Thanks to the Chronicle for sharing the unfortunate and sudden news that Landmark’s Embarcadero Center Cinema‘s final day is upon us.

Without any public notice, the indie arthouse theater is shutting its doors ‘unofficially’ on Thursday, February 3. There are no future events or screenings scheduled on their website beyond that date, but no official word has been announced from Landmark.

The 26-year old theater originally opened in 1995 with 5 screens at One Embarcadero Center, Promenade Level. The theater underwent a renovation in 2003 which added in recliner seats, a wine bar, and hosted 7 screens with reduced capacity with more comfortable spacing.

Thankfully, San Francisco still has The Roxie Cinema, Alamo Drafthouse’s New Mission theater, and Cinema SF’s Balboa and Vogue theaters.
