About Nourse Theater
Built in 1927, the Nourse is a landmark venue located in the heart of San Francisco’s performing arts district. The hall was closed to the public for over 30 years. In 2012, City Arts & Lectures began a restoration project and re-introduced the theater anew. The hall features excellent acoustics, a well-designed layout offering unobstructed views throughout the orchestra and balcony, and original architectural details. The 1600-seat venue famously hosts conversations and lectures featuring a compelling array of luminaries — from entertainers to artists to scholars to statesmen.
No bottles, cans, alcohol, cameras, or recording equipment allowed.
