Out-Of-Town Lowriders Cruise Jefferson in Fisherman’s Wharf – Ignorant of the Efforts of Any Danish Urban PlannersTuesday, January 13th, 2015
Here they come to “activate” our “urban scene,” an endless parade of lowriders:
I don’t think these people are drinking as many cappuccinos as those Danish urban planners expected:
Wheels akimbo, as is the style:
Uh, do locals visit the Fish Wharf more now, after all the changes? IDK.
I don’t think so.
But I hope all the Scandinavians at least got Business Class and frequent flyer’s club miles when we paid them to come over to “fix” the Wharf, which to me, seems exactly the same kind of place as before…
The poor devils in the rush line out in front of the Castro Theatre this evening had to face fierce winds while waiting to see if they’d be let in to see La Mission. A sell-out crowd enjoyed the movie as well as bacon bon bons and PopChips at the after party in la mision.
Click to expand. It sort of looks like the 1950’s, right?
A good time was had by all.
The 52nd Annual San Francisco International Film Festival, with 170 films from 62 countries, is kicking off tonight in the Castro with La Mission, directed by Peter Bratt and starring Benjamin Bratt. There’ll be an after party in the Mission as well – expect to see a few lowriders as a part of the celebration.
429 Castro Street (near Market)
Kick off the 52nd San Francisco International Film Festival with a West Coast premiere screening, special guests and a festive celebration with live entertainment, dancing, hors d’oeuvres, drinks and a complimentary gift bag. Stars Benjamin Bratt, Erika Alexander, Jeremy Ray Valdez, Talisa Soto-Bratt and director Peter Bratt in person. Peter Bratt’s powerful and moving film is an ardent love letter to the vibrancy and daily struggles that take place in the streets of San Francisco’s Mission District. Full of affection for its characters, La Mission is a redemptive story of one man’s struggle to unlearn a lifetime of destructive habits.
Castro Theatre, Bruno’s/El Capitan Theatre
Celebrate Opening Night Mission style at two historic venues, the iconic Bruno’s and an adjoining outdoor setting on the site of the former El Capitan theater, with vintage lowriders from the film. Treat yourself to cool cocktails and international culinary delights while dancing to the Latin beats of salsa and rumba. You must be 21+ to attend the party.
FILM & PARTY members $70, general $85 Includes film and party, complimentary drinks, entertainment and hors d’oeuvres.
VIP FILM & PARTY $135 Includes reserved seating at the film, admission to the exclusive VIP Lounge, and complimentary drinks and hors d’oeuvres.
