A full length documentary about San Francisco's famous 10-acre seaside amusement park, Playland at the Beach. Located next to Ocean Beach, it was torn down in 1972 to make way for a condominium development. Gone now for more than 3 decades, it remains one of the city's lost treasures. Includes Laffing Sal, the Fun House, the Carousel, the Big Dipper, the Diving Bell, Dark Mystery, Limbo, Fun-tier Town, and much, much more, all through the eyes of the people that were there.Written by
Great documentary. One hour in length. All about the history and love of the "Coney Island" of the West. Lots of great footage and photos. Much of the footage and photos were never shown in public before. Many, many interviews and memories of Playland-at-the-Beach. Also plenty of the history and construction leading up to what became Playland-at-the-Beach in 1928. Fabulously well done pic. If you can, find a showing in a theater and see it on a big screen. But if it is not playing anywhere near you, purchase a DVD for yourself, your parents and your grandparents!!!!
