In 1922 the now iconic Castro Theatre was built and in 1977 it became registered landmark number 100 of San Francisco, which is great because it is a treasure that should be preserved. The outside of it was designed to resemble a Mexican cathedral while the inside is a fantastic blend of Spanish, Asian and Italian inspired decor.
My personal history with this theater started around 1992 when I moved to San Francisco. I’ve had the pleasure of viewing silent films with live accompaniment from the theater’s organ, classics like “The Wild Bunch,” animation festivals, the incredible Mexican film “Aventurera” and Diego Luna in the flesh from the theater’s less than comfortable seats (the beauty and sense of history in this place more than makes up for the uncomfortable seats).
