A year ago, we lost one of the greatest comedians to ever hit the big screen. This year, it feels like the best way to mourn is to celebrate the incredible life of one of the best among local friends and fellow fans in Williams’ own home city.
SoMa StrEat Food in San Francisco will screen five of Williams’ best films this Saturday, August 15 beginning at noon.
12 p.m.: Jumanji (1995)
2 p.m.: Good Will Hunting (1997)
4:30 p.m.: Dead Poet’s Society (1989)
7 p.m.: The Birdcage (1996)
9:30 p.m.: Mrs. Doubtfire (1993)
The event will play the films on the 10+ large televisions situated around the park, but will switch to a big screen showing of the final two films after it gets dark.
Free popcorn will be available at the bar, and as always, plenty of food trucks will be on site.
If you’d like to attend, be sure to RSVP to the Facebook event invite — the first 200 attendees will get in for free ($5 cover after that).
