Turning the Tide: Saving Richardson Bay (2006, 60 minutes) is a film by David Gotz about a dramatic community effort to block a 2000-home development in Richardson Bay that was to be called "Reeds Port." The film also covers the rescue and transport of the Lyford House and the story of Rose Verrall, Tiburon's "Goat Lady," who donated the valuable land which now serves as the site for the house and the Richardson Bay Audubon Center.

Paying the Price for Peace (2016, 97 minutes) is an award-winning film edited by Sausalito storyteller Susan Utell and produced and directed by Bo Boudart. Through the life and times of Air Force veteran S. Brian Willson, the film tells the story of a worldwide movement to expose the truth about the United States' addiction to war.

Sausalito Seekers (2017, 69 minutes) is the latest film project from Saul Rouda, one of the filmmakers behind the classic 1970s Sausalito waterfront story Last Free Ride. With Sausalito Seekers, Saul will take the story a little deeper, flushing out the nasty and the sublime, and touching on the existential — with help from Joe Tate, Bill Kirsch, Larry Moyer, Shel Silverstein, and a large supporting cast. This program will also feature the short film Waldo Point, along with several resurrected film portraits of the "good old days."

A Tribute to Larry Moyer will celebrate a fixture on the Sausalito waterfront for more than forty years who passed away in 2016 at the age of 92. Larry Moyer was an artist, filmmaker, photographer, raconteur, and close friend of Shel Silverstein who spent his last years living on Shel's old houseboat, Evil Eye. This special program will feature clips of interviews and performances, along with a scene from Larry's 1963 beatnik classic, The Moving Finger. Larry's good friend and fellow Sausalitan Kayla Kahn will introduce the program, and there will be time for the audience to share stories after the screening.
