One of San Francisco's finest and best-loved repertory cinemas, this movie palace was built in 1922. It became a registered landmark 55 years later, affording it proper protection. These days it's a dream space of classical murals and rare old film posters, with ceilings that shimmer with gold and films introduced to the strains of a Mighty Wurlitzer organ.
Hosts gay and camp screenings. On Christmas Eve, the SF Gay Men's Chorus sing 'Home for the Holidays'.
