Curl up with a cozy blanket on squashy bean bags and lawn chairs while nomming on comfort food from local food trucks. Enjoy libations from their full bar, or sip on hot chocolate and pour-over coffee on those chilly San Francisco evenings.
Films are presented on The Cut’s massive 23-foot outdoor LED screen, and each guest gets a pair of premium headphones for HiFi audio. General admission tickets are $16.75 plus fees for a deck lounge chair seat with a Mexican blanket, and $13.75 plus fees for seniors and students. They also offer a premium package for $26.75 plus fees, which gets you a 4′ x 5′ Big Joe Original beanbag chair on an outdoor rug, a Mexican blanket, and a small popcorn. If a screening is canceled due to rain, ticket buyers will receive credit for a future showing.
The Crossing at East Cut
The Crossing at East Cut is a giant new community space at 200 Folsom Street in SF’s Transbay neighborhood. It kicked off last year with a beer garden, food truck park, soccer fields, fitness spaces, and a giant ground mural on the block between Howard, Main, Folsom, and Beale Streets.
The 3.5 acre site is due to be turned into housing in mid-2023 under the Office of Community Development and Infrastructure. But until then, the Office hast trusted East Cut Landing Partners (ECLP) to spearhead a variety of activities in the area. The project is part of Mayor Breed’s Downtown Recovery Plan, which aims to speed up the downtown area’s economic recovery and bring more traffic to local businesses.
