these next two drawings were done while sitting in my favorite movie theatre, the Castro Theatre in san fransisco. This one was really quick, as the organist played before the feature started.
I think i've been to a lot of the theatres in the bay area, and the Castro is the best, It has the most wonderful atmosphere, combined with excellent programming.
It was designed by Timothy Pflueger, one of the greatest bay area architects. He built an even greater theatre a few years after in Oakland, the Paramount theatre, which is world famous as an art deco treasure.
If you live in San Fransisco or the Bay area, you really owe it to yourself to see a movie there sometime. they choose a healthy mix of films, from arthouse stuff,new and old classics, to animation, to silent films, and even mainstream things, something for everyone.
