Castro Theatre Conservancy started this petition to City of San Francisco

One of our City’s most precious landmarks – the Castro Theatre – is under siege.

The Castro Theatre Conservancy [CTC] stands for maintaining the landmark Castro Theatre as San Francisco’s preeminent movie palace and iconic LGBTQ+ resource. Please join us in advocating that the Castro Theatre not be reconfigured in ways that would undermine film presentation or price out LGBTQ+ events or the City’s many independent film festivals that call the Castro home.

San Francisco has the most vibrant film culture in the country and the Castro is the historic soul of that vibrancy. There are numerous examples of successful multi-use auditoriums with traditional movie seating that host concerts, dance, theater, and film.

Please join the CTC and urge the City to ensure that the historic orchestra seating and sloped floor that are so essential to preserving the filmgoing experience are maintained. These important features and more have been highlighted in an upcoming expanded City landmark designation as submitted by District 8 Supervisor Rafael Mandelman.

San Francisco has many chairless, flat-floored venues for live music but only one auditorium that can present film to large audiences - the Castro Theatre!

We invite you to support the CTC along with other supporters from San Francisco and beyond working to guarantee the preservation of the Castro Theatre, inside and out!
