“We first reported on the film about a year ago when we learned that Hanson was developing a movie based on the late legendary surfer Jay Moriarty and that Sean Penn was considering the Hesson role. According to Variety, the story will center on Moriarty’s “quest to ride the iconic Northern California break known as Mavericks, where winter swells bring in treacherous waves the size of five-story buildings.”
O. K. then.
Penn would play “Rick ‘Frosty’ Hesson, an ex-lifeguard, champion swimmer and mentor to the tragic Moriarty.”
That’s pretty much all the detail that’s out there right now. They’re still just talking about it.

And here’s the theatre without the flag, as seen during the filming of Academy Award-winning Milk
What’s nice about the Castro is that it doesn’t give you all those annoying ads, the way they do at the Metreon and such. Maybe that’s why the big screen at this neighborhood theater is the second busiest in the land (coming second only to the one showing Bolt at the El Capitan in L.A.)

The film is highly thought of, with a very high 92% positive score on the Rotten Tomatoes Tomatomater.
If you go, you can see all your friends as extras. And the theater itself was practically a co-star:

Carole Migden’s antiwar message is proving irksome to some in San Francisco these days. Can you imagine? Senator Migden, first runner-up in the Bay Area’s recent District 3 election (that means she came in second place, contrary to what you’ve been told, dear reader), still carries on with her antiwar message.
And now Street View shows it seems she has support of Google as well. Oh noes!
