Castro Street (1966) is a visual nonstory documentary film which inspired by Satie[2] uses the sounds and sights of a city street—in this case, Castro Street near the Standard Oil Refinery in Richmond, California complete with diesel trains and gas plants[3]—to convey the street's own mood and feel. There is no dialogue in this non-narrative experimental film. It was directed by Bruce Baillie.

In 1992, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". The Academy Film Archive preserved Castro Street in 2000.[4]
