It's unfortunate that this beautiful theater is smack in the middle of so many homeless folks on the streets. You almost have to step over them to get to the theater, so sad....
Take public transportation if possible? Parking is expensive and limited
There is a nice tea/chai little place across from the screaming people across the street. There was a happy street artist, a ballet dancer, and good people and one can see the theater from the outdoor seats. DavidChai I think it is called.
the added discussion with other show goers on BART adds to the enjoyment of the show,
Park in the Mason/O'Ferrall garage. It's $10.00. Just show your ticket when you pay at the pay station.
Went to GIbson beforehand... yummmm
Yeah, the area isn't the best, but it's a short enough walk from the Powell BART station, with lots of other theatergoers.
The Fifth & Mission garage is a couple of city blocks away located next to Moscone West, is huge, and the parking is relatively inexpensive ($3-4/hr).
We really enjoyed Montesacro Pinseria-Enoteca st 510 Stevenson St. just a block from the theatre.
We packed sandwiches for the drive up. There aren't many places around Golden Gate Theater to eat and those that are there are packed.
The weather was cool. I wore Casual slacks, sweater, and shoes(no sneakers). .
