Venue Information

The iconic Castro Theatre is the setting for the majority of Festival screenings. See and be seen beneath the landmark chandelier, settle into the plush seats, and cozy up in the balcony for eleven days of LGBTQ films from around the world. And arrive early! Locals know not to miss the thrill of the Mighty Wurlitzer organ that sets the scene before the lights dim and the films roll.
