The Balboa Theatre is the oldest running movie theater in San Francisco: it was built in 1926, and has stayed in that location for 91 years. The interior did get a little damaged by a fire in 1978, but its character was rebuilt and now the Balboa Theatre is more than just a place to watch films. It’s a time machine, a memory stood still, part of what makes San Francisco so idealistically pure.

But with time, people get distracted — this year especially has been full of them. These distractions take a toll on the community. Local non-profits get less money, and theaters that are staples to the community have a drop in attendance. The Balboa has gone through so much, but now it’s up to us to put it back on the map. And one way to do that — the best way — is with music and art. So join dozens of local artists and musicians in a Balboa Benefit! 

Live music by UNITY (Oakland), Pardoner (SF), Sirena Victima (SF) and Share (SF).

They will also be celebrating the release of Pardoner’s debut LP “Uncontrollable Salvation” via Father/Daughter Records.
