About San Francisco

One of the most technology-focused cities in the US, San Francisco is known for its global influences, trendy food and nightlife scene, and its many historical landmarks. The city is home to one of the world’s largest and oldest Chinatown districts outside of Asia. The missions, which were founded by Spanish colonists in a trail from Texas up the West Coast in the 18th century, have been lovingly preserved in the shadow of the city’s modern skyline and suburban neighborhoods.

Those interested in cultural activities will find a wealth of performance venues and museums, including installments of period and contemporary art alongside quirky offerings like the San Francisco Cable Car Museum and Madame Tussaud’s. The city is full of municipal parks – some large enough to take hours to traverse – and public art installments.

Although a few hours removed from Hollywood, a film screening in San Francisco is an exciting and memorable experience. With a thriving arts scene, the city is the perfect place for a unique screening featuring the best of the city’s food and beverage variety.
