The Diner

The Diner Movie Poster

The St. Francis Fountain is one of San Francisco's oldest diners.

In this documentary shot on 16mm black and white film, the establishment's clientele, young and old, reflect upon the nostalgia associated with American diners. A man remembers his childhood spent frequenting the St. Francis and how he feels about the new clientele, and the younger customers articulate the appeal of going to this historic diner.
