Part of what makes the Castro Theater such a treasure is the programming. This month for example there were three days of a sing-a-long screening of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast then drag performer Miss Coco Peru the next day followed by Django Unchained. I’m happy to see that in that eclectic mix of films and performances that classic films, Oscar winners, film festivals and foreign films all have a grand film palace for people to see them as they’re meant to be seen: on the big screen.
