The Friends of the Mill Valley Library presents Monday Night at the Movies. This month the Friends will present three documentary films: two that dramatize some of the former marvelous places in San Francisco that are now lost forever and a current delight that still exists for you to enjoy.
Monday, May 19th @ 7:30 PM
Sutro's: The Palace at Lands End (2011)
This full-length documentary film is about San Francisco's privately owned swimming, ice skating and museum complex, built in the late 19th century. Once the world's largest swimming pool, the building burnt down in 1966. Now you may journey back in time to revisit Sutro Baths when it was in full operation. See: The Seven Pools, Sutro Railway, Merry Way, Sutro's Cliff House, Ice Skating Rink, Egyptian Mummy Museum, Tom Thumb Exhibit, Musee Mecanique, Torture Museum, Lord's Last Supper, Ito, Giggling Ghost, 1963 & 1966 Fires, Sutro Ruins, and more. This is a trip back in time as seen and told by the people that were there. Written and directed by Tom Wyrsch.
Doors open at 7:00. This series is sponsored by The Friends of the Mill Valley Library. For more Programs and Events at the Library, see the Library Events Calendar.
