About Sydney Goldstein Theater

Sydney Goldstein Theater Tickets

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.


All prices include a City Box Office facility fee required by the venue. The Sydney Goldstein Theater does not have an elevator to the Loge or Balcony.

The Nourse is an old school. Balcony seats in rear balcony are not cushioned. Sound and view are just fine. There's no elevator to balcony. Bathroom on first floor so plan ahead

Just a block away, on quite Rose Street, is a French Bistro-like wine bar, Hotel Biron. It's tiny, lowly lit & offers cheese, pate, fruit & nuts to pair with an extensive, multi national wine selection. There are small low tables high tables & two sofas, too!

Share anything else here. Just start typing The major problem is that Nourse Auditorium shares the area with Davies Hall, Opera House, and Herbst and congestion/traffic can be pretty nasty.

We found street parking just before 6 pm (on a Friday night) to save $ on a lot. Then we had time for drinks/apps and dinner before the show.
