Friday May 21st get ready for one trip!!!
Hey – when was the last time you were in Chinatown? We’ve put together a little guide to help you navigate your way to this foreign land and ultimately – to the Great Star Theatre.
CASTLES IN THE SKY the new film by Taylor Steele, is a visual whirlwind that follows surfers to the farthest reaches of the known surf world and beyond. Filmed in five countries over three years, the movie delves into the true heart of the locations as the surfers journey through with a sense of open-minded awe. We encourage you to get off your ass and prepare for a trip away from your usual routine, head to the distant reaches of Chinatown and prepare for a totally unique, rewarding adventure.
Making the newly reopened Great Star Theatre in Chinatown the perfect venue for Taylor Steele's new multicultural surf film.
Seemingly isolated from the San Francisco's Sunset District lies exotic Chinatown. A "magic carpet ride" to an entirely different world, where one can easily forget they are next to downtown SF, let alone America. Tasty food, drinks, and nunchucks are bonus awards for your journey to Chinatown
Now you might say- "Chinatown is too overwhelming! I can't find parking. It’s too touristy!" Well that is why we have scheduled the movie at 9pm on a Friday night! We’ve included links to MUNI/BART schedules, a map of nearby parking garages, restaurants, and hotspots that you probably haven’t heard of. We want you to get there in time to enjoy a nice meal, see an awesome movie and join us for a fun after party in North Beach at the Columbus Cafe.
