HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BALBOA!!
Gary Meyer and crew deserve a big birthday greeting for pulling together their annual bash to celebrate the Balboa Theater. With a tip of the hat to 1926, they'll be screening The Cat and the Canary with Laura LaPlante accompanied live by Dave Miotke, selected short subjects, a live vaudeville show featuring magician James Hamilton and singer Linda Kosut, the Balboa Premiere of Double Features, a silent short film shot at the theater, and birthday cake by Diane Boate, who each year creates a themed and delicious work of art to eat. Doors open at 6:30PM; show starts at 7:00PM. Jack Tillmany will be signing and selling copies of his books on the theatres of San Francisco and Oakland. Read more about the festivities here.
