Mission St.: Tower Theater

Mission St.: Tower Theater

October 16, 2010. Tower Theater on Mission St. in San Francisco.

Another old and vacant theatre in The Mission. Built in 1911, grand opening 1912, and originally named The Majestic, it was updated and renamed to Tower Theater around 1937. Apparently the walls were covered in western-themed murals. The theatre closed in 1996, and had a short stint as a church/cult, and has been closed and for sale since about 2006.

Some history and photos are available online at Cinema Treasures and eHow.
