If you're a SF local, you've got a rare chance to enjoy a great bunch of films coming up with more than a little local flavor, thanks to The Balboa Theater's Reel SF series. This second annual iteration of the festival features classic flicks shot and set in San Francisco shown on the big screen; films playing include Clark Gable's San Francisco, D.O.A., and the early Woody Allen effort Take the Money and Run; there's plenty more in the screening series, which starts Sunday and goes on until Thurs. 27th.

And of course, the San Francisco Film Festival starts next Thursday -- kicking off with Peter Ho-Sum Chan's Perhaps Love and a fancy-schmancy party at The Regency Ballroom that night. We've got some more info here, but, as ever, SF360.org is on top of the Festival like that pointy, post-hole digger hat is on top of the Pope.

Finally, The Clay's got a great midnight movie selection as part of the 8 Tales series: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Either I'm reading way too many he-died-so-we-might-live Spock-and-Jesus metaphors into the timing of this weekend's selection, or somone on the programming staff has a great sense of humor.

Oh, and, if you live in San Francisco, that great blazing orb you saw in the sky yesterday is known as the sun; don't be scared.
