See also Alcazar Theatre (1885) and Alcazar Theatre (1911) for two earlier SF theaters. The Alcazar Theatre is a 511-seat theatre located at 650 Geary Street, San Francisco, California. The venue is host to many touring productions of Broadway and Off Broadway plays, as well as variety, cabaret, comedians, and other theatrical events of varying quality. Built in 1917 as a Shriner's Temple at a cost of $150,000, the building was designed in Exotic Revival style, looking much like an Islamic temple, by architect T. Patterson Ross. Upon opening, the June 1917 edition of Architect and Engineer described the building as "an adaptation from Alhambra, a building that stands as the highest mark of Arabian art and civilization." It served as a temple until 1970. After the Alcazar Theatre at 260 O'Farrell Street closed on December 31, 1961 and then demolished, this former temple on Geary Street became a legitimate theatre in 1976 and took on the name Alcazar. The structure was gutted in 1982 after attempts to salvage it failed. It reopened in 1993. Standing just west of Union Square, in the heart of the theatre district, the Alcazar has been renovated combining state of the art facilities with the architectural style of the past. The Alcazar Theatre was designated San Francisco Historical Landmark 195 in 1989.
