Opened on November 2, 1949 with Cary Grant in “I Was a Male War Bride”. This Streamline Moderne ‘cavern’ with 1,350 seats on a stadium plan, became San Francisco’s Church of the Big-Budget Blockbuster. Both “Star Wars: Special Edition” and “Phantom Menace” made their debuts here, with people camping for weeks in the dumpster-strewn parking lot.
Despite its massive appeal, gigantic screen, and state-of-the-art sound system, the Coronet Theatre was closed in March 2005 and was razed in the summer of 2007 for a senior-care facility.
