Is this the same place ?
I forgot about The Warfield which has rock concerts.
This theater had a huge fire that started in the projection room.
Sadly an amazing fact is that at one time there were 59 movie theaters on Market Street. Only the Orpheum Theatre now showing plays survives.
This theater sat boarded up with all the glass still intact and the concession stands too.
They turned it into a CVS drugstore.
For years this theater ran every James Bond film on the first day it opened. The manager had a little white poodle and the floors of the theater were covered in sticky soda residue while the ceiling was covered with hundreds, if not thousands of Mason Dots that people woul chew and through up to the ceiling. I saw every Bond film there hen it opened from 1964-1980.
The theater as a strip club had several people die in it and was haunted. Paranormal investigators were terrified to go into the basement where the deaths occurred.
I saw the movie Superman at this theater on the day it opened.
They gutted this theater and turned it into a Walgeens.😡
