Stunning, sleek and spacey architecture will have you gawking before you’ve even entered BAMPFA’s doors on Center Street in Berkeley; the building’s exterior itself is a massive and much-talked about piece of art. Once inside, you can score a seat in the Barbro Osher Theater for a film screening or explore expansive galleries that make up this 3-level focal point for contemporary art, movies and mingling. Free admission each first Thursday of every month.
