I saw films all over town the past few weeks. I visited the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts screening room for the first time last Saturday when I watched Mister Scarface and Chained Heat.
I Knew It Was You: Rediscovering John Cazale and Dog Day Afternoon screened at the Vogue. Director Richard Shepard answered questions about his documentary on John Cazale. He was interviewed by SF Chronicle movie critic Ruthe Stein.
I Knew It Was You was followed by Dog Day Afternoon. Sadly, it was projected from a DVD.
I watched Tokyo! at the Landmark Opera Plaza and Tokyo Sonata at the Landmark Bridge.
Dogs of Chinatown screened at the 4-Star.
Made in USA, Vigilante, Raw Force and Lady Terminator played at the Castro.
Wild Boys of the Road and Gabriel Over the White House were part of PFA's program titled From Riches to Rags: Hollywood and the New Deal. The four film program explored how Hollywood filmmakers responded to FDR’s New Deal.
We Work Again, The Road Is Open Again and Hell-Bent for Election were short films that preceded the feature films in From Riches to Rags: Hollywood and the New Deal.
Mister Scarface, Chained Heat, Vigilante, Raw Force and Lady Terminator (along with Escape from New York which I did not watch this weekend) were part of the Alamo Drafthouse's Rolling Roadshow Tour. Austin's famed movie house periodically takes some of its film prints on tour. On this trip, they stopped in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle.
Vigilante, Raw Force, Lady Terminator and Escape from New York were co-presented by Midnites for Maniacs.
