In the April Eureka! we reported that the newly restored CASTRO Theatre marquee has been hit not once, but twice since the recent restoration to its classic 70's appearance as part of the filming of the movie MILK. One of the collisions broke some of the newly installed neon lighting tubes. The Castro Theater is designated San Francisco Landmark No. 100.
We are happy to report that an interim solution has been agreed upon by the merchants, the city and the Theatre. Two large trees in big containers will be placed out in the street, one on each end of the Marquee. Because the street sweeping machines will not be able to sweep between the containers, the theatre will be responsible for cleaning the street between them. A long term solution will be a welcome part of a Castro Street capital improvement plan.
