Description

The Tenderloin Museum brings Robert Zagone’s Drugs in the Tenderloin to Another Hole in the Head Film Festival for a two-night only special engagement.

Drugs in the Tenderloin is a documentary shot guerilla style, directed by Robert Zagone in 1966; it captures the Tenderloin as it transformed into a center for young queers and drug users.The film is a chance to catch a rare glimpse of the Tenderloin’s past, and to hear first hand from the people who lived there. The film was rediscovered by the Tenderloin Museum and played a series of sold-out shows at the Tenderloin Museum and the Roxie Theater in 2015 & 2016. Join the Tenderloin Museum on Nov 6th & Nov 9th for the film festival debut of this memorable lost film.
