we formed a circle, but we weren't wearing shoes.

Call this my last good deed of the year.
I'm delighted to announce the next screening of Lost Landscapes of San Francisco (Year 7) on Tuesday, January 8 at Internet Archive in San Francisco. PLACE AND TIME: 300 Funston Avenue (corner Clement), San Francisco. Tuesday, January 8. Doors open 6:30. Show 7:30. DIRECTIONS to Internet Archive: http://archive.org/about/contact.php#directions ADMISSION: $5 or 5 books for Internet Archive's book scanning project. First shown at the Castro Theatre on December 11, this year's show consists of 75% new material plus a few sequences repeated by popular demand. You'll see an eclectic montage of rediscovered and rarely-seen film clips showing life, landscapes, labor and leisure in a vanished San Francisco as captured by amateurs, newsreel cameramen and studio filmmakers. New sequences in this high-definition program include the Japanese-American community in the Western Addition before redevelopment; shipwrecks off the Northern shoreline; 1930s demonstrations against the shipment of scrap metal to Japan; family films from the Richmond, Sunset and Excelsior Districts; rediscovered films of San Francisco transit; and newly discovered, never-shown documentary footage of Market Street, the waterfront and Rincon Hill. Much of the show has been scanned from Kodachrome and original 35mm material. As usual, this year's Internet Archive screening is an interactive experience: audience members will BE the soundtrack, identifying places and events, asking questions, loudly discussing San Francisco's part and future as the film unreels.
