Such lovely memories of this wonderful theater in the late ‘60s/early '70s – on many a foggy night I made the long trek from UC Berkeley to the Outer Sunset to see amazing films (at the time, a long bus ride over the Bay Bridge, then almost the length of the N Judah line on those beautiful old PCC trolley cars). I vividly remember seeing “Let It Be”, the 1969 documentary about the Beatles’ last recording sessions and their impromptu concert on top of Apple Studios; the news of their break-up was still fresh, and there many teary eyes among the audience as we left the Surf to head back out into the misty night. At any moment, waiting for that N Judah car, it seemed Humphrey Bogart could step out of the fog, straight from “Dark Passage” or “The Maltese Falcon”, those classic San Francisco films.
