Sundown Cinema at the Presidio

Sundown Cinema is back for its fifth season! This year, the free outdoor movie series will feature seven films in seven parks across San Francisco. While all Sundown Cinema movie nights are free and open to the public, current and new SF Parks Alliance members have exclusive access to members-only seating!
