Sutro Museum & Ice Rink in Movie


Sutro Museum & Ice Rink in Movie

07/03/17 - posted by Holt Macon

Recently I saw a movie called "The Lineup" which included fantastic scenes from San Francisco around 1958.
It included some wonderful scenes, at least 5 minutes long, of the Sutro Museum and ice skating rink. I think it burned down in the early or mid 60s so these scenes are very special. I don't know if any other videos exist of this museum and ice rink but it was special to me to see some good videos about it before I was even born.

I wonder if there are other old Hollywood movies that have scenes of the Cliff House, Play Land or Outside Lands but if you get a chance do take a look at "The Lineup" about 3/4 of the way through for the scenes of the Sutro Museum and Ice Rink.
