I would like to add some more about the Stonestown Cinema and correct some of the ""points"" made about this theatre. The Theatre was completed in 1971 and opened as the UA Cinema...

Editorial review from Citysearch 3/18/2014

Masdaras is right. It is an old theatre and has much wear and tear. To charge 11 dollars to see an old movie is EFFIN ridiculous. That being said, let me say a few things. \r \r The theatre is super cool. An old school relic of the 70s/80s. I love these. BUT! and this is a huge but! They usually cost 3-5 bux now. I mean, this place shows second run films. 12 Years a Slave, is playing now. for the same price it cost on opening weekend, in the big theatres. And now its at redbox and online. come on guys!\r \r I only paid to see it, cuz I wanted to see it on the big screen. and that is cool. but, overall, the owners of this place are trippin!!!\r \r IMHO, they should embrace the oldness of the place, and charge 4-5 dollars to see second run films. make the money on the consessions. EVEN better! sell beer and wine. maybe pizza by the slice. this is HUGE in portland OR and Seattle. why not here in SF?? \r DO IT DO IT DO IT!!! more

Such A Disappoinment! 8/15/2009

When you get in for the first time, I hope you won’t have the feeling of running away out! My concern is JUSTICE! Justice of movie ticket cost against building condition. Ticket price is the same as THOSE modern and advanced theaters like Century in Tanfuran Mall or in SFO's Westfield or even Lowe's Metreon. The seats are too old, the inside smells filthy and not to mention scary-haunted feeling with an eerri yacky ghost bump. Given the fact that the building is a remnant of the ‘70’s, COM ‘on, management should have bargained the movie ticket price to at least 30% TO GIVE JUSTICE TO ITS DELAPETDATED THEATR. more

Fact Check 9/30/2008

I would like to add some more about the Stonestown Cinema and correct some of the ""points"" made about this theatre. The Theatre was completed in 1971 and opened as the UA Cinema Stonestown. It replaced Larry Barrett's Chevron dealership and tire company which had been there for years. In 1974 the theatre was cut into two seperate houses and then became known as the UA Cinema Stonestown Twin. Dorothy Zubach, a veteran movie house manager and reputed (she at least claimed) former Zigfield Follies Dancer was the Manager throughout the 70's and Mid 80's. I was a Doorman/Usher there in high school and sometimes on colleage breaks from the mid 70's until about 1979. Fun job as a kid and within walking distance of my house. I now live back in the neighborhood and was amazed to see a couple of years ago when attending a movie there that the cashier at the ticket window was someone who I have worked with there in the 70's that was still employed there. I guess that shows tenure and it was a nice place to work! Pros: parking, size of screens Cons: movie selection more

  • In Short
    On the periphery of the Stonestown Mall just north of San Francisco State University, this theater is, unfortunately, unattractive. As attested to by the square columns...
