The Castro is one of the world’s most spectacular movie houses. Built in 1922, this historic landmark is an architectural marvel unto itself, with its 1,407-seat auditorium decorated in a blend of Spanish, Italian and Asian styles. Located in the heart of San Francisco’s main gay district, it offers unforgettable moments for everyone from the film scholar to the blasé moviegoer, from the little old lady to the youngster on an houting with his two daddies.
