Please sign this petition to stop them from changing the seating in our lovely, historic movie palace. I think all the fans of the Castro Theatre were concerned this might be the plan. Thanks.

From Leah Garchik

“Maybe we sat alongside each other watching a film festival movie at the Castro. I was the one loudly singing along with the organist playing “San Francisco” before the film started. I was the one in tears by the time the movie was over. I was the one with unwarranted pride when the young filmmaker said he’d never imagined the pleasure of seeing his work shown in such a cinematic palace. Sitting there, I somehow felt that I was a San Franciscan, and so the Castro belonged to me. That’s why I’ve signed up for, hoping to preserve this community gathering place as a movie theater, and that’s why you — a fan of movies who cherishes tradition — should, too.”
