Bored By Movies in the Park? Try “Moby Dick” on a Boat
I haven’t been to an actual movie theater since I saw “Toy Story 3,” which was way back in June. I have, however, seen movies in the park and in bed on my iPhone (thanks to the awesome new-ish Netflix app). Let’s face it: Movies are pretty bad-ass wherever you watch them (though FREE park flicks are infinitely easier on the wallet than $10 matinees at the Metreon).
Tonight, though, is especially bad-ass, as the San Francisco Maritime National Park Association is screening “Moby Dick” in a very appropriate venue — the Ferryboat Eureka. Have you ever seen a movie on a boat? I can safely say I haven’t and I’ll gladly fork over the $5 to do so. Plus, hunky Gregory Peck on the big screen? That’s definitely a treat in itself.
The website says “refreshments” will be available for purchase, but if I were you I’d fill on up the old flask. That’ll help with the fun factor AND the hypothermic weather situation.Ferryboat Screening of “Moby Dick” at the Hyde Street Pier Wednesday, September 22, 8pm Hyde St. @ Jefferson St. [Fisherman’s Wharf] $5
