UPCOMING EVENTS AND LECTURES

Floating Films-All is Lost
July 28, 2016
Thursday: 7:00PM-10:00PM 
Location: Balclutha

Our ever-popular "Floating Films" series returns this summer! What better way to enjoy sea-faring cinema than the deck of the Balclutha. Academy Award-nominated writer/director J.C. Chandor (Margin Call) takes the helm for this tense adventure drama about a man (Robert Redford) who must fight for survival after being shipwrecked at sea. The picture then jumps back in time by eight days, and an intertitle places us in the Indian Ocean, 1700 nautical miles from the Sunda Straits. Though the sailor tries everything he can think of to save himself, external challenges ultimately coalesce and threaten to damn him.

Ongoing exhibits

The park has a variety of ongoing exhibits that focus on the Asian American experience.

Look for the Grace Quan at the small boat dock on Hyde Street Pier, an example of a small craft that was used by Chinese immigrants to catch shrimp in San Francisco Bay.

Aboard the ship Balclutha, the "Chinatown" exhibit below deck provides an immersive experience into the living quarters of those who sailed to the Alaskan canneries.

At the park Visitor Center, 499 Jefferson Street, at Hyde Street, exhibits bring to life stories of 19th century Chinese immigration.
