Fodor's Review

A large neon sign marks the exterior of this 1,400-plus seat art-deco movie palace whose exotic interior transports you back to 1922, when the theater first opened. High-profile festivals present films here, and classic revivals and foreign flicks also unfold. Lines for the Castro's popular sing-along movie musicals often trail down the block.
