A talk with film clips by Jim Van Buskirk
The Golden Gate Bridge has probably starred in more movies than any other American architectural icon. From Stranded (1935) to The Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011), the iconic span appears in wide range of films including Dark Passage, Superman, Star Trek, Time After Time, It Came from Beneath the Sea, Love Bug, A View to a Kill, Monsters vs. Aliens, Interview with a Vampire, and X-Men. Jim Van Buskirk, author of Celluloid San Francisco (and former SFPL librarian), offers a clip-filled program of hilariously horrifying depictions of the Bay Area’s beloved bridge.
