It’s the time of year for yelling at the screen at the Castro Theater as 
shocking memories flicker by and crowd-sourced details fill the air.  The 
audience is the soundtrack for Rick Prelinger’s new compendium of archival film 
footage of the Bay Area, now in its 12th year.

This year features North Beach clubs and nightlife, New-Deal labor graphics, 
early BART footage, a scooters’ rights demonstration, dunes in the Sunset, 
Barbra Streisand and Ryan O’Neal shooting WHAT’S UP DOC? on location in the 
Richmond District, more footage of the mysterious Running Man in Chinatown and 
on Nob Hill, Bay Area activism, Latino families dancing on Ocean Beach, and 
ever so much more.

"Lost Landscapes of San Francisco 12," Rick Prelinger, The Castro Theater, San 
Francisco, 6:30pm, Tuesday & Wednesday December 12 & 13.  The show starts 
promptly at 7:30pm.
