I just moved back into the neighborhood and looked forward to living near one of my favorite theatres. Now I find it’s closed! Damn, not another multiplex or Starbucks, or god knows what modern horror.

I didn’t know until I tried to attend last week. How sad!

Well I have been here for “She’s All That ” in the main auditorium & the upstairs for the screening of “10 Things I Hate About You”…
It’s a nice looking theater inside & out.

What are the circumstances surrounding its closure? Has someone purchased the Alexandria?

I saw the Premiere of THE TOWERING INFERNO at this house.
Wonderful! Such a tragedy as it will probably not be saved.
The land is so valuable where it sits – I am fearful it will
be razed. A landmark that should be preserved. God Help
The Alexandria!

The Alexandria was a exclusive roadshow house in the 1960’s and was one of the top theatres in SF. I saw “Oliver”, “The French Connection”, “Nicholas and Alexandra” and many more through the years. It would have been nice if a chain such as Landmark could have purchased the Alexandria because they would know what to do with this house. Regal looks like they are abandoning SF after picking up the UA Theatre Circuit. It would be nice if they sold it with a little concern what people in the City feel about there neigberhood theatres. The bigger the circuits get the less they care about regional areas. The City government should remember who cares about the City and who doesn’t before awarding future building permits for future movie theatres in the future. SF was one of the last major cities in the country to be full of viable single screen theatres. It was not until the arrival of Amc and Sony in the 1990’s that caused the death of many of these theares. Now San Francisco can be like any other City with megaplex theatres and no longer unique. I guess LA will be the only city left in the US With Deluxe first run theatre such as the “Chinese”, “El Capitan”,“Cinerama Dome”, “Fox Village”, “Bruin”, “National”, “Crest” and a few others. Thank God SF has the “Castro” which is run by an independent who knows how to run these special theatres.brucec

Still one of the best seats in San Francisco. I always try to see first run films in the downstairs auditorium whenever possible. My last visit was with my 5yr old son to see “Finding Nemo”. Beautiful house.
