Thanks Steve for this fine photo. The Embassy Theatre had just been remodeled with new curtains and a great stereo surround system. Then the earthquake came and did some roof damage. This theatre could have been saved but the property owners tore It down fast almost overnight. Now It’s just a vacant lot. We need a good second run B grindhouse on Market ST these days. Bring back the Hub, Pix & Regal Theatres. The only cinema left on Market St is the semi new Cinemark Cinema 9 and they don’t even have a sign or marquee out front. The tourists have no idea a cinema is in the building at Powell & Market St. These old cinemas like the Embassy Theatre were proud to show you what they had playing on their marquee and poster cases. Thanks again for sharing the photo.

Hi terrywade – Thanks for your comments. Somewhere in my slide collection I have a shot of manager Dan McLean onstage with the Ten-0-Win wheel. Will post it when I find it. I am still in SF, 46+ years now, and also lament the lack of movie theaters on Market St.
