GOLDEN GATE THEATRE

1 TAYLOR ST.
AT MARKET ST. & 6TH ST.
San Francisco, CA 94102
 

Built in the 1920s, this former vaudeville house and movie theater was restored and reopened nearly 60 years later as a leading-edge performing arts venue. The Golden Gate Theatre is located at the corner of Taylor Street and Golden Gate Avenue and is a part of the Market Street Theatre and Loft District, which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986—the United States federal government’s official list of historic places deemed worthy of preservation.

An architectural standout when it opened in downtown San Francisco in 1922, this magnificent 2,200-seat theater—which started undergoing refurbishments in August 2017—has now been reimagined for today’s audiences, yet with all the architectural splendor and authenticity of the original structure lovingly preserved. The Golden Gate Theatre officially reopened on Tuesday, September 11, 2018.
