Guide to the Festival

San Francisco

The world-famous Castro Theatre will be the stately setting for the majority of Festival screenings. With the grandeur of its elegant chandelier and grand screen, and with its Mighty Wurlitzer sending organ chords thrumming all the way to the back of the balcony, the Castro Theatre is an ideal venue for many of Frameline31’s bigger-than-life feature films.

Over in the Mission District, the thriving neighborhood’s funky flair and international flavors will imbue screenings at the Roxie Film Center and Victoria Theatre with edgy excitement.

Close proximity among these three venues—with tons of great restaurant choices in between—allows for easy to-and-fro frolicking from theatre to theatre, so plan on maximizing your Festival days and nights with plenty of screenings around town.


For the fourth consecutive year we’re back at the spirited Parkway Theater. The Parkway offers a full café menu featuring pizza, sandwiches and beer. Due to alcohol service, no one under 21 will be admitted to Parkway screenings. That is, unless you are under 12 months old; Frameline31 and the Parkway will host a special “Baby Brigade” screening of Four Minutes on Monday, June 18, for parents, friends and infants under 12 months. (Please, no babes in arms for other screenings.)
