Many commuters choose to ride the ferry because of the relative peace and quiet on board. Unlike BART, Muni, or even the cable cars, the ferry offers passengers a chance to contemplate the beauty of our Bay and enjoy the panoramic views while being alone in a crowd. What other form of public transportation can make such a claim? It’s rather like watching a silent movie.
We address this subject now because our City just finished hosting another colossal movie event, the San Francisco Silent Film Festival (SFSFF).
Ferry riders are reminded to save an important date on the Eve of the next Holiday Season.
On Saturday, December 3, 2022 San Francisco Silent Film Festival will present A Day of Silents at the Castro Theatre with six silent-film programs, all with live musical accompaniment The complete program will be announced in October when All-Day Passes go on sale. Individual tickets will be available soon after.
SFSFF is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the public about silent film as an art form and as a culturally valuable historical record.
