The Golden Gate Theatre is a performance venue located in San Francisco, CA., first opened in 1922 as a vaudeville venue, and later was a major movie theater. In the 1960s it boasted a Cinerama screen, but by the early 1970s had declined to the point of showing blaxploitation films; it was restored and reopened as a performing arts venue in the late 1970s.
The Golden Gate, as well as the Orpheum theatre in San Francisco are owned by SHN, a theatrical producing company owed by Carole Shorenstein Hays and Robert Nederlander. SHN has presented many Broadway shows at The Golden Gate such as A Chorus Line, Sweeney Todd, Stomp, Hairspray, Mamma Mia!, Chicago, Rent. The theatre also had the preview engagement of Legally Blonde: The Musical before it went to Broadway.
On June 27, 2013 WeWork officially opened their second San Francisco location in the six floors above the theater. This new WeWork Golden Gate location will provide collaborative workspace for approximately 200 small businesses and startups.
