Adam Bergeron's parents are awesome.
In this podcast, Adam, who today owns and operates the Balboa Theater, shares the story of a cross-country roadtrip his family took back in 1977, and how they ended up in San Francisco at a particularly important moment in cinematic history.
The family moved around quite a bit but ended up back on the East Coast, where Adam went to high school and college. He came out west with friends after graduating from Northeastern University. Then, after a brief stay in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Adam ended up back in the Bay Area. He split his time between Santa Cruz and the city before opening 12 Galaxies in the Mission back around 2002.
We recorded this podcast at the Balboa Theater in the Outer Richmond in February 2020.
