The best San Francisco movie theaters

San Francisco has appeared in more than 4,000 movies and, recently, seems to have been completely destroyed in every one. But visitors and residents will note that the city—and several of its historic movie theaters—still stands. Grande dames like the Castro Theatre have been lovingly restored and maintained, and smaller venues such as the fog-enshrouded Balboa in the Richmond District still cling to the bygone era of fresh popcorn and noir glamour. Speaking of noir, the city that gave us Dashiell Hammett's Sam Spade is home to the annual Noir City film festival at the Castro, dedicated to screening lost gems and pre-code features. The long list of film festivals on the calendar of San Francisco events also includes such high profile showcases as SF IndieFest and the San Francisco International Film Festival.
