UGH

such bad news. So sad, hopefully it does not become the eye sore that the Alexandria has become. Thankfully the Strand is on it’s way back.

The Red Vic is across the street from where my sister lives and sadly it looks like it’s been closed for years. A lot of homeless people sleep in the doorways and garbage has piled up. The building has seen some vandalizing too, which is sad. I really hoped someone would snap this place up and re-open it. Maybe modify it a bit to do more food and stuff. It was a nice place and easily return. Hope someone figures it out soon before too much damage is done.

According to a redevelopment proposal, the theater may get a partial return to theatrical use in addition to the entreprenurial “incubator” use: View article

According to the publication SFist, there is a proposal to turn the former Red Vic into “a food-centric incubator space where budding entrepreneurs and retailers can get their sea legs before moving on to their own commercial kitchens or storefronts”.

The Red Vic has plans to close with a final screening of Harold and Maude on July 25. If you are in the area, try to get to the theater this month or next for one last time!

KTVU-2 news last night ran an article about the attendence at the Castro theater suffering due to the decline of available “revival film product”. They mentioned that the Red Vic has been struggling as well and has had to cut back in printing film schedules.
