Why locals recommend it
Among many other things, the Castro Theatre is known for its sing-alongs, when it screens popular musicals with captions so that the audience can belt those lyrics together. Expect a very energetic crowd—the staff often hands out goodie bags with various props for everyone to use throughout the movie. They’ve shown movies like Sound of Music, The Little Mermaid, and Grease. Definitely wear something fun if you can—there’s often a costume contest. And if you get there early, you’ll get a chance to hear the in-house organist perform.

One of the last remaining classic movie theatres in the city. Get there before the movie starts to hear the in-house Wurlitzer organ performances.

This famous theater is in the heart of the Castro and encompasses some of our cities soul. Go and feel like a funky local :) Has many special shows with live talent or sing-a-longs.

Historical landmark of San Francisco. You won't find current releases here, but you will often find something more kitschy and fun like sing-alongs or film festivals here.
