audience members.
