A beautiful old-school theater right on 16th in the Mission District. Definitely worth going to if you are interested in seeing a more unique show.

This is an independent neighborhood movie theater that could technically be a multiplex -- there’s the Big Roxie (the one under the marquee, about 200 seats) and the Little Roxie (two doors down with the windows filled with movie posters, about 50 seats). They show...More

This is a wonderful hole in the wall theater. It is small, old, with a vintage feel. It caters to everyone but especially to the queer community. This theater shows hard to find films, vintage films, documentaries, and artistic/creative cinema works. The seats are worn...More

Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the
foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural
attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous
street murals and a high density of bars and cafes
make this neighbourhood a magnet for young people.
While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its
top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the
city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the
