Another Planet Entertainment announces town hall meeting on controversial changes to historic Castro Theatre
Another Planet Entertainment has just announced it will be hosting a town hall meeting about the upcoming changes to the historic 100-year-old Castro Theatre on Thursday, August 11 at the Castro.
Frances chef-owner Melissa Perello talks about the new prix-fixe format, and the process of relaunching the 13-year-old neighborhood restaurant
"Ultimately this was a decision rooted in wanting to offer the best possible dining experience with the resources at our fingertips while maintaining as much of the original Frances character as possible," Perello says.
A nonprofit has formed specifically to thwart plans by Another Planet Entertainment to remake the interior of the historic Castro Theatre to be more conducive to live music events — and specifically the group wants to stop a plan to remove all the seats from the theater's main level.
The Academy Award-winning 2008 Harvey Milk biopic 'Milk,' the production of which included on-location shooting in the Castro and the restoration of the Castro Theatre's neon sign, will be screened again at the theater in June as part of a benefit.
For the third year in a row, the Pink Triangle atop Twin Peaks will once again be lit up like a giant gay beacon throughout Pride Month. But this time, it will be more vibrant in the daytime as well.
Plans for the anniversary include a week of screenings featuring iconic films from each decade of the Castro Theatre's history, from June 3 -12, as well as a day of films shot in SF on June 22, the actual anniversary date.
Café Flore was an LGBTQ+ haven in the Castro neighborhood for over 45 years. Now, the space will finally come alive again later this year under a new owner, who was a former customer.
