Architectural History Film Festival – January 2014

Join the NCCSAH for our first Architectural History Film Festival on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 9 AM – 1 PM at the Historic Vogue Theater in San Francisco. Built in 1912, the Vogue celebrated its hundredth birthday last year – it is one of the few single screen neighborhood theaters remaining in the city.

The Vogue Theater is located at 3290 Sacramento Street at Presidio Avenue and it is served by the 1, 3 and 43 Muni lines.

The triple bill includes ”A 1906 Trip Down Market Street” narrated by Rick Laubscher, President of the Market Street Railway. Mr. Laubscher will be attending to talk about the film and answer questions. We will then show the two rarely seen, award-winning documentaries about Chicago’s great architects Louis Sullivan and Daniel Burnham who had national influence. The Sullivan film is very accomplished, and was a big hit at an SAH meeting several years ago.

Louis Sullivan Guaranty Building

DVDs of the three films will be available for sale at the theater. Admission $15 for members, $ 20 for non-members at the door. Cash only please.
