SF in SF - Science Fiction, San Francisco
A Perfect Fit!
We host monthly author events and films at the Variety Screening Room at 582 Market Street @2nd & Montgomery, SF 94104. Since 2005 we've been featuring authors and films that focus on the science fiction, fantasy, horror, and related literary genres. Previous guests include Cory Doctorow, Rudy Rucker, Patrick Rothfuss, Gail Carriger, Lev Grossman, Steven Gould, Robert J. Sawyer, Kage Baker, Mary Robinette Kowal, Carol Emshwiller, Kim Stanley Robinson, Laurie King, Ray Garton, William F. Nolan, Seanan McGuire, Roz Kaveney, John Shirley, Pat Murphy, Ellen Klages, Brian & Wendy Froud, and too many more to list here.
Authors read a selection from their work, and Q & A after the reading is moderated by author Terry Bisson. Books are for sale courtesy of Borderlands Books, and booksigning and schmoozing in the lounge closes out each evening. A great way to meet and chat with your favourite authors in a relaxed atmosphere.
Film nights feature free popcorn, and we always raffle off some great schwag! Come see some old favourites - occasionally we'll toss a new film (like Amazing Spiderman, in 3-D) into the mix. Most films are first come, first seated. Courtesy of BBC Home Entertainment, and teaming up with I09.com, we also now host a Doctor Who series, the last Saturday of each month; we mix up viewing the new episodes followed by a classic episode, with lots of fun stuff (Sonic Screwdrivers at the bar!).
We often feature special invitations to other events around the Bay Area, and give away tickets to shows and films as well.
A suggested $5-$10 per person at the door, and our cash bar, all raises money for Variety Children's Charity of Northern California! We've raised over $50,000 for the kids of our community!
All events take place at:

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
