About This Item

KTVU news footage from April 5 1969 featuring scenes of reporter Claud Mann interviewing impresario Enrico Banducci (1922-2007), who talks about closing down the hungry i nightclub in San Francisco's North Beach neighborhood, his vision for the club and when it will hopefully re-open again. Banducci explains: "I didn't consider myself ever a nightclub. I think that I consider this more like a theater and theaters are going in other parts of the country. And the hungry i, I don't think you can honestly say was ever a nightclub." We are told the club has been padlocked for about 2 weeks and that Banducci hopes to re-open after scouting some new acts in New York and also after taxes are done. Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.
