Best Indie Movie Theater San Francisco 2007 - Red Vic Movie House - CLOSED
1727 Haight St.
San Francisco, CA 94117
It's got those funky couches. It sells tasty snacks ranging from hot, buttery popcorn to organic treats. It's worker-owned and -operated. And for God sakes, it's just all bright red outside and lovable inside kind of like the Clifford the Big Red Dog of theaters. The Red Vic actually shows good movies, too, screening everything from documentaries (with directors or producers present, when possible) to foreign films (think Pedro Almod?var at his best). And the Red Vic doesn't take itself too seriously, meaning they know theater goers can appreciate The Big Lebowski and other unforgettable classics. Just don't dawdle too much before show times, because lines at the Red Vic can get awfully long, especially on weekends, and those couches often fill up fast.
