A non-profit group in the San Francisco Bay Area whose mission is to save and restore a movie theatre with historic murals is in need of new leadership and board members. We need people with experience, drive, and passion as we are just shy of reaching our goal. Previous fundrasing experience is a must. This is a non-profit group and all interest must be non-profit as well. Please email me with your interest. Thank you.

My guess is the Coronet, though possibly the Metro.

Scott, do you mean the S.F. Coronet? that was demolished.

The Metro theatre was beautifully restored in the 1980s. It proved financially not viable as a single screen theatre and closed about a year ago. It is now boarded up and faces the same possible demolition that almost all of San Francisco’s movie houses have already been subjected to in the last couple of decades.

San Francisco lost its “The City That Knows How” moniker years ago. It is now “The City That Doesn’t Care”, especially when it comes to theatres.

Sad!
