Packed Roxie Theater Honors Carrie Fisher

San Francisco's venerable Mission District movie house was full last night. I was part of the packed Roxie Theater audience that came out to celebrate and remember Carrie Fisher on January 1, 2017.

The Roxie's great staff showed "Postcards from the Edge" on the big screen. Before that, we were treated to a selection of Fisher's TV appearances. The highlight was Fisher skewering George Lucas at the American Film Institute gala in his honor a few years back.

Not sure why, I again forgot that early in the film and for many scenes, her fictional alter ego played by Meryl Streep, wears a queer pink triangle pinned on her denim jacket. I should remember that.

Here's my video from last night:
