Updated (April 18, 2014): updated details.

Friday, April 25, 7 pm, in the lounge of the Etta building at 1285 Sutter Street (at Van Ness) in San Francisco.

Sunday, April 27, 3 pm, Marin Headlands Center for the Arts at 944 Simmonds Road in Sausalito (part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area).

As part of our 90th-anniversary celebrations, the Sierra Club San Francisco Bay Chapter is presenting two unique screenings of “Rebels With A Cause: How a Battle Over Land Changed the American Landscape Forever”, a stunningly beautiful documentary about the battle that saved a key portion of the Marin coast from development and led to the creation of the Point Reyes National Seashore and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. These events will be fundraisers for the Sierra Club Bay Chapter.

Speaking at both events will be writer/producer/director Nancy Kelly and Huey Johnson, one of the activists featured in the film.

The San Francisco event will also include activist Amy Meyer, co-chair of People for a Golden Gate National Recreation Area and author of New Guar­dians of the Golden Gate: How America Got a Great National Park. Suggested donation: $10.

In addition to the screening of part of the film, the Marin event will feature a hike, led by National Park Service ranger Roxi Farwell, with a stop at the part of the Headlands that would have been Marin­cello, a failed gated-community development (a story­line featured in the film). A reception will follow the hike. $75 per person, $50 for students and seniors.
