8855_winterland

Static shot looking down the sidewalk underneath the marquis of the vacant Winterland Arena at Post and Steiner in San Francisco. Footage is from sometime between 1979 when the venue closed, and 1985 when it was torn down. Newspapers and debris blow in the breeze on the sidewalk. Slow panning shot of the marquis sign reading Winterland attached to the outside of the building. The sign too looks a bit neglected. A smaller sign reading “Bill Graham’s Winterland” is covered in dirt. Static shot of the front entrance to the venue with the box office boarded up. Someone has sprayed painted “The End” on the board.
