The San Francisco Film Society and New People announced that they will be opening the San Francisco Film Society - New People Cinema in San Francisco, California on September 22, 2011. The new theater will enable the Film Society to offer its exhibition, education, and filmmaker services programs and events daily throughout the year, a first in the organization's 54 year history.
The 143-seat theater will be located in the New People building at 1746 Post Street, near Webster Street, in Japantown. They plan to offer audiences a mix of independent, international (including Japanese Cinema), and documentary fare, as well as hosting the San Francisco International Film Festival. It will feature analog and digital equipment and a THX-certified sound system.
