Jane’s Declaration of Independence
The earliest surviving theatrical film shot in the Presidio, this long lost 1915 two-reeler (approx. 20 minutes) was recently rediscovered. This world premiere screening of a new restoration by the San Francisco Silent Film Festival, featuring live musical accompaniment, will take place in the beautifully renovated Presidio Theatre, re-opening to the public in the fall after a 24-year absence. The evening’s program includes an introduction to the Presidio’s rich early film history and background on the film’s restoration. Presented by the Presidio Trust in association with the San Francisco Silent Film Festival and the Presidio Theatre.
