San Francisco: New Century Theater

San Francisco: New Century Theater

October 17, 2010. New Century Theater on Larkin St. in The Tenderloin, San Francisco. Photo taken at 7:08am after leaving my hostel in search of breakfast.

Opened in 1916 as The Larkin Theater, was hugely popular in the 1940's to 1960's, then declined and eventually was renamed The Century and became a porn theatre. The New Century Theater continues in this role as a porn theatre / strip club.
