Thanks Steve for the memories of the UA Galaxy Theatre. Was not open long and had THX in 2 of the largest auditoriums. The land around this cinema was worth so much It is now another condo on Van Ness. So many theatres have closed around this area like the Regency 1 & 2 across the street now a music venue and the Royal Theatre on Polk St torn down for condos, they did keep part of the front but took out all the neon blade Royal marquee. The small art Luminare Theatre now gone. A brand new large cinema is going into the space a block away from the former UA Galaxy by a new movie circuit company, lets hope they survive. Lucky we did not have a big earthquake in SF when the Galaxy was open because of the lobby glass. Over the brief years It was open some of the glass did crack and UA just left It in. They had a few pieces of neon inside the glass blocks that lit up but not much. At least the Galaxy had good sound proofing as most of It was made of thick cement blocks.
