Don’t Miss Out on Cinema Supper Club at the Legion of Honor Museum

Wednesday, July 16th, 2008

Well, it was quite a spectacle last week at the opening of Cinema Supper Club, From the Golden Gate to the Silver Screen, in the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco. Thursday night’s kickoff of 50-year-old Vertigo featured the living relatives of Alfred Hitchcock, a live recreation of the Carlotta portrait featured in the movie, a pre-show talk from the authors of Footsteps in the Fog, and people walking around in period dress from 50 years ago.

The whole idea is that you can start noshing at 6:00 P.M. and also have time to be able to check out Women Impressionists and the huge Chihulys before the film starts at 8:00 P.M. See the schedule below and get your tickets here.

Authors Jeff Kroft and Aaron Levanthal talk about Hitchcock movies filmed in Northern California. Click to expand:
