Previous Names: California Theatre, Allies Theatre, Crescent Theatre, World Theatre
Opened as the California Theatre in San Francisco’s North Beach District in 1909; it was soon renamed the Liberty Theatre the following year, then briefly became the Allies Theatre around 1920, and the Crescent Theatre in the mid-1920’s, but reverted back to Liberty Theatre in 1926.
When the Capitol (qv) closed in 1941, the Capitol Follies Burlesque moved over to the Liberty Theatre and prospered there during the 1940’s, helped no doubt by the large number of military and transient personnel visiting San Francisco during World War II.
Its burlesque days ended after the war, and on March 11, 1949 it was re-christened the World Theatre, with a foreign film policy.
In April 1953 it closed, and was torn down. At this time, the name World moved across the street to the former Verdi Theatre which continued the foreign film policy, eventually narrowing down to Chinese films.
