Watch a Film About Watching a Film at the Bernal Heights Outdoor Film Festival

Last night I fought my way through the velvet ropes and throngs of groupies to attend the glamorous Bernal Heights Outdoor Film Festival screening that happened on the north side of Bernal Hill.

Since there were no critics from Fox News in the attendance, the festival organizers decided to show¬†“My Grandmother,” a bizarre 1929 silent film from the Soviet Union, which was accompanied by a pitch-perfect live music performance by the Beth Custer Ensemble.

It was deeply fantastic. Here’s a little sampler of what you missed:

More screenings happen tonight on stylish Cortand Avenue beginning at 7 pm. Check the schedule for full details and enjoy.

Editor’s Note: To whoever it was that arrived at the screening in this pristine 1976 AMC Pacer X: Well played!
