Built as the Mandarin Theatre in 1925, in the heart of San Francisco’s Chinatown, it was initially used to stage Chinese opera. Later renamed the Sun Sing Theatre in 1949.
It closed as a movie house in 1986, and has since been converted into retail use, as the Sun Sing Center.
Its exterior and interior were used for a sequence in the 1948 Orson Welles film, “The Lady From Shanghai”.
