The Great China opened around 1925 in the heart of San Francisco's
Chinatown; in the early 1960’s, its name was changed to Great Star.
Only Chinese films were ever shown there, it closed around 2000,
and is now vacant.

The headers need to be changed for this theatre: Status: Open, Function: Live performances (Chinese)
Current Name: Great Star Theatre

I have a San Francisco Chronicle advert dated November 1976 for the Great Star screening “Oriental Playgirl”

For a tribute to Run Run Shaw, this theatre will be open again showing films as part of the CAAM Festival

Great article in the Chronicle

But where is the overview. If nothing else, because of it’s location, there must be quite a history.

A campaign by the new managers to put the finishing touches in place after two years of just cleaning her up. Performances have happened since they took over and more are planned.
