From our neighbors, the San Francisco Giants….
The San Francisco Giants are bringing the first ever non-game day public movie night to Oracle Park this summer! Please join us on Saturday, July 13th as we show Bohemian Rhapsody (Sing-Along) on Oracle Park’s brand new, 4K scoreboard (the largest video board in California – 45% larger than San Francisco’s biggest movie theater). On the 34th anniversary of Queen’s historic Live Aid performance, guests will get exclusive access to sit on the Field, enjoy a pre-show performance by The Killer Queens (the world’s only, and San Francisco’s own, all-female tribute to Queen), and sing along to Queen’s hits while watching a special cut of the film Bohemian Rhapsody (2018, PG-13). Prizes will be handed out to select individuals wearing their best Freddie Mercury costumes. A portion of all ticket sales will be donated to our partners at the San Francisco AIDS Foundation. We look forward to seeing you at the ballpark!https://www.mlb.com/giants/ballpark/events/movie-night
Buy tickets today – only $15 for basic general admission!

There is a pretty ho-hum agenda for this Tuesday’s Transbay Joint Powers Authority Citizens Advisory Committee. Note that this CAC is a separate CAC from he one that meets under the auspices of the former Redevelopment Agency and is known as just Transbay Citizens Advisory Committee that meets at YBCA at 701 Mission normally.
