Hollywood's not the only place in California that's filled with film history. The Bay Area has also provided the setting for many famous movies throughout the years, and now you can visit these film locations as you ride comfortably throughout the city in a luxury motor coach. San Francisco Movie Tours takes you to locations all over the city made famous by both current blockbuster and classic San Francisco movies. The 3-hour tour includes clips from more than 50 of the most famous movies made in the city, played at the location where they were filmed by the knowledgeable and entertaining actor/comedian guides. Your group will stop for one break at the world-class City Hall, and another at the quintessential San Francisco movie location -- Fort Point -- where Kim Novak leaps into the water and Jimmy Stewart saves her in Hitchcock's Vertigo. Bring your camera, because there'll be a ton of photo ops along the way at famous landmarks and movie locations. In addition to Vertigo, other movie locations you'll see include Dirty Harry, Mrs. Doubtfire, Princess Diaries, Milk and many more. Learn More

Saturday Sept. 22 @ 6:45pm: Decoding Deepak
Gotham Chopra (USA, 2012, 74mins)
Gotham Chopra in Person
Spiritual icon, Deepak Chopra, is the focus of this doc, an audience favorite at the SXSW Film Festival. Made by Gotham Chopra, it separates the man from the myth with a raw honesty only a son can have. But what starts as decoding, quickly becomes an allegory of a world trying to make sense of itself.
