ABOUT THE NOURSE

Built in 1927, the Nourse [275 Hayes Street] is a landmark venue located in the heart of San Francisco’s performing arts district (across the street from Davies Hall musicians’ entrance).  The hall has been closed to the public for over thirty years.  In 2012, City Arts & Lectures began a restoration project and is delighted to be bringing the theater back to public use.  The hall features excellent acoustics, a well-designed layout offering unobstructed views throughout the orchestra and balcony, and original architectural details.  City Arts & Lectures has refurbished the 1600-seat hall, installing state of the art lighting and high quality sound equipment including Meyer speakers, new curtains, plush upholstered seats, newly decorated green room, and a dressing room.  The Nourse is an ideal venue for a wide range of performances and a uniquely beautiful setting.
