Sing-A-Long-A Movies Are Back at The Castro (The Sound of Music)
Many panicked at the news that the Castro Theatre was taken over by a concert promoter which planned to “improve” the historic theater to give it flexibility to host a wider variety of events. It was feared that the neighborhood icon, originally built in 1922, would stop hosting movie nights. The promoters assure us that movies will be back after a lengthy upcoming renovation which could close the theater for 6-8 months. Before we say a temporary “so long, farewell,” The Castro welcomes back one of its most beloved film events with a sing-along version The Sound of Music. And although I have confidence films will return, you may want to get your Do-Re-Mi’s in, just in case.
