They show old movies. Host shows, meet and greets and sing-a-longs. Was in town on business - walked through the Castro and they were hosting Yvonne Elliman and Ted Neely for the 50th anniversary of Jesus Christ Superstar! Show was amazing. The Q and A session was awesome. Architecture is great.

A lovingly preserved movie palace where lots of special events take place. And there are also just the movies. Always fun to come here sometimes an organ performance. Very comfortable seating.

I’ve been here a hundred times; I love all the old architecture and too many of these beauties have gone to history and romantic novels! For me it was the scratch and sniff night for SMELL O RAMA that got me hooked on this theater and the marvelous neighborhood!

My wife and I spend Christmas 2019 in San Francisco. The Castro Theatre and our our time in the Castro area was a definite highlight. We saw a viewing of "It's a Wonderful Life" just before Christmas and then a sing-a-long of "The Sound of Music" on boxing day. The theatre is gorgeous and well kept in its original style (see photos). You really feel like you've stepped back into its history as soon as you enter the theatre. An organist performs about 10 minutes before showtime on a hovering riser that can't be missed. Come early so you can check out the memorabilia on the walls and take in the beauty of this historical landmark. The only negative about our experience was that the popcorn was stale and flavorless. Boo! Note: If your movie has an intermission or it's a double feature (which many are) you'll have about 15 mins. to motor down to a nearby bar for an in-between movie drink. I recommend Harvey's. All-in-all the Castro Theatre was a highlight of our stay in San Francisco and a must do.
