Photos of the Fox marquee, advertisement for “Battle of the Century” and bit of write up about Laurel & Hardy’s appearance at the Fox are listed at the blog linked below
Had a bit of a chuckle at this morning’s screening of “Jack the Giant Slayer” in “Digital IMAX 3D. Crowd was sparse, the mind numbing promo fest better known as "first look” is coming to a thankful conclusion, the trailers are about to begin.
A voice cries out from the front of the auditorium “If you’ve got 3D glasses in the plastic packaging, come out and get the right glasses”.
Apparently they gave out “regular” 3D glasses instead of the AMC Digital IMAX 3D ones. It was quite humorous, but they did fix the mistake. Just something to point out for posterity.
There’s a “Croods” no talking/texting promo they are running now. Unfortunately it’s lost in the plethora of commercials that are run. No wonder no one pays attention.
Is the Market Street Cinema haunted? The folks from “Ghost Adventures” check this out on the episode that aired first on 3/1/13 and I’m sure will be running off quite a bit on the Travel Channel. Check the local listings in your region.
I’m not a believer (personally) but there’s alot of great tidbits about the history of this great venue, how the strip club now just in housed in part of the old Imperial theatre. Check this show out ( or place out in the City of Saint Francis, should your proclivities go that route)
I was never aware those three had made a movie together :P
oh I found the link with the photo I referenced.
No, it’s film. That’s why the run’s been so long. I recall a photo taken of the 99 boxes of IMAX film needed to run it.
The March 2013 calendar has hit the streets and oh look, no empty days this month.
It’s filled with a screening of “Les Miserables”, 70mm showing of “The Master”, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”, Palm Sunday (3/24), “The Ten Commandments” and an appearance by Ru Paul Drag Race start “Latrice Royale” for a screening of Paris is Burning.
I was just quoting Angelo Cataldi to at least give some manner of update on this theater.
Hopefully I’ll be able to get there myself soon and post a more personal review and photos.
Great seeing the El Capitan in the background during the Oscar pre-show hoopla yesterday (2/24/13)
One would presume it’s not open showing movies, but does it serve any use in the festivities? Holding pen of some kind? You think it might be used as a great perch/camera location for some of the programming.
and more copy righted images on this theatre’s photo page as well.
was this really necessary?
So wait, there’s not 16 screens any longer? You said the “theater count” needed to be changed. Is it 15 screens now or is it 17?
If you meant to say the SEATING figure should be adjusted- do you have the new number? If you do, please provide this so they can make the adjustment above.
This theatre has opened as was discussed this morning (2/25/13) on the WIP Morning show. Program host Angelo Cataldi raved about the new seating, digital projection system (the picture is clearer than the best high definition television out there)
He did go on quite a bit about a scene in “Side Effects” though
Hopefully someone will get out there and get some photographs to post up here soon.
With the closing of the Lumiere recently, it looks as though viewing times have expanded here ( and at the Clay) as well. So they are up to 4 shows a day instead of 2, which is great.
what is this having to do with this theater? I’m thrilled that you attended the Oscar marathon, however, what does it have to do with this theatre?
Muni Will Pay $131,250 Per Month To Lease The Pagoda Theater Site…
Not exactly negotiating from a position of strength, Muni has agreed to pay Campos $3.15 million in rent for a 24-month lease. In addition, Muni will pay for the demolition of the Pagoda Theater and ask San Francisco’s Planning Commission to declare the site a Special Use District, clearing the way for the five-story Palace at Washington Square to rise.
Thanks for the update. Seeing “One, Two, Three” on the big screen is going to be a real treat. I had the pleasure of seeing it at the Castro a few years ago.
Spent a lovely Sunday afternoon seeing the film “Side Effects”. Two things. ..
My dream came true, as bad as it might have been for business, I was the only person in this particular theatre.
Secondly I was very happy to be in one of what I know to be still showing movies on film ( as opposed to the digital) rooms. Venues Three and Four still run film. I can’t speak of the others, I believe 10 might as well.
I squee with delight when I learn a movie I want to see is there, since I’m not sure how much longer it will last.
Another great turn out for today’s “Silent Film Festival” (2/16/13) Twitter posting photos show a full house. Frank Buxton of the SF Silent Film Festival said “ this is where silent film ought to be shown”
July 18-21 is the summer silent film festival- also announced today was the “Hitchcock 9”, nine Hitchcock silent classics from June 14-16
It looks as though the IMAX for this venue has gone reserve seating. Great idea IMO
Well not sure about Star Trek, but looks like “Jack the Giant Slayer” is slaying them already the opening weekend as shows are already sold out in the reserved seating IMAX venue.
Odd, I presumed they’d get the IMAX 3D OZ ( well wishful thinking) opening a week later. Well still great to see one of the 2 movies I’m really excited for playing in this great theatre.
Hoping people are dead?

I’m sorry that you were fired. Especially on your birthday. That’s a terrible thing, but again, your language on this site leaves alot to be desired.
Looking at some of your other comments, I’d seriously give some heavy thought as to whom the loser is.
I’m saddened that this is the 2nd instance of this word appearing on the site from the same poster.
Doesn’t a filter exist to hold certain words. I’m all for free speech, but there’s not really a place for profanity is there?
In fact according to the sites own guidelines…

Why does this person even have an account?
eat at the Fern Rock Diner, maybe?
The vote for demolition has been delayed a week whilst the building’s owner and MUNI continue to haggle.
