Don’t be Such an Emo – Get Out and Celebrate the Giant EMO Buttons of Lucasfilm, Letterman Digital Arts Center!

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

What would you make of things if you were hanging out in the Presidio and came across this giant cartoonish button?

You’d get on the Yelp and award Five Stars, as so many others have done before you.

Check out what Serge has to say:

“YES! I am glad that I was not the only one to notice this.  First time I walked around the Letterman Digital Arts Center these buttons stood out like a sore emo thumb.  Has anyone ever pressed one? Will the creek flood with emo kids? Will the water run red from razor cut wrists? Will a dark cloud cover the park as the trees die and pigeons turn to black crows?  WHO KNOWS!”

Via A.J.

Bon courage, giant cartoonish EMO buttons of the Presidio!

Finally, Tower Crane Replaces Coronet Theatre. Soon, Senior Housing on Geary

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

Famed five-star Yelp-rated Coronet Theatre at 3575 Geary near Palm Avenue in the Inner Richmond district done closed down with a final showing of Million Dollar Baby on March 17, 2005. Did people camp out for ages to be first in line for a Star Wars movie premier back in the day? Oh yes. But that’s all history now.

These days, straight-out-of-Hayward Peck and Hiller is laying concrete For The Future, which will take form of a building from the Institute on Aging for housing seniors. We shall take a look-see, non?

The mise-en-scene. Click to expand:

Let’s take a peek up there at The Toughest Job You’ll Ever Love. This tower crane operator sits and stands to make everything work.

Rebar sailing above Geary Boulevard. Mind the spilled motor oil

Burly construction workers are on hand to protect the Porta-Potties from the One Who Shant Be Named:

And here’s what it will all look like, if you can see past the chain link and graffiti:

It’s too bad we lost the Coronet, but just try filling a 1300-seat one-screen theater in this Day and Age.

Get ready for the Inner Richmond, seniors!

And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Coronet, Coronet the Great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all bay areans have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her projection, and the kings of Hollywood have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the Earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

New Indiana Jones Movie a Huge Hit at the Castro Theatre

Friday, May 23rd, 2008

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.

Don’t forget to complete your Indiana Experience by purchasing LEGO Indiana Jones Adventures. All the cool kids are doing it!

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!
