The Castro Theatre

The nearly 90-year-old Castro Theatre, with its hot pink neon sign like a beacon to the colorful Castro neighborhood, is one of the few remaining 1920s movie palaces still in operation today—and an emblem of the city's celebrated diversity. The theater, San Francisco’s 100th registered historic landmark, was built in 1922. The Wurlitzer organ and 1937 Art Deco chandeliers punctuate the theater’s opulence. Today, the Castro Theatre welcomes movie premiers, an endless array of film festivals and one-of-a-kind film happenings (sing-a-longs).
