Wine and beer from local winemakers and brewers will be poured, and music performances will be of the youthful and local variety. A pie baking contest will be the climax of the afternoon.

This film represents Hugh Grant’s first big bid at Hollywood stardom, on the heels of the success of Four Weddings and a Funeral. But he stumbled twice: first with this mundane comedy filmed on location in the Bay Area, then by being arrested after soliciting a prostitute near downtown Hollywood, the week before the film opened. For the third year, come and watch free movies that Mayor Newsom has personally selected as his favorite films made in and/or about San Francisco . Movies will be screened every Sunday evening from August 1 thru 29 at The Cannery’s outdoor courtyard. Open seating begins at 7:30 p.m. and show-time is 8 p.m. We’re not sure if Newsom actually appears at this event, so come for the movie, not for the hair.
