Last week to see cable car documentary at the Balboa
Only one more week to see a rare documentary on San Francisco’s most iconic transit mode: the cable car. â€œSan Francisco Cable Cars,â€ a documentary by local filmmaker Strephon Taylor, is playing at the adorable Balboa Theatre until next Thursday, March 30.
Taylor has made many popular historic documentaries, and this one is perfect for transit and history buffs. From SFGate:
His latest is â€œSan Francisco Cable Cars,â€ with interviews and rare photos and video documenting the advancement of cable car technology in the 1800s, the influence of Gold Rush miner Andrew Smith Hallidie and efforts to save the landmark system in the 20th century.
Catch the documentary at the Balboa (movie times here).
