San Francisco, CA, USA
Exterior shot of this beautiful movie palace. The last film to play
here was 'Wag The Dog' in 1998.
Another exterior view.
View of the balcony from the main floor. This theatre had been closed
for two years prior to these pictures being taken.
View of the large balcony and screen from the side of the projection
The grand tier seating. Heywood-Wakefield Hi-Back rockers!
View of what's left of the snack bar from the mezzanine level in the
lobby. Nice light fixtures.
View of the underside of the balcony seating (right above the snack
bar) showing the detailed paint on the ceiling.
More of the beautiful plasterwork in the auditorium.
View from the other side of the booth.
The booth after the equipment has been removed. The amp racks with
all the Post-It's was left for the gym people. :(
Another view, we left the 'skis' that the projector was sitting on.
The Booth: Norelco AAII with Cat 700 SRD reader on top, Strong Super-80
lamphouse with 4000 watt bulb.
Another angle of the booth showing the Neumade NeuTronic 35/70 platter
The sound rack, being prepared for disassembly. The Post-It notes are
being applied to the equipment by the building owner to mark equipment
being purchased by the new tenants (the theatre is going to be converted
into a health club... Why they want a complete Dolby CP-200 and Component
Engineering 6-channel booth monitor is a mystery to me.) The DA-20 and
Cat 700 SRD reader are now in service at another theatre.
Special Thanks to Norm Brown and Aaron Sisemore for the pictures.
