Buyer beware concerning Sceptre. I attended today and was quite disappointed in that the image didn’t fill the screen lately. I’d have been better off going to a LieMax in a mall in some soul less multiplex, gotten the same effect.
Also, this is my first time attending this venue in a very long time and wow, is this thing long in the tooth. I actually had to change seats as the one I selected was broken.
Thank you very much Steven, those are great photos!!
Hopefully Mike won’t mind my snatching up the photo from the New Mission’s twitter page. The marquee is lit- the Force clearly is with them!
Follow them for updates @DrafthouseSF.
Hopefully SF residents (visitors also) will give this updated complex a lot of attention on this site. This is an amazing renovation and I can’t wait to attend it personally next month.
Here’s another classic venue not being given the love it deserves.
In addition to showing the recent releases, they also present the classics. Recently Lou Costello’s daughter was on hand to introduce “Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein”. The crowd in attendance set an attendance record, surpassing that set by “Gone with the Wind”

Having seen laser 3D IMAX at the Metreon in SF, the picture is amazing. [ glasses a bit awkward] I had the opportunity to see ‘the Force Awakens’ trailer and was blown away- made me more excited for the movie.
They are lined up down Castro Street today for a screening of “The Godfather”. Such an amazing place to see a movie like this. That is presented digitally, however the ‘nightcap’ of “Serpico” is being shown on film.
I’ve yoinked the picture from Castro’s Facebook page, again to show what an amazing place it is.
Yup, that decision to go to San Francisco over Christmas & New Years is looking better and better…
Please update the website link
This will be hosting the annual Halloween showing of William Castle’s iconic “The Tingler” presented in “ Percepto”.
November 3rd, Kliph Nesteroff (Classic Showbiz on twitter and his blog) will be hosting a release for his book, “The Comedians”
So yes David, even though nary a post in 11 years of this amazing venue [ but the damn souless multiplex in North Jersey has over 3000 from the same person] this amazing venue is thriving like never before.
Thanks a lot David.
I saw TV’s Craig Ferguson there on my vacation there last year and was envisioning how cool it would be to have seen a movie there.
I yanked a photo from the Castro’s Facebook page. Shows the 13 reels of film for the Lawrence of Arabia screening that took place at the Castro a while back.
Stick your soulless multiplexes in North Jersey that certain board members obsess over, and post nonsensical self-servng drivel.
This is true motion picture entertainment at this amazing venue and deserves so much more respect on this board than it’s been getting.
Long Live the Castro Theatre.
Thanks for all of the updates on this fine theatre David. It’s appreciated you’ve been bringing something tangible to this board and not the usual trivial self-serving drivel that a lot of other members post and the moderators seem to allow.
Is it your money? Did you think maybe they have an agreement with the building that the marquee has to be a certain style?
What purpose does this serve- take this to AMC and not here.
I’m sure if you want to a library and located older copies of the New York Post, you can see as much as you want, even go back further if you like.
Pity this iconic venue needs to close. Shame that it doesn’t qualify for historical status/preservation.
Thankfully for those interested the videos released by them are still available on the website, including some that were actually produced in the Windy City.
do some research , the internet is an amazing place. Especially Google, bing, DuckDuckGo.
I believe that Hollywood90038, the same as myself and many other members on this board removed their photos and historical/transitional posts of value in protest to the trivial drivel that pollutes this site now.
why not go there and find out, take pictures and report back, how about the three year anniversary when you had the gall to tell someone about their comments as you continue with your self serving drivel.
[ oh and out of respect to the deity you invoke on your Sept 17, 2013, capitalize the G]
if not the GM of the theatre, then as I’ve told other patrons who use this site for venting about situations that @AMCHelps via twitter is amazingly receptive
This site does support paragraph breaks. It seems you have a compelling story there, pity it won’t be read.
Did you take these photos? if not, please credit where you got them from.
Thank you so very much for all the great advertisements you post up to the site, I appreciate your taking the time in trying to keep the site as a place for actual cinema memories, not trivial drivel and innuendo that this board has become.
The Liberty is being used into other events as with an advert I posted from a recent event.
Since you’re the person whom posting the re-opening of this complex, one might think you’d have the date correct. the “anniversary” of the reopening isn’t until November per that particular post. You’re 3 months too early.
and Markp is correct, this theater is nowhere 280. West Orange is 40 minutes away.
If insist on posting your drivel, please consult a map first.
[ Folks , markp and I are referencing how this jackass didn’t know the correct location of this lovely venue, that for when he removes his comment, now for the other 3000 nonsensical ones]
is it your money being spent to perform these renovations? Seriously, back your “statements of facts” up with some evidence , photographic and other wise, you jackass.
I’m sorry to see this is another theaters page that you’ve taken up with your self-serving non sensical drivel. There’s a reason Facebook was created, for “fans” of complexes to post innuendo there. I was always under the impression this board was to record the history of theaters not have some self serving posts put up and then have them magically disappear when someone stands up who is pissed off with the ridiciously trivial nature some of these posts have taken of late.
You link to a Facebook page above- I strongly suggest you use that for your nonsense.
A “moderator' once said nothing can be done about the trival posts. I disagree.
Do you even set foot in these places?
