“Neon enhances a cityscape, keeps a city’s spirits up in the wee small hours and in all kind of weather, casts color on drab pavements, bounces crazy reflections off dark windows, and draws the eye upward to where you might not otherwise be looking.”
—Tom Downs, from the Foreword of San Francisco Neon
The authors of San Francisco Neon: Survivors and Lost Icons, Al Barna and Randall Ann Homan have created a wonderful homage to neon in film noir.
On Saturday, December 12th, 2015 they will present an evening on Neon and Noir at San Francisco’s Balboa Theater.
In addition to The Stolen Moment on the big screen there will be other films about neon in San Francisco and the terrific film noir Dark Passage with Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart heating up the screen and San Francisco.
