Coming Up in the Next Few Weeks…
Stanley Kubrick: The Exhibition
As explained on the Contemporary Jewish Museum website:
“Stanley Kubrick exerted complete artistic control over his projects; in doing so, he reconceived the genres in which he worked. The exhibition covers the breadth of Kubrick’s achievements, beginning with his photographs for LOOK magazine taken in the 1940s, and continuing with his directorial achievements of the 1950s through the 1990s. His films are represented through annotated scripts, production photography, lenses and cameras, set models, costumes, and props. In addition, the exhibition explores Napoleon and Aryan Papers, two projects that Kubrick never completed, and the technological advances developed by Kubrick and his team.”
The exhibit is now open and will run through October 30, 2016.
Museum hours are daily from 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM with two exceptions: CJM is closed on Wednesdays and stays open late on Thursdays until 8:00 PM.
Contemporary Jewish Museum – 736 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 94103
Admission to the Stanley Kubrick exhibit is included in a general admission ticket to the museum. Adults are $15, students and seniors are $13, and children 18 and younger get in free.
For discounted tickets, visit the museum on Thursdays after 5 pm, when ticket prices drop to $8.
New Spots Opening…
Tartine Manufactory, which opened last month after much anticipation, is a “multi-faceted culinary playground” that “offers coffee, breakfast, lunch, dinner, plus a bar, a bakery, and an ice cream shop,” according to a recent profile by Eater.
Zagat also checked out the new space, writing:
“San Francisco’s legendary bakery expands into spacious, multi-purpose Mission quarters that also house a coffee counter, ice cream parlor, and midpriced Californian cafe and bar serving wine, beer and low-proof cocktails. With soaring ceilings and a modern, industrial-chic look (including stoneware from neighboring Heath Ceramics), this production kitchen and food hall-style destination elevates local cuisine to a new level.”
Currently, Tartine Manufactory is open from 7:00 AM – 5:00 PM on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. On Saturdays and Sundays, hours change to 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM.
595 Alabama Street, San Francisco, California 94110
Salads are priced at $8-9 while warm sandwiches are more expensive at $12-16.
If you’re in the mood for something sweet, pick up an item from the pastry case, which start at just $3.50, or an afternoon dessert for $6.50.
