Een architectonisch meesterwerk. Het Fillmore is alleen al om het gebouw de moeite waard, net las om de bands die hier optreden. Ga op de dansvloer staan naast het historische podium en kijk naar de hoge plafonds, versierd met sculptures en gouden verf, terwijl de speakers je botten laten ratelen. Als je in plaats daarvan voor de rust van het balkon kiest, kun je in de fluwelen stolen zitten, van een cocktail nippen en frietjes eten. Met posters die bijna iedere groep weergeven die hier ooit heeft opgetreden kun je de historie van de Amerikaanse muziek hier in zijn volledigheid aanschouwen. Het varieert per show of ze creditcards accepteren. Zie de website voor de kalender, online reserveringen en meer.
Built in 1922, The Castro Theatre is San Francisco's only remaining movie palace. When it's not hosting film festivals, this 1400-seat house runs a repertory calendar heavy on film classics; there is no better place to see The Wizard of Oz. The interior reflects the elegance of a bygone era with its red velvet seats and walls that feature molded plaster and fresco detailing. The fanciful ceiling, from which an imposing art deco chandelier hangs, is designed to evoke the interior of a Bedouin tent. A mighty Wurlitzer organ plays between evening shows and completes the antique feel of the theater.

Constructed as a temporary attraction for the 1915 Pan-Pacific International Exhibition, Palace of Fine Arts & Theatre continues to enchant the city. The original plaster, which made up the monument's exterior, has been gradually replaced, with funds raised by the Marina's residents who wanted to preserve a graceful part of their landscape. Swans in the adjoining lagoon glide by the soaring ocher-tinted colonnades and the imposing dome rigged with panels of centaurs and warriors. Stroll inside the dome and marvel at the uncanny acoustics, then enjoy a picnic lunch on one of the park benches to provide an unparalleled view of this gem.
