San Francisco Museum and Historical Society presents The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of Exhibit at the Old Mint

The San Francisco Museum and Historical Society presents The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of Exhibit, an exhibition highlighting the movies and the filmmakers that have made our city one of the world’s unique film capitals at the Old Mint on June 16–24, 11:00 am – 4:00 pm.

A collection of paintings by Kim Novak titled Life Is But a Dream, a series of very personal looks at the world around her, will be part of the exhibition. This will be the first time Novak has shown her work anywhere.

People everywhere know of the City by the Bay, even if they have never been here. For many of them their image of the city is what they have seen in the movies. Visitors to the exhibition will come away with a greater understanding of why San Francisco has been an irresistible magnet for filmmakers and moviegoers.

The exhibition paints a picture of the amazing breadth of the Bay Area’s film history and filmmaking community, using educational text panels, photographs, posters, vintage cameras, movie props and other objects. Slide shows, lectures, book signings, oral history recordings, screenings and multimedia will also be part of the exhibition.
