Photos: Clive Owen, Nicole Kidman Filming Hemingway & Gellhorn in Chinatown

Nicole Kidman is spotted for a fleeting moment as she prepares for her next scene.

For a sneak Scenes of the City we crashed the set of Hemingway & Gellhorn with a few glimpes of stars Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman today in SF's Chinatown. If you're quick you can still catch them on Grant St. and Jackson St.

The Biggest Thing To Ever Happen in Maiden Lane: Keith Urban's Free Performance March 26th

Hold on to your britches, San Francisco. Country megastar Keith Urban is playing a FREE show in tiny Maiden Lane later this month, and we suspect hundreds of closet country fans will be coming out of the woodwork to catch a glimpse.

Although he's most likely in town to be near his sweetheart Nicole Kidman as she films her Ernest Hemingway HBO movie, that's not stopping him from breaking out the acoustic guitar for a super-intimate solo performance for the downtown crowd on Saturday, March 26. It'll be short and sweet ––just 30 minutes––and it starts right after lunch at 1 pm (if you need Union Square lunch ideas, we've got 'em).

'Hedwig' Director John Cameron Mitchell Takes a Detour into the 'Rabbit Hole'

The stars of Rabbit Hole, Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart, play mourning parents eight months removed from the death of their son, each so consumed by individual grief that neither is attuned to the other’s emotional and physical needs.
It’s the kind of domestic melodrama Hollywood studios rarely make anymore, and perhaps the last man you’d expect to direct it is John Cameron Mitchell, best known for 2001’s Hedwig and the Angry Inch, his seminal comedy about a transsexual punk rocker, and the 2006 bohemians-in-heat drama Shortbus.

10 for '10: The Year in Movies

With 2010 about to fade into our rearview, it's time to pay our respects to a year that produced its share of very good movies, but precious few great ones. It was a year dominated by memorable performances in supporting roles – Christian Bale as a crack-addicted burnout in The Fighter, John Hawkes as a rough-and-tumble hillbilly in Winter's Bone, Jacki Weaver as an insidious matriarch in the overlooked Australian import Animal Kingdom – and the visual bravura of Inception, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and TRON: Legacy.
