The story of the St. Francis
SAN FRANCISCO, CA — In the Examiner, some memories of the St. Francis Theatre along with an update on its current status.
The St. Francis Theatre (“Theater”) is a neo-classical building that was a movie theater for approximately 90 years (1911-2001). It has remained vacant since it closed, and it is boarded up.
Urban Realty Company and Commonfund Realty Inc. have proposed knocking down the buildings from 935 to 965 Market Street, including the Theatre, to replace them with a new mid-rise building called CityPlace.
