San Francisco's Vogue Theater is one of the lucky old movie houses. Opened in 1910 (and known then as the Rex) it's one of the few in San Francisco that are still in business. And its got a whole new life, brought on by new ownership heavily funded by private contributions. I love that something good for the city like this has come about. Usually they're tearing them down or turning them into gyms (don't even get me started on what Gorilla Sports did to the old Alhambra Theater).
So, yeah for the SF Neighborhood Theater Foundation (the great folks who bring us Film Night in the Park) for rallying together with the help of new owner Michael Wilkinson! Sounds like they have great things planned, including hand delivering popcorn to movie goers if there's a waiting line and showtime is tight, traditional old movie candy like Redvines and Junior Mints and many more documentaries, indie and art films. I love films and the inspiration I get from them. As I've mentioned before, I sometimes get lost in the set design and forget about the plot! I'm so happy to be able to support the Vogue. Death to the cineplex - The Vogue lives!
