Western Neighborhoods Project and The Great Highway gallery are excited to present a very special screening of "Great Highway," a film that documents and celebrates the unique cast of characters who make Ocean Beach so vibrant.
This hour-and-a-half documentary traces the history of San Francisco surfing and the beach lifestyle from past to present, exploring the changes that time reveals. This history is told by those who lived it, from the lifeguards at historic Fleishhacker Pool to surfing pioneer and wetsuit developer Jack O'Neill, to the kids growing up surfing the Bay Area today.
This movie, produced by Krista Howell and directed by Mark Gunson, has been honored at numerous film festivals, and seeing it in the former Cliff House Restaurant overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Great Highway is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Krista will introduce the film and also be available for a Q&A session after the screening.
Join us on Friday, October 14th for an incredible evening at The Museum at The Cliff, now in its final week of community programs before it closes forever. Doors open at 6:00pm and attendees are invited to enjoy refreshments while perusing our special exhibition, Naiad Cove, until the screening begins around 6:30pm.
Tickets are $15 (but additional donations are appreciated!)
