Extras Style: Tim Burton Takes North Beach Back to the 60s

Yesterday, SFist tipped everyone off about Tim Burton filming Walter Keane bio-pic “Big Eyes” in North Beach, near the intersection of Grant and Green. While yesterday’s shoot reportedly was set in the late-50s, today they were shooting for the mid-60s, as evidenced by the VWs, Continentals, and blend of funky and Jackie O-type costumes.

Here are a handful of shots, mostly of the actors and the fabulous cars. Scroll clear down for a few shots of Burton, including one with leading man Christoph Waltz. (His lead lady, Amy Adams, may have been sitting near him inside the Cafe Trieste where they were filming. Oh, and, apologies, but the photo of Helena Bonham Carter photo-bombing Burton and a background actor didn’t really turn out.)
