Castro Theatre information
The city's grandest movie palace opened 1922. The Spanish-Moorish exterior yields to mishmash styles inside, from Italianate to Oriental. Ask nicely and staff may let you peak, or come for the nightly cult or classic films, or one of the many film festivals here – check calendars online. At evening shows, arrive early to hear the organist play before the curtain rises. For the best photos of the blue-and-pink neon-lit marquis, shoot the downhill side from across the street.
