North Beach Week: Hyde Street Pier Movie Night, Underwater Exploration, More

By Mike Pinzuti - Published on July 14, 2016.

It's a good weekend to take to the seas (so to speak) around North Beach.

Tonight is the first of three summer Thursdays where you can enjoy the Bay backdrop and take in a movie aboard the 1886 Balclutha docked at Hyde Street Pier. Tonight's "floating film" is the 1933 movie Tugboat Annie, directed by SF native Mervyn LeRoy. Open seating begins at 6:30pm and tickets, which can be purchased on location, start at $5.

On Saturday you can take a peek beneath the ocean surface courtesy of the Exploratorium's live feed with the Exploration Vessel Nautilus, which is exploring the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary in Southern California. You can speak directly with the vessel's onboard scientists and educators to learn about the mission's high-resolution sonar mapping of the underwater ridges, seamounts, and basins. The feed begins at 1:30pm and entrance is free with museum admission. 

On Sunday at 7pm, take a break from the sea by catching a pre-release screening of Kevin Smith’s new horror comedy Yoga Hosers, which opens nationally on September 2nd. The film, which stats Natasha Lyonne and Johnny Depp, is a spin-off of Smith's 2014 horror film Tusk; there will be a Q&A with Smith following the screening. It all goes down at Cobb's Comedy Club (915 Columbus Ave.) and tickets are available online.


Also in the news and staying on the oceanic theme, SFist posted an overview of all the hidden gems in the Jackson Square area this week, including the numerous area galleries, the Sydney G. Walton Square and the Old Ship Saloon (298 Pacific Ave.).
