Answer: Hosting a large variety of cultural events, community gatherings and seasonal celebrations, what is the oldest theater in San Francisco?

Answer: Bayview Opera House

Constructed in 1888, the Bayview Opera House Ruth Williams Memorial Theatre (known affectionately as “the Opera House” or the “BVOH”) is located at 4705 Third Street in the heart of the Bayview Hunters Point district – San Francisco’s most ethnically diverse community. The Opera House is San Francisco’s oldest theater and a registered historical landmark. However, the Opera House is more than just a building. Operated as a community cultural and arts center by the nonprofit Bayview Opera House, Inc., with funding from the San Francisco Arts Commission and public and private donations, the Opera House is a vital community institution for Bayview residents and holds a significant place in the history and culture of Bayview Hunters Point.
