Please join DOCOMOMO NOCA at a movie night to celebrate a mid-century modern gem in San Jose!

Put on your best Mad Men/circa 1960s attire and join us for dinner and a movie at the Bay Area’s first Cinerama Dome theatre, one of the last few remaining in the U.S.

Meet us for dinner at 5 PM at the Flames Restaurant, located at 449 South Winchester Blvd., one of the best preserved examples of the Bob’s Big Boy prototype that architects Armet & Davis created for Bob Wian in the late 1950s.
