EC San Francisco Destinations: Castro Theatre

The Castro Theatre is one of the oldest movie theaters in San Francisco. The theater was built in 1922, with a beautiful mixture of Spanish colonial, Chinese, and Italian architecture. The inside of the theater is decorated with murals, an ornate stage curtain and a massive Wurlitzer organ which is played before most movies.

Nowadays, the theater plays classic American movies, and visitors can travel back in time to enjoy the traditional American movie experience with a unique San Francisco twist.

If you want to see a movie at the Castro Theatre, check the Castro schedule online, or look for the next Night at the Movies on our EC San Francisco Facebook page!

The theater is in the heart of San Francisco’s famous Castro District. It’s only a few minutes away on Muni. After the movie, there are plenty of shops, restaurants and bars to enjoy if you and your friends want to stay out late.
