Small Theater and/or Theater Seats for Sale? - San Francisco/Bay Area
posted by ibwff on December 24, 2003 at 8:25 am
I’m the director of a film festival in San Francisco and one of our long term goals is to purchase a theater for second-run, indie, classic, and community access screenings. We’re currently sharing space in a South of Market art gallery/multimedia gallery, but we’re looking to expand our focus.
Feel free to let me know if there are theaters for sale — or that will be for sale— in the next two years. Our focus is the San Francisco Bay Area — our area limit is San Leandro or El Cerrito (East Bay) and San Bruno (South Bay). We’d like to consider the immediate, local area.
BIG PLUS: We’re also looking for THEATER SEATS (50 max., in good condition) for our South of Market space! Feel free to send info about theatres and/or theater seats to .
Check out the San Francisco Neighborhood Theater Foundation at http://www.sfneighborhoodtheater.org/ . Their goal is to preserve the neighborhood theatres in San Francisco. Maybe they can assist you. I notice on their website that the Metro Theatre and Alexandria Theatre in San Francisco are for sale, but they both seem to be a lot bigger than what you are looking for.
The Metro lease is for sale for asking $4 million. Alexandria was $7million. Regal hopes for sales to redevelop the property.
