Built in 1927, the Sydney Goldstein Theater is a landmark venue located in the heart of San Francisco’s performing arts district (across the street from Davies Hall musicians’ entrance). City Arts & Lectures restored and reopen the stunning 1,687-seat hall in 2013 (it was closed to the public for over thirty years).  The hall features original architectural details, excellent acoustics, and a well-designed layout with unobstructed views throughout the orchestra and balcony, as well as state of the art lighting, a Meyer Sound system, new curtains, plush upholstered seats, newly decorated green room, and a dressing room.  The Sydney Goldstein Theater is an ideal venue for a wide range of performances and a uniquely beautiful setting.

Assisted listening devices are available (Listen LT-800, LR-400 and LA-165) on 72 MHz.
