Floating Films-Tugboat Annie
July 14, 2016
Thursday: 7:30PM-10:30PM 
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. Marie Dressler plays the title character, tugboat captain Annie Brennan, in this 1933 Hollywood box office hit. Her husband Terry (Wallace Beery) is a lazy, bragging drunk. Robert Young plays their son Alec, who has big ambitions and winds up as captain of a fancy ocean liner. The ocean liner's owner is Red Severn (Willard Robertson), whose daughter Pat (Maureen O'Sullivan) is the object of Alec's longings. Young tries to get his mother to leave his father and join him on the ocean liner, but she refuses out of love for her husband and her tugboat.
 
Floating Films-All is Lost
July 28, 2016
Thursday: 7:30PM-10:30PM 
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.
 
Floating Films-Moby Dick (1956)
August 11, 2016
Thursday: 7:30PM-10:30PM 
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. John Huston's 1956 Moby Dick remains admirably faithful to its source. "Call me Ishmael" declares itinerant whaler Richard Basehart as the opening credits fade. Capt. Ahab (Gregory Peck) has a vendetta against Moby Dick, the great white whale responsible for taking his leg.

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.
