SAN FRANCISCO, CA — National Public Radio’s All Things Considered aired a report on Friday about the firing of Anita Monga, the former programmer at the Castro Theatre.
Since the firing, many fans of the Castro — who believe that Monga’s work was instrumental to crafting the Castro’s legendary film schedule — are planning to protest with boycotts and pickets.
Listen to the report here. (There’s also some discussion of this issue on the Castro’s page here on Cinema Treasures.)
This is the begining of the end for the Castro. Sadly it will join the Sutton and Cinema 1-2-3 as beloved theatres destroyed.
