For movie palace fans, the castro is a dream come true. This 1920's deco/spanish/baroque theatre is an architectural marvel and it is sad that so many of these fine movie houses are gone forever. Before each show, the original organ rises from the orchestra pit and an organist plays a few old silent movie scores to the apreciative crowd. This is a majical place, especially when it is full. I ususally try to go to movie palaces in every city I visit. This is one of the best. Check it out!
Also, have a sip of water from the wonderful deco drinking fountains in the lobby.
