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
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!
