In October 2012, San Francisco Playhouse moved into a new home! We moved into a beautiful 199-seat theatre at 450 Post Street on the second floor of the Kensington Park Hotel at the start of our 10th anniversary season.
In 1982, noted local theatre architect Eugene Angell transformed the second-story Elks Lodge and its flat-floored assembly hall into a state-of-the-art theatre. Originally constructed in 1924 by the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, the Spanish-Gothic structure now houses the Kensington Park Hotel, Farallon Restaurant, the theatre and various shops.
To maintain the intimate theater experience it’s known for, San Francisco Playhouse reduced the current seating to nine rows, converting the 400 seat theatre to 199 seats. A new stage was built and the lobby & bar area got a facelift, making the new venue the most exciting destination in San Francisco’s Theatre District.
