Coming in at Number 5 on the SFBG’s list of Top 10 Bay Area theaters, is this fine complex.

I’ll echo what is said here about staff being very friendly, great selection of indie movies- but can’t speak of the Vegan cookies.

From the theatre’s Facebook page…

“Have you heard the news? We are about to experience extensive renovations to our Embarcadero Center Cinema and will be temporarily closed starting this Fri, June 28 until November. When we reopen, guests will experience new changes including newly remodeled concessions and box office areas, and the addition of a wine and beer bar! Be sure to come out and see a film from now until Thurs, June 27.”

Well now this theatre can be marked as “RENOVATING”. Photos from the remodel have been promised on their Facebook page for the duration.

Here’s hoping that they re-open on time for November 8th (or at least by the 13th), if so I’ll try to get some photos to post up here.

I went last night and took quite a few photos. I’ll post here when they’re up at Cinematour.

In my head — Cinematreasures = stories and anecdotes

Cinematour = photos.

Also — I have enough of a headache trying to keep Cinematour information up to date. If I spend too much energy getting photos to both sites I’ll go mad.
