Named after native San Franciscan and veteran actor, David Warfield, this theater opened in 1922. The Victorian influence can be seen in the architecture and accoutrement, ornate ceiling designs, chandeliers, and wrought-iron balustrades. Gold-leafed opera boxes overlook the palatial stage and the period mural that brightens up the top of the stage.
Early entertainment at the theater included silent films and vaudeville shows featuring Charlie Chaplin, Al Jolson and Rin Tin Tin. After recent renovations, the Warfield is well equipped with modern technical capabilities, a bar and a restaurant and serves as a popular performance venue. Music talent dominates the stage these days, but the theater is appropriate for all types of entertainment functions and is available for bookings.
