in Music News by

Another Planet Entertainment (APE) is partnering with Bay Properties, Inc., owners of the Castro Theatre, on an evolution of San Francisco’s world-renowned entertainment landmark.

APE is now the proud new operator and exclusive promoter of the Castro Theatre. With a long-standing history of working to preserve and improve historic buildings such as the Fox Theater in Oakland, the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, and the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, APE seeks to enhance the Castro Theatre by implementing significant improvements to the sound, lighting, production, HVAC and the theatre’s trademark marquee, among other facets of the building.  

“The Castro Theatre is a wonderful building that we will upgrade for more use in the future,” says Gregg Perloff, Another Planet Entertainment, CEO and Co-Founder. “We want to activate and re-energize the building, making improvements to the customer and artist experience, including dressing room upgrades, restoring the marquee and blade and expanding food and beverage service. We want to present all sorts of programming in the theater – comedy, music, film, community and private events and more. We look forward to further contributing to the culture and economy of this vibrant neighborhood.”
