Francis Ford Coppola's "Apocalypse Now"

  • Aug 10, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • Castro Theatre


Join us this Saturday August 10 when we watch Francis Ford Coppola's epic Vietman War film, Apocalypse Now. Loosely adapting Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, this film's story begins with "a military assassin (Martin Sheen) being ordered up river to find a renegade colonel (Marlon Brando) and terminate him with extreme prejudice. Coppola paints the war as a hallucinatory obscenity, boasting some of the most mesmerizingly powerful set-pieces in film history. Frederic Forrest, Robert Duvall and Dennis Hopper co-star; Oscar-winning cinematography is by Vittorio Storaro."

More information, directions, and trailers:

Admission is: $11.00 Adults, $8.50 Seniors and Children.

7:30 Meet at the Castro Theatre (429 Castro St. at Market) to purchase tickets, then walk around the corner to Starbucks [masked]th St.) for coffee and conversation.

8:10 Return to the Castro Theatre to take our seats. The films start at 8:20.

11:00 After the film we will meet at Cafe Flor (2298 Market at 16th St.) for conversation and refreshments.

    A powerful, phantasmagorical retelling of Conrad's mythic novella, "Heart of Darkness, " this film was stunningly photographed and acted. I am grateful to have finally seen the film on a big screen, and I enjoyed our spirited conversation at Cafe Flor afterwards.

    This movie has lost none of it's power, as a matter of fact, gained power in telling the "reality" of the horrors of war. Sadly, even though it was made about 30 years ago, it is still "Relevant" and up to date concerning the conflict and madness of our present day world.
