Best Place to Wait for the Movie to Start at the Castro - 2001
You never know how popular a movie is going to be at this theater until you can actually see the length of the line stretching down Castro Street. But you do know you're going to be hungry right before the movie and that you need a place to rendezvous with your fellow cinemagoers. Solution: Meet 'em at Marcello's pizzeria right across the street, where you can not only satisfy your cravings for something filling and delicious, but you can check out the expanding crowd from the warmth and relative comfort of a window seat. The food's ready fast, and you can get your slice to go if you have to make a quick dash to the box office. Best of all, the staff is friendly and accommodating, and the pizza -- especially the rosemary and red potato with garlic and mozzarella -- is delightful.
