There was a time when a big movie like Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull would open at a place like the now-deceased Coronet Theater. But The Castro was doing pretty well for itself last night with a packed house on the first day of the new Indy.
Bullwhip? (Doesn’t everybody in San Francisco have one already?) Free.
Costco drinking water? $.12 plus $.05 CRV.
Fedora? $29.97 from Lucky Supermarket.
Memories of entertaining the long lines of people waiting to get a good seat? Priceless.
View from the balcony includes an old-skool organist and a proper chandelier
So turn up your hearing aid (if you have one, as the Castro Theatre’s sound system seems a tad on the quiet side) and get on out there!
