    Beautiful building and so fun to sing along to your favorite music. They even have an organ that is played before the movie begins! Wonderful viewing experience great for all ages - film content appropriate.

    Historic and iconic movie theater in the heart of Castro. Totally recommend their sing-a-long performances which day run regularly with different movied. I recommend checking their website in advance to see when is the best showing for you. We watched Queen on a Sunday and the theater was packed but comfortable. Paying extra for the sing-a-long was absolutely worth it! You get a goodie bag with fun props the audience can use while watching the movie. there is a costume contest and everybody is just joining in the fun!! I loved it

    The Castro is a beautiful and historic theater on Castro Street, near Market, in the heart of the Castro, the famous gay neighborhood. The 1400-seat theater has a live organist, a beautiful interior, and is chock full of history. It's great to see old kitschy movies there or go for a film festival or special screening. The Castro Theatre is a treasure! [Update March 2019] I love the Castro Theatre and have been here many times over the years. Last night, I went with friends to the Bohemian Rhapsody Sing-a-Long, which was one of the most fun nights I've had in years. Of course I had already seen the movie, which you should anyway but it makes this kind of event even better, and then seeing it this way was a special treat. With a $16 admission, you get a goodie bag filled with a paper gold crown, which most people wore, a glow stick, a popper thing, and a little bottle for blowing bubbles. The theatre was completely packed with a diverse crowd ready for fun. The Castro Theatre is beautiful, they have a live organist, arranged a little costume show off, and seem to care about their patrons enjoying themselves. We sang, we sighed, we whooped, we applauded and we hissed, we laughed and we cried, and we were all in it together. Like Queen says about Queen, we were a family, at least for a couple hours. And it was magical. I shall return.

    Beautifully restored, old time movie house. Healthy snack bar with great popcorn. Came from Sacramento to see a movie not playing in my area and this historic theater made it worth it.

    We did the Bohemian Rhapsody sing-along here. Everybody was given a bag of party goodies, including glow lights. We sat in the balcony of the jam packed theater. The preshow, with Freddie Mercury impersonator contest & performance, put everyone in a festive mood. But, the experience I'll relish forever was during the sing-along the entire audience would wave their glow lights, creating a rich tapestry of color & light. It's rare that you have a performance that engages an audience's senses the way this movie has. When it was over everyone felt exhilarated, as if they had witness something truly special. I love this theater, I love this movie, and I loved the audience.
