SAN FRANCISCO, CA – From October 27, 2005 through May 2, 2006, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (www.sfmoma.org) will present a suite of 14 drawings of California picture palaces by Timothy L. Pflueger, one of the Bay Area’s most important architects.

Featured drawings include historic plans for San Francisco’s Castro Theater (1922); The Alhambra Theater (1926), the first West Coast cinema to be decorated inside and out in a Moorish theme; and the East Bay’s Alameda Theater (1932), a structure distinguished by its soaring Art Deco facade.

Also included are drawings for the Central Valley’s Tulare Theater (1927), a desert fortress outlined in glowing neon.
