Castro Theatre celebrates anniversary in San Francisco
Homes for sale in the Bay Area are located near some of the most well-known establishments in northern California. Iconic theaters, playhouses and stores are cultural symbols of San Francisco, and some of these have been around for over a century. The anniversaries of these places often lead to large celebrations, as is the case with the San Francisco Castro Theatre.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported that the public Castro Theatre first opened its doors in 1922, and this year will celebrate its 90th anniversary. The management is planning a number of shows and concerts to help mark this momentous occasion, including a jazz performance by the oldest member of the Nasser family, who is the current owner of the theater.
"There aren't many of these magic movie palaces left," said Don Nasser, according to the news source. "All the history begins to sink in. I remember sitting there in wonderment, looking at all the detail and beauty of the theater."
If you've just moved to the area and would like to check out some of the festivities, head down to 429 Castro Street in the southwest corner of San Francisco.
