Say goodbye to the blighted Alexandria Theater on Geary. This morning the RichmondblogSF reported that the crumbling theater has been sold to a development group that already has City-approved plans to change the property into commercial and residential properties -- and one of these includes a new, smaller theater.
When asked if the property will have a partnership with the Alamo Drafthouse, which we reported on last week, the new owners said they are currently focused on consulting with San Francisco Neighborhood Theater Foundation about the theater.
And over in Fisherman's Wharf, NBC Bay Area reports the Embarcadero was closed this morning while the Rock filmed scenes in front of the Rock for the new earthquake movie San Andreas. NBC also shared, that while most of the movie is being filmed in Australia, today's City filming will be followed by another day of filming extras screaming and running down Russian Hill. We can only imagine what they could possibly be running from. A tumbling Transamerica building? A tsunami? Maybe both?
