Vogue Theater

The  Vogue Theater is a historic single screen cinema located in Pacific Heights.  Featuring:  New releases, National Live Theater from London and International Film Society
We try to keep the latest movies listed here  – double check on their site in case they have added more to the schedule!

Get a front row seat to contemporary Italian culture at New Italian Cinema 2017, bringing Italy’s newest directors, veteran actors and filmmakers to the Bay Area!

For five days enjoy a dynamic film festival showcasing the best new films from Italy, the country that has won the highest number of Foreign Language Academy Awards. A seat at New Italian Cinema offers a unique window into Italy’s contemporary life and rich traditions, and a chance to brush up on your language skills at the same time! Highlights include:

  • Opening Night at the Castro featuring Gianfranco Cabiddu’s The Stuff of Dreams, winner of both the 2017 Italian Golden Globe for Best Film and the David di Donatello for Best Adapted Screenplay. Fashioned after Shakespeare’s The Tempest, the delightful comedy centers on a fateful shipwreck that casts Camorra criminals and a handful of itinerant actors onto a windswept island. Attend the film and After Party- featuring Italian wines and antipasti!- at the San Francisco Italian Athletic Club.
  • Closing Night at the Vogue Theatre featuring Nicolás Carreras’ The Duel of Wine. It’s a perfect pairing for the Bay Area’s love of wine- see the comic portrait of a charismatic sommelier who takes a mighty fall from grace when he temporarily loses his palate, and enjoy a glass of wine or purchase tickets to the Italian Wine Tasting After Party at Osteria Restaurant.
  • Castro– Winner of the Festival dei Popoli 2016 Best Italian Documentary Award, Paolo Civati’s documentary is set in the San Giovanni quarter of Rome, where families squat in an old school they occupy illegally, sharing the decaying physical space along with life’s precious moments.
  • Franca: Chaos & Creation– Francesco Carrozzini’s poignant documentary is a tribute to his late mother, Franca Sozzani, the maverick editor in chief of Italian Vogue. Attend the film only or the film and Prosecco Reception

For the complete schedule and ticket information, visit www.newitaliancinema.org

 

Highlights of the Festival include:

  • THE STUFF OF DREAMS — Opening Night Film at the Castro Theatre is Gianfranco Cabiddu’s delightful, beautifully lensed tale of a troupe of actors and a group of criminals shipwrecked together on an island near Sardinia. Fashioned after Shakespeare’s The Tempest, it won the 2017 Italian Golden Globe for Best Film and the 2017 David di Donatello for Best Adapted Screenplay Castro Theatre. Castro Theatre, November 8 at 6:30pm. Join us for the film only or the film and After Party at the San Francisco Italian Athletic Club in North Beach.
  • FRANCA: CHAOS & CREATION — Francesco Carrozzini’s poignant documentary is a tribute to his late mother, Franca Sozzani, who was the maverick editor in chief of Italian Vogue. Castro Theatre, November 8 at 3:45pm. Join us for the film only or the film and a Prosecco Reception.
  • FORTUNATA — Sergio Castellitto’s drama features powerhouse actress Jasmine Trinca as a feisty, self-employed hairdresser in Rome, who tenaciously pursues her dream of opening her own salon. Winner of the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, Best Actress Award, Un Certain Regard. Castro Theatre, November 8 at 9:10pm.
  • THE DUEL OF WINE — Closing Night Film at the Vogue Theatre is Nicolás Carreras’ comic portrait of charismatic sommelier, Charlie Arturaola, who takes a mighty fall from grace when he temporarily loses his palate. Charlie tries to claw his way back into the world of competitive wine tasting as a ghost-taster for a handsome but buffoonish friend. A gleeful, stinging satire of the obsessive world of drinking and dining contests. Closing Night Film includes a glass of wine! Vogue Theatre, November 12 at 6:15pm. Film only or film and Italian Wine Tasting After Party at the Osteria Restaurant. Preceded by the presentation of the City of Florence award to the most compelling narrative by an up-and-coming director.
  • INDIVISIBILE — Edoardo De Angelis tale of Daisy and Viola, conjoined twins with heavenly singing voices, who are on the verge of discovering their freedom and sexuality. They can’t wait to turn 18 and follow their dreams, rather than continue their current existence as a lucrative religious sideshow attraction. Winner, Best Script and Best Supporting Actress, 2017 David di Donatello Awards. Vogue Theatre, November 11 at 6:15pm.
  • BOZZETTO NON TROPPO — Marco Bonfanti’s portrait of world-renowned Italian animator Bruno Bozzetto. Humble and eccentric in the best way imaginable, the utterly charming Bozzetto—best known for the 1976 Fantasia-inspired Allegro non troppo—is the amiable host on this tour of his own vibrant world. Vogue Theatre, November 11 at 2:00pm.
  • CASTRO — Paolo Civati’s award winning documentary is set in the San Giovanni quarter of Rome, where families squat in an old school that they occupy illegally. They share the decaying physical space they have named “Castro,” and also life’s precious moments: celebrating birthdays, watching each other’s children, and falling in love. Winner of the Festival dei Popoli 2016 Best Italian Documentary Award. Vogue Theatre, November 9 at 2:15pm.

May sidewalk sale map

OutdoorMarket2016

We are developing a map of our neighborhood shopping district  – in the meantime please use this map from our May Sidewalk Sale to help you navigate our seven blocks of retail stores, hair salons, mani-pedi businesses.

Sacramento Street is a San Francisco neighborhood commercial district located between Pacific and Presidio Heights.  Boutiques, salons, personal services, specialty stores and restaurants line 6 blocks. The historic Presidio Carnegie public library and a small independent theater, The Vogue add to the neighborhood charm. Locally owned businesses are intermingled with residential buildings creating a unique SF experience. Great for brunch, lunch and dinner. One mile from the Fillmore District, The Presidio and Highway 1. Bus lines 1,2,3,43.

A gem of a neighborhood

If you are looking for original and unique boutiques in SF, you must stop by Sacramento St.  and explore our shops.  That’s our specialty.  Stroll between Broderick and Spruce Streets to find fashion, home furnishings, antiques and lots for moms, babies and kids!
