Castro Theatre – San Francisco

A Historic Landmark in San Francisco and situated in the Heart of the Castro District. When we visited San Francisco in April this year, we stayed just up the hill from this landmark. Although the whole Castro street was under construction, it still stood out as a gorgeous building!

Castro Theatre

This movie palace, with its Spanish Colonial Baroque façade was built in 1922. It has over 1400 seats, and its designer, Timothy Pflueger, also designed a few other theatres in California in that period. Unfortunately we did not go see a movie there – our time was very limited and we explored this interesting city until our legs did not want to put another step in front of the other. So we skipped on the movie!🙂

        Thank you. That theater marquee was one that I really wanted. The two across the bay in Oakland – the Fox Oakland and Paramount are stunning. I’ve still got to get the Paramount at the right time. Winter is good because the trees in front of the marquee will be bare.
