Worth seeing a movie at this grand theatre.
Saw a Hitchcock movie here with the organist playing Hitchcock themes before the movie.
Beats the stock standard movie theatre.

My family and I went to the beautiful Castro theater during our last trip to SF and absolutely loved it. First off, it is amazingly beautiful. You tend to forget how beautiful movie theaters were back in the day, and how movie going was an experience. An organ emerged onto the stage and the beautiful sounds bounced off of the beautiful walls before the movie started. We saw Bad News Bears, with movie trailers from the 70s. The whole experience was great!

A left-over single screen from the golden era of cinema. The interior is decorated artistically and they even has a real live organist who appears and disappears on a elevator platform before each movie. The films are old, modern, genre specific, classic, noir, etc...always a treat.
