Even though I’m sure Phil & Robert are long gone. I really enjoyed reading those stories about this theatre, and miss it too everytime I walk up Powell Street, past that Burger King.

These are the posts that made this board great. It’s a shame really what it’s become.

well Steven I can address that. I adore the San Francisco theatres, like the Castro, Balboa, Alamo Drafthouse, Roxie, even the AMC Metreon because it has LASER IMAX :p I even gave the information to the board about the SF Centre when it first opened.

So what happened? Well, then the PTB of this board feel that allowing 1540 comments about an complex in North Jersey written by mainly one member in an unending dialogue, theatre discussion pages turning into Facebook or a newspaper comment section instead of bringing true historical value to the site, I deleted them.

It has to do with value. Why should I waste my time by bringing something of true value and historical signifance when it gets piddled on. Case in point, out of respect for Gary Meyer putting over the Balboa’s 90th and a certain board member having to put an inane post after it under the guise of wishing the venue well, but we all know why it was done.

I’ve made my displeasure known in many ways, and I know this post won’t remain because it’s negative and truthful so I hope Steven gets to read it.

Once the truly offencive posts get deleted and pages shut down, I might come back with real infomration.

on March the 6th, this great theatre will be celebrating it’s 90th birthday!

including a screening of the 1926 “Tramp, Tramp, Tramp” accompanied by live piano accompaniment from Kylan deGhetaldi! The night will be hosting by the awesome Gary Meyer!

Also, magic, live music, trivia and prizes and what birthday party would be complete without CAKE?

Info on the Balboa’s website and i’ve uploaded the advert to the photo section out of respect to this amazing venue that deserves respect and proper attention on it’s 90th birthday.

Here’s hoping some great memories of patrons are included on this theatre’s page!

To actually get back to the historical value and actual information that this site was intended for.

Iconic gay director Wakefield Poole held a three screen world premiere of his “Take One” on May 25, 1977. It was here, also at the Paris and Nob Hill in San Francisco.

Ad from the world premiere added to photos.

Thanks for your great photos steven and the time you took to post them. I attended on 12/26 and took some photos as well. I enjoyed the lobby shots and of course presentation and alcohol beverages. Can’t wait to make this a regular stop on my SF vacations.

Wow, all the time I spent in Lefty O'Douls and I had no clue.

hdtv267 commented about Nob Hill Adult Theatre on Nov 24, 2013 at 1:33 pm

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.

it’s a shame it is no longer there. Green Acres seemed to be the place to be!

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.
