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 PassageSupermanStar TrekTime After TimeIt Came from Beneath the SeaLove BugA View to a KillMonsters vs. AliensInterview 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.
