Outdoor Cinema Season

Bernal Heights Outdoor Cinema is pleased to announce its Fall 2021 season, once again inviting audiences to free screenings of locally produced films by seasoned and well-known filmmakers as well as promising new ones. For “Opening Night,” we return to South Slope Cinema, last year’s popular drive-in theater in Alemany Market Plaza. The following night finds us “Under the Stars” in BHOC’s traditional Precita Park venue. Throughout October, pop-up screenings around Bernal Hill provide a variety of opportunities to see provocative local filmmaking. The season closes back at South Slope Cinema for “Best of Bernal,” a happy occasion celebrating five award-winning films and filmmakers.
