The Long Now Foundation's Seminars About Long-term Thinking presents:

Rick Prelinger, Lost Landscapes of San Francisco, 12

Our annual Lost Landscapes of San Francisco show with Rick Prelinger will run for 2 nights this year and a portion of the proceeds are going directly to support the Prelinger Library!

The twelfth year of Lost Landscapes of San Francisco, the annual archival film program that celebrates San Franciscos past and looks towards its future.

Combining favorites from past years with this year’s footage discoveries, this feature-length program shows San Francisco's neighborhoods, infrastructures, celebrations and people from the early 20th century through the 01970s.

New sequences this year include North Beach clubs and nightlife, colorful 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 much, much more.

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

The Wednesday showing will also feature a presentation on the Prelinger Library, San Francisco's famed experimental research library that supports artists, historians, community members, and researchers of all kinds. On both evenings you can purchase $50 Prelinger Library Patron Tickets, which includes reserved seating in the theater.

Founded by Megan & Rick Prelinger in 02004, the Library contains over 60,000 books, periodicals, maps and ephemeral print items available for research and reuse. Prelinger Library is a community-supported resource open to the public, keeping regular hours in the South of Market neighborhood.

Doors open at 6:30pm

Long Now's Seminars are curated and hosted by Stewart Brand. These monthly talks were started in 02003 to build a compelling body of ideas about long-term thinking.
