The Castro Theater

Day 6

Today, we slept in quite late. Then we spent time in Japan Town before catching a bus back to the castro. Then we saw a double feature of 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea and Clash of the Titans.

I don't have many pictures, just a few of the garden outside our hotel and a few of the theater.

So the two movies were interesting. They were from 1954 and 1981. The theater was cool, although I'm not sure if it's as amazing as they say. I've heard that its worth seeing any movie you can just to go in the theater. I don't think this is true, there are plenty of other old and fancy places you can go for less than the $20 it took us to get in. Still, I liked watching the old movies, something I certainly wouldn't have done otherwise.

That is a pretty nice theater, but nice old movie theaters aren't all that rare. (Most of them have been re-purposed into general performance places. Like Proctors in Schenectady, the Palace in Albany, the Ohio Theater in Columbus, the list goes on.) I mean, it's more of a neoclassical style to the more common Baroque Revival, and it is pretty, but it's not all *that* amazing.
