Loved the show. I also love the old charm of the theater but it could definitely use a facelift in the bathroom. If you choose to park 2 blocks away you will be faced with walking through a pretty sad situation. Lots of homeless folks...More

This is an older theatre and a neighborhood that needs help, but it is a classic. Four of us went to White Christmas. The seats were comfortable, the sight lines clear and the accoustics let us enjoy the performance. Being asked to go downstairs to...More

The area where this is located had seen better days. We were advised not to walk to it and so we Ubered there. Once there it was busy enough that we felt safe enough but always uneasy. The theater is old and could do with...More

A nice place to visit. We saw a show (Cabaret) but the building itself was as much a pleasure. Good views from everywhere, affordable prices (especially for San Francisco) and very easy to get to. It's a few paces off Market and 6th Street, a...More
