Author Jim Van Buskirk
Armistead Maupin says about Celluloid San Francisco, ?San Francisco loves the movies just as much as the movies love San Francisco. Anyone who?s ever loved either will delight in this lively and comprehensive book. ?From the cement steps in Alta Plaza Park as featured in What's Up, Doc? to the actual nightclub of Pal Joey, San Francisco has provided a perfect backdrop for over 1500 films. This unique Cine-guide offers maps to famous and obscure movie and TV sites of classic and contemporary films, as well as to movie palaces, production companies and icons of movie making.
Jim Van Buskirk is a librarian at the San Francisco Public Library and the co-author of Gay by the Bay. Co-author Will Shank, the former chief conservator of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, writes about art and entertainment for many publications. Both authors are long-time residents of San Francisco.
