“Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” Matinee
50 Reservoir Rd

Something to chew on: What could be more traditional than a young woman bringing her fiancé home to meet the parents? The Drayton household exudes traditional white, progressive thinking in a comfortable setting in San Francisco. While 1967’s summer of love bursts out elsewhere in town, love’s challenge here is that the daughter’s fiancé turns out to be a black man. The contrast and conflict is treated with humor and warmth, and revisits the ongoing conversation about mixed race and generational differences.
