San Francisco: San Francisco Museum of Modern Art


SFMOMA is preparing to close for three years for a major expansion.  A closing show is running until the very end.  "The Clock" is a 24-hour movie that shows on the screen scenes for movies depicting clocks verifying the current time.  So at 3:10, it's the "3:10 to Yuma" and at noon it simply must be Gary Cooper getting ready for a show down in "High Noon" (I'm not sure because I wasn't in the theatre at that hour--does anyone out there know?).  The screening room is set up with comfortable couches that hold three people each.  There is usually a line, but it usually moves quickly and gets less crowded in late afternoon.  Once in the theater, an usher will find you a seat.  I watched for more than an hour and would have liked to stay a lot longer.  Mark your calendar.  The museum's last day is June 2.  As a final farewell, "The Clock" will do a 24-hour-plus stint, beginning at 10 a.m. on June 1 and concluding at 5:45 p.m. on June 2.  Don't miss it!
