Tower Theater

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Majestic Theater was opened in April 1912. It was remodeled in a Streamline Moderne style by architect S. Charles Lee in 1937. Some detail still remains of the old Streamline Moderne styled Tower Theater.

The building was used as a church for many years, but by 2007, they had moved out and the building is ‘For Sale’.

This is a recent b/w shot. It looks like the marquee is starting to fall apart.

The April 20, 1912, issue of the regional entertainment magazine The Rounder reported the grand opening of San Francisco’s Majestic Theatre.

The August, 1937, issue of the trade publication Architect & Engineer attributed the design of the remodeling of the Majestic Theatre to architect S. Charles Lee. The project is not mentioned in the online finding aid for the S. Charles Lee collection at UCLA, though. I know that a significant percentage of Lee’s papers were stolen from him. Those pertaining to the Tower project must have been among them.
