The Victoria Theater

This circa-1908 theater, revitalized in recent years, used mostly for live shows and community events, as well as occasional movies. Was once known as the 16th Street Theatre.

Victoria Theatre is a 480-seat in San Francisco's Mission District, which presents locally-produced original plays, live concerts, film festivals, musicals, performances by international performing companies and other kinds of events. The theater is located at 2961 16th Street (at Capp Street) in San Francisco, California. It is not connected to the Red Vic, a repertory movie theater in the Haight.

The Victoria Theatre was originally built in 1908 as Brown's Opera House, showing vaudeville and motion pictures, and was owned by ancestors of the California politicians Pat Brown and Jerry Brown. In the 1940s and 1950s, the theater was named El Teatro Victoria and showed Spanish language movies. From 1963 to 1978, the theater was a burlesque house called the New Follies Burlesk. After renovation in 1978 and reopening in March 1979, it was renamed the Victoria Theatre, and is the oldest operational theatre in San Francisco.
