San Francisco has a vibrant film culture. From local theaters that play obscure cult movies to blockbuster theaters with couch seating and table service, there is a movie theater for all tastes! We’ve compiled a list of San Francisco’s best so you can sit in the warmth and comfort of a theater during a cold San Francisco night.
A) Roxie Theater: Watching a movie at the Roxie is on every local’s bucket list. This two-theater cinema has gone through multiple name changes since 1909 and is San Francisco’s oldest continuously open cinema.

B) Sundance Kabuki: This theater is a great date spot! They have great food and drinks for you to snack on before your movie starts and the seats are wicked comfortable.

D) The Metreon: Located in the Target building downtown, The Metreon is a traditional movie theater. If you have some extra time, play the fun pinball games at the front of the theater. On your way into your seats, you’ll walk down the longest hall of your life, if you walk close enough to the end, stop by the windows and look outside, the view is quite extraordinary.
Show times. Park at our Minna & 5th Garage
E) Castro Theatre: All you need to know is that if you’re lucky, an organist will grace your ears with a soundtrack to your film. This beautiful theater plays really great obscure movies and is a beloved san Francisco classic.
Show Times. Park across Market in our Castro & Market garage
F) AMC Van Ness: Another traditional theater, AMC Van Ness spans 4 floors, has an IMAX theater, and the most recent 3D technology! A trip to this theater means a bunch of escalator rides and really great audio quality.

G) Clay Theater: Opened in 1910, this one-theater establishment is known for their Gourmet snacks and midnight showings. They only have one screen and specialize in lesser known movies.
