The RKO Hillstreet Theatre was the sister theatre of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Theatre. The Hillstreet Theatre was opened in March 20, 1922 with Elaine Hammerstein in the movie “Why Announce Your Marriage” on the screen, and a programme of vaudeville on the stage. It was designed in a Gothic Revival style by architect G. Albert Lansburgh. In 1947, the foyer and entrance was remodeled into a ‘Moderne’ style, to the plans of the Heinsbergen Decorating Company.
The theatre closed in April 1963, and was demolished in 1965. Today what once was the site of the RKO Hillstreet Theatre sits a bank branch and a parking lot.
