Cheetah, Na’vi, Tiger, Cheetah: The O’Farrell Theatre is “Where the Wild Girls Are” in Our Crime-Ridden Tenderloin

Mitchell Brothers O’Farrell Theatre Celebrates 40 Years in San Francisco

Sunday, March 8th, 2009

What used to be a Pontiac (a brand of car, kids, back when San Francisco had an Auto Row) dealership changed to Mitchell Brothers O’Farrell Theatre in 1969 and the Tenderloin hasn’t been the same since.

Did one of the brothers shoot and kill the other? Sadly, yes. Did Mayor Diane Feinstein drop by one day? Gladly, yes.

Just read the Yelp reviews to see if its worth your $40 to enter.

Happy Birthday, MB!
