Koret Auditorium

Members at the Partner and Enthusiast levels are invited to attend a Cinemascope screening of The Last Black Man in San Francisco in celebration of the exhibition Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 1963–1983. Join us for one of two special screenings at noon or 3 pm. Co-writer and lead-star, Jimmie Fails, will be on-site for an exclusive Q&A after the noon screening. Reservations are required to attend either screening. Call or email Member Services to reserve your spot.

About the Movie

The Last Black Man in San Francisco is based on Jimmie’s life and the gentrification of San Francisco. A wistful odyssey populated by skaters, squatters, street preachers, playwrights, and other locals on the margins, the film is a poignant and sweeping story of hometowns and how they’re made—and kept alive—by the people who love them. View the film trailer.
