Handy little neighborhood theater. Shows first run movies and Indies and oldies. Good popcorn. Manager didn't seem to be down the Group on though. Only honored it for tickets.

On a mild February day in 1926, San Francisco theater magnate Samuel\

\ H. Levin address an anxious crowd of cinemagoers at the opening of his newest\

\ movie house. Ever the family man, Levin saw himself as a man providing entertainment\

\ for all ages. "In the New Balboa, as in all my theaters," he said, "I seek\

\ to supply the comforts and intimate surroundings \nassociated with the higher\

\ ideals of home life."


Nearly 100 years later, the lights of the Balboa\

\ Theatre's maquee still burn against the night sky, calling patrons into a cozy\

\ cinema suffuse with classic designs pulled from the Golden Age of Hollywood. However,\

\ these historical flourishes belie the modern innovations behind the scenes. The\

\ theatre was completely overhauled in 2011, with technicians retrofitting each\

\ auditorium with state-of-the-art digital sound and projection systems.


This technological refresher helps the Balboa continue its main mission: showcasing\ \ must-see movies. These often take the form of first-run blockbusters, but the\ \ Balboa doesn't simply mimic the faceless megaplexes. Family films, motion-picture\ \ classics, and buzzed-about documentaries all find a place on the theater's twin\ \ screens, celebrating both the film world's diversity and the Balboa's original\ \ purpose.
