Why do you need to fax them? You have a computer. Whenever I’ve not gotten credit for a movie on my Stubs account for whatever reason, I’ve taken a photo of my ticket stub and then emailed the photo and my information to the AMC Stubs website and it’s cleared up in a day or two.
I made a return to the Nob Hill in November of 2013. This was on a Saturday evening for the live show with 2 stars- Kieron Ryan and JR Matthews. During their show, Kieron brought up his boyfriend from the audience to join in.
It was a fun night and interesting program to say the least. Other dancers performed before and after the headliners.
There were women in attendance as well and in the audience- Myself and other male members of the audience were uncomfortable about their being there. But legally- they can not be kept out.
Ah Kip Noll, such fond memories of meeting him at another NYC venue called the Follies. One of my favourites back then.
I remember making a special trip up to see this one.
Very well written Kurt. Thank you for sharing
woo hoo- Dollar Hot Dogs!
Thats the link to the theater page via StarPlex if someone wants to update even more accurately!!
Wish my scheduling had worked out for this round of Bill Castle’s films. I went last time and had a blast,er, buzz at the screenings.
Work is beginning on the ACT renovation of the Strand.
It will be divided into three theatres actually.. From today (8/5/13) SF Chronicle..
“The architectural rendering shows 15 rows of seating, steeply raked, on the main floor and another five rows on the balcony, with boxes to the side. As opposed to 1,025 seats at the main stage, known informally as the Geary and formally as the American Conservatory Theater, the Strand will seat 285. Upstairs will be an ultra-experimental "black box” third stage seating 120"
It’s scheduled to re-open in January of 2015.
Link with details including photos is here, if someone wishes to link up, that would be great, and easier for the other members..
Thank you for the confirmation mhvbear, I appreciate it .
I concur with Chuck. I’ve always had great email exchanges with AMC on various complex issues and had them dealt with to my satisfaction.
Oh and please watch the double posts as well. I’m pretty sure you can go back and delete the extra one.
Well due to timing for seeing the 3D version of “Despicable Me 2” saw me heading back to this venue again. It was 9:30 am and I was pleasantly surprised at what I saw.
The staff was quite welcoming this time. Even though minor confusion about the 3D glasses, but I just attributed that to it being roughly 30 mins before show time. I’m sure they sorted it out as the rest of the patrons came in.
People were well behaved as best I could see. I headed down to the front of the theatre half way through. Not because of problems, but because I wanted a better vantage point to enjoy the 3D.
There seemed to be a slight issue at the beginning with the AMC logo , but I let management know and it was cleared up right away. We got the info about putting the 3D glasses on and the “please be considerate” screen was kept up for a bit.
Will I go back? Not really sure. It might have been the morning after a holiday.
But since I took the time to bitch so much last time, I wanted to come back and say that job well done this time out.
it is- so where is the link providing that information?
please post it in the future.
I fail to see how this and the rest of your trip along Hollywood Blvd today is really “contributing something to the conversation” and “staying on topic”
yeah, I fail to understand what that even is supposed to mean.
it’s a shame it is no longer there. Green Acres seemed to be the place to be!
without question, as I commented about a multiplex still using film in this day and age.
I find it hard to believe that a multiplex showing a wide release in IMAX 3D is hardly noteworthy or any of the comments on this multiplex, which is why I think the Facebook page is more the place for them.
good that they’ve got a facebook page, perhaps your comments are better suited for that, since that’s been the level of them. Hardly a historic/informational comment that you’ve seen a movie there.
if everyone posted up when they saw a movie at a particular theatre or had a bowel movement there in, this site would crash.
A much needed update required here. After some “unpleasantness” the Pink Diamonds closed.
The Power Exchange sex club (formerly from Otis Street in SOMA) now makes it’s ‘home’ here. I’d guess it has been doing so since sometime in 2010. Seems to be still going strong today, as there was a Yelp review posted up on 5/30/13.
I’ve not been there since the Campus days- partly due to it’s location and it’s newer incarnations aren’t my “thing”
quite a historic venue this. The GEVI lists this venue as the first to show “softcore gay porn” back in 1968.
Yankee Stadium is 6 miles away. I guess that qualifies as close
Demolition date 5/8/13
Yup, it is closed. The website now goes to a splash page for something called “G-string Horror”, a ‘horror’ movie with ties to that theatre and also the “ghosts” alleged to be there in.
I too hope it’s able to find some new life- as a theatre.
Might it be time for the Alamo Drafthouse people to start looking at a 2nd location for San Francisco? This location being right in the thick of downtown would be perfect than the Mission location of the proposed venue and light a fire under the Metreon and Van Ness.
Only if someone out there knew someone with that company. Maybe next time some photos?
a half cent price increase seems a bit strange. How does that work out really?
The man’s last name is “Letterman”. With his first name being “David”, having a gay porn theatre bearing that name close to where you’re doing the show would be a good thing.
