Legends of music and movies unite as Jane's Addiction rocker Perry Farrell joins acclaimed director Gus Van Sant for a double screening of films by both artists. Van Sant crafted such contemporary classics as Good Will Hunting and Milk, but he first made a name for himself with the 1989 indie hit Drugstore Cowboy, which also put a young Matt Dillon on the map. It'll show alongside Farrell's cult comedy-nightmare Gift, for which the quirky singer-songwriter paused from belting out alternative hits like "Been Caught Stealing" to pair live footage of his band with hallucinatory fictional vignettes scored by the likes of Sly and the Family Stone. It's a rare opportunity to not only see two obscure underground cinematic gems on the big screen, but discuss them with their makers, who will engage in an audience talk-back in between films.

Maestro Nicola Luisotti, San Francisco Opera’s music director and a master of the Italian repertoire, conducts Giacomo Puccini’s most beloved opera. This heartwarming story of starving artists falling in and out of love in 19th-century Paris is a seamless mix of romantic passion, poignant tragedy and high-spirited fun. The outstanding cast is headed by superstar Romanian soprano Angela Gheorghiu as the ill-fated Mimì. In behind-the-scenes clips, Luisotti talks about working in San Francisco and his vision as a conductor. Recorded in the fall of 2008 at the War Memorial Opera House in San Francisco. Sung in Italian with English subtitles. Running time: 123 min. One 15-minute intermission.
