Last Call for the Historic Clay Theatre
Built in 1910, San Francisco's Clay Theatre, a single-screen cultural institution on Fillmore Street in Pacific Heights, will close its doors, presumably for the last time, this weekend.
Though the San Francisco Film Society offered to buy the theater or to pay for the lease that Landmark Theatres has held since 1991, their overtures were rebuffed by the Clay's landlord, Balgobind Jaiswal. The future of the space remains unclear.
Those wishing to pay their last respects can do so Sunday evening, when the theater will bow out with an 8 p.m. screening of Radu Mihaileanu's romantic comedy The Concert.
