Looking for something to do tonight? SFMOMA has a screening that features the streets of San Francisco. Bonus points from us if you spot Muni lines in the “filmic journey.”

Thank you, SFist.


Streets of San Francisco: Filmic Journeys

Tanya Zimbardo, assistant curator of media arts, SFMOMA

Phyllis Wattis Theater
7:00 p.m.

Throughout the 75th anniversary exhibitions, artists take up San Francisco’s cityscapes as subject and muse. This program of experimental films and videos from the late 1950s to the present offers evocative records of individual experiences of street life. These psychogeographic tours look at North Beach’s Broadway strip and the window reflections of a beat poet protagonist. We examine the Mission’s storefronts for evidence of larger neighborhood shifts, from gentrification in the 1980s to the current neighborhood use of the former site of a 19th-century amusement park.

$5 general; free for SFMOMA members or with museum admission (requires a free ticket, which can be picked up in the Haas Atrium).
