Silent Film Festival
Movie enthusiasts have a ton to look forward to with all the excellent film fests that hit our city every year, and the SF Silent Film Fest is certainly in the top echelon. This time around, however, their lineup is extra special. Silent film aficionados can look forward to a super rare screening of Abel Gance's 1927 holy grail masterpiece, Napoléon.
Not only does the Silent Film Festival give aficionados the opportunity to view rare silent movies from the 1920s, but the restored 35mm prints are presented as they were meant to be seen: in a grand old theater (in this case, the Castro), accompanied by live musicians.
