City Arts & Lectures is restoring the Nourse Theater, a stunning 1693-seat hall closed to the public for over thirty years. Located in the heart of San Francisco’s Performing Arts Center, it is an ideal venue for our programs as well as those of other presenters. Thanks to the generosity of our audience and supporters, we’ve raised $1,070,000 of the $1,125,000 needed to complete the project. To contribute, call 415-563-2463.
