New Mission theater approved for renovation!

Shuttered since 1993, New Mission theater now has the green light to become an Alamo Drafthouse! 

New Mission theater approved for renovation!

In a 5-to-1 vote on Thursday, the City Planning Commission gave final approval to our renovation of the beautiful New Mission theater and we couldn't be more thrilled! In regular Drafthouse style, New Mission will be modeled into a full restaurant and bar with one 348 seat theater and four smaller accompanying theaters.

We still have a long road in front of us; seismic upgrades and the historic nature of the renovation make this a challenging project. Nonetheless, we are ecstatic about marching forward to San Francisco at the New Mission. Expect many more updates on our homepage & blog and on our Twitter and Facebook pages as we make progress.
