Lights! Camera! Norton! Three Emperor Norton Films
The Emperor's Bridge Campaign presents three films that fondly depict the story of the San Francisco eccentric and visionary, Emperor Norton. The films -- from 1936, 1956 and 1966 -- include a 9-minute 35mm theatrical short that may be the earliest dramatic portrayal of the Emperor on film. All of the films are rarely seen on the big screen. The Emperor's Bridge Campaign is the San Francisco nonprofit that works to research and document the life and legacy of Emperor Norton. After the first 50 tickets sold, 50% of all proceeds from this screening will benefit the Campaign. Members of The Emperor's Bridge Campaign (Emissaries of the Empire) can get free tickets at the box office on the day of the show. This event is also free or discounted for Roxie members.
