Conveniently located in the San Francisco Performing Arts District, the Sydney Goldstein Theater, formerly Nourse Theater, is a historic landmark in itself, apart from being an entertainment venue. Built in the year 1926, the theater plays host to stand up comedy, plays, concerts and is mostly renowned for lecture series by City Arts & Lectures. Constructed in Spanish Revival style, the bright red awnings and classical decor adds a traditional charm to the venue. Ornate chandeliers shed light on the bright red seats and a proscenium stage with bright red curtains. All these elements lend themselves nicely to a classical concert or a period drama. Renamed after Sydney Goldstein, the theater is a cultural symbol of San Francisco.
