Success! Thanks for posting your review of Castro Theatre. You’ve done the world some good today.

Wow-a glorious theatre

Went to the Frameline's film festival the other night to view Baby Jane? The theatre was packed with an enthusiatic audience. The enviornment is wonderful, the decor magnificent. A thrill to watch a film there. It is great that the theatre was restored to it's true intent. Love seeing films in old theatres. The cinaplex can not hold a candle to the old beauties.

A Grand Old Lady

Saw Connie Francis here last year. It's still a grand old theater. I hope she's still around when I'm old. The only minus is the parking -- very difficult to find in the Castro/Market Street area.

The Tops!

The Castro theater is the oldest theater in California, the seats are cramped, the sound is marginal and the screen is smaller than modern ones - yet the experience of seeing ANY film at the Castro beats any other movie-going experience available! Get that popcorn with REAL butter and enjoy the experience of a movie at the Castro! I simply cannot describe how extraordinary this theater is!

not what it used to be

Hope for a management change, not what it used to be. Still a beautiful theater with lots of history. Worth a look.

Awesome for movie buffs:) Nice piece of history, worth the stop!

The theater is BEAUTIFUL, and build in the silent era (20's). Have old projector in lobby, and seats are not stadium style (just a slight incline), but you can see fine (similar setup to opera, or broadway play). There are gorgeous old murals on the walls, the old-style curtains to the left and right of the screen, and gold ornamental wall decorations. A must for any movie buff (did I say that already?:)).

Bad sound, too cold

I appreciate the caliber of films shown here, and the Peet's coffee at the snack bar. However, I went to see a showing of ""McCabe and Mrs. Miller"" in January and lost feeling in my toes it was so cold in the theater. Additionally, the sound was so poor that much of the dialogue was unintelligable.

A Grand Ol' Movie Palace

Hard to imagine a better place to see a movie. The mini-organ recital at the beginning of the show; the intelligent repertoire of films; the crowd--all these factors come together for a San Fran-only experience.
