The Castro dubbed San Francisco´s historic movie palace is located at 429 Castro Street (at Market), San Francisco, CA 94114. Telephone: (415) 621-6120.

The Castro Theatre was built in 1922 by pioneer San Francisco theatre entrepreneurs, the Nasser brothers, who started with a nickelodeon in 1908 in the Castro neighborhood.

The Castro was built at a cost of $300,000. The Castro's designer was Timothy L. Pflueger (1894-1946) who went on to become a famous Bay Area architect. Read more...

Sing-a-Long movies at the Castro Theatre give you an alternative way to enjoy campy old musicals.

And the crowd participates to varying degrees, with some in full costume and others just along for the ride. Read more...

The Castro Theatre is truly an acre of seats in a palace of dreams!
