Golden Gate Theatre

1 Taylor Street, San Francisco, CA, USA
Seats (approximate): 2304

Stand beneath the sign climbing four stories high that has welcomed theatergoers for over 80 years. You imagine them in formal attire lining around the block for the Golden Gate Theatre's 1922 vaudeville opening. They clamor to see the Marx Brothers and rush screaming by to catch a glimpse of Frank Sinatra at the stage door. They flirt during a double feature and flock to see anything on the Cinerama wide screen. As entertainment evolved, the grand theatre with its magnificent stage and enviable acoustics was altered beyond recognition. Then, ten tons of steel, including an escalator, four tons of plaster, sheet rock, studs and insulation, plus four thousand square feet of plywood was painstakingly removed. The Golden Gate was restored to its original size and splendor to present live theater once again most recently, Broadway blockbusters.
