The Avenue Theater and City of San Francisco

Renew the Avenue

    1. Petition by

      Portola Neighborhood Association

The Avenue Theater, built in 1927, is the most significant historic property on the Portola District’s San Bruno business corridor. As the Portola continues to grow, it is more vital than ever that the San Bruno business corridor become home to businesses that represent the interest, culture and history of the community.

We, the undersigned, seek the support of the City in developing a unique use for the Avenue Theater that enhances both the business and culture of the Portola while maintaining the historic beauty of The Avenue.

    1. 500 ONLINE SIGNATURES!!!

      I'm very excited to let you all know that we have reached the 500 online signatures mark with our petition!!!

      Please keep them coming from friends and neighbors, but the next steps will be to take your signatures, along with the hundreds we've received on paper, to the city to get their help in convincing the owner of the Avenue that there is an alternative to putting a CVS in the space.

      Thanks to all of you who signed and asked friends and neighbors to do the same. Things are looking up in the Portola!!

      Thanks,

      The PNA

      This is history, an elegant, ornate and Grand icon. The most wonderful times in it's days of magic. What a wonderful idea to bring a special theatre back.

      There's already a Walgreens on Felton and San Bruno Ave. To tear down a beautiful/historic building for a CVS is just.. dumb and evil.
