SAN FRANCISCO, CA — San Francisco’s Metro Theatre showcases both 1924 Spanish Colonial design and Art Deco remodel, yet has been closed since 2006. The San Francisco Landmarks Board will consider landmark status for the Metro Theater on Wednesday, February 6 at 12:30 pm in Room 400, City Hall. The Metro item is #14 of a 14-item agenda so it will be later in the afternoon. If you can attend, please do so. If not, consider emailing the Board.

The nomination incorporated renovation photos that Ken Roe and I linked to Cinema Treasures, which shows the great importance that this website serves, and how important it is to publicly share theater photos (historic, renovation, and current).

Here are two of the photos:
