Roxie Theater

The Roxie, built long before the multiplex era, is one of San Francisco's last independent cinemas. It programs an eccentric repertory schedule that is a cinema goer's dream. It showcases some rarely seen but fabulous films that were quality-made with not a single marketing campaign in sight. It also booked the controversial documentary Kurt & Courtney when no other theater in the country would touch it. The Roxie also host a number of popular film festivals. A registered non-profit since 2009, this lovely piece of SF heritage is well worth seeking out. Check their website for show times, ticketing information, educational programs, membership details, rentals and more.

AMC Loews Metreon 16

Presidio Theatre

This compact Deco darling in the Marina spent part of its life as an adult theater. Fortunately, its been rehabilitated (and refurbished) since those days. The imposing facade's sharp geometric lines make for an interesting contrast to the cozy interior of this single-screen, first-run cinema. The neighborhood is perfect for strolling before or after the feature. Assisted listening devices are also available.

2340 Chestnut Street, San Francisco, CA, United States, 94123
The Balboa Theater

The Balboa Theater is a neighborhood theater that's been divided in two. Each theater shows films that are always interesting, whether art films or general releases. It offers gourmet coffee, and the double features are a deal if you want to catch up on classy recent releases. Voted "Best Neighborhood Theater" by the SF Bay Guardian, it is a true San Francisco staple. See website for showtimes, ticket pricing and more.
