Starring San Francisco

Future Salon. March 3, 2015 at the North Beach Public Library. Mark your calendars now for a fun evening featuring Jim Van Buskirk, co-author of “Celluloid San Francisco: The Film Lover’s Guide to Bay Area Movie Locations” as he presents: “Starring San Francisco” A talk with slides and film clips.

San Francisco has appeared in hundreds of movies and television series, some famous, others obscure, from Eric von Stroheim’s 1924 Greed to Dirty Harry to Zodiac. Jim Van Buskirk, co-author of Celluloid San Francisco: The Film Lover’s Guide to Bay Area Movie Locations (and former SFPL librarian) uses film stills and clips to demonstrate the Bay Area’s rich cinematic history. Among the many familiar (or not-so-familiar scenes) are the Alta Plaza Park steps being chipped in What’s Up, Doc?, the futuristic skyline in Towering Inferno and Bicentennial Man and the geographically inconsistent chase sequence in Bullitt.

This Salon is co-sponsored by the San Francisco Public Library.
