The historic Great Star Theater has been undergoing renovations and cleaning and is now open. This has been a community-driven effort, and we welcome any help, donations, or volunteers. Want to be one of the first to perform in this beautifully refreshed venue? Find venue rental details here. Want to contribute to the cause? We just launched a Patreon for donations as well as monthly memberships that have great perks like buy-one-get-one-free show tickets or private screenings for our rennovations and cleanup efforts. We would also love to help take any old theater, sound, or lighting equipment off your hands as a tax-deductable donation.
This is an exciting new beginning in these challenging times. We hope you can join us to celebrate the end of the pandemic in style. Sign up to our email newsletter or follow us on Instagram or Facebook to keep up to date, and we hope to see you there!
Built in 1925, the 500-seat Great Star Theater is the only remaining theater in San Francisco's Chinatown. Throughout the years it has hosted countless Chinese operas, Chinese movies, local artists, and amazing musical, circus, and variety performers from the world over.
We are working to preserve that monumental history while also bringing fresh life to this beloved venue. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit community theater which strives to ensure local theater, cabaret, variety, and Chinese opera has a home in San Francisco. We are restoring and operating this historic venue as well as partnering with local artists to produce live shows and keep local arts alive amidst these unprecedented times.
