Remembering Playland
The Balboa Theatre in San Francisco is proud to be hosting multiple shows of Tom Wyrsch's newest film, REMEMBERING PLAYLAND AT THE BEACH. The theater is just a dozen blocks from the site of the beloved amusement park.

Upcoming screenings are on Saturday-Sunday March 27 and  March 28 at 12:00pm; Saturday and Sunday, April 3 and 4 at 12 noon. Final weekend.

A full length documentary about San Francisco's famous 10-acre seaside amusement park, Playland at the Beach. Located next to Ocean Beach, it was torn down in 1972 to make way for a condominium development. Gone now for more than 3 decades, it remains one of the city's lost treasures. Go back in time to see Laffing Sal, the Fun House, the Carousel, the Big Dipper, the Diving Bell, Dark Mystery, Limbo, Fun-tier Town, and much, much more, all through the eyes of the  people that were there.  The first and only documentary ever made about Playland.   Written & Directed by Tom Wyrsch.  Running time: 62 minutes plus related short subjects.  Don't miss it this time!
