The Castro in November

The Castro‘s website kept us in suspense for a long time last month. Up until Halloween, we knew very little about what San Francisco’s revival palace was up to in the new month.

Well, now we know, and if you’re looking for classic cinema, it’s a disappointment. Here are the only 20th-century movies playing November at the Castro:

November 3: A John Carpenter double bill of Big Trouble In Little China and Escape From New York.

November 13:
Stand By Me, on a Stephen King double bill with this year’s It.

November 14: David Lynch’s only family-friendly movie, The Straight Story, on a double bill with this year’s Lucky.

November 18: Romy & Michele’s High School Reunion, in a special show from Peaches Christ Productions.

November 19: Now here’s a great double bill! Rear Window and Blow-Up. Why didn’t anyone else think of this before.

November 22, 24 – 27, 29: Disney’s animated Beauty and the Beast; the sing-along version.

Everything else is off-beat premieres, festivals, and special events.

  1. The first half o the month is not as bad as you make it out to be. Third I and New Italian Cinema are showing films & they are screening 21st century art house/indie films such as the Armistead Maupin doc yesterday plus Tom of Finland, The Force & Detroit.

    I always cringe when I see the Sing-Alongs. Are they so popular that they can screen Beauty & the Beast 17 times in 12 days? That late November/early December calendar is tough for cinephiles. Over a 16 day period, they have 8 days of Sing-Along, 2 days of TBDs, a Commonwealth Club event, an Inforum event, a Peaches Christ production, closed one day, a Hitchcock/Antonioni double feature and the SF Silent Film Festival winter event (not shown on the calendar but it will be December 2).
