A Historic Union Square Theatre

Welcome to Marines’ Memorial Theatre

Built in 1926, the historic Marines’ Memorial Theatre is an intimate 564-seat jewel box theatre located in the heart of San Francisco's theatre district between Union Square and Nob Hill. Recently renovated to expand the lobby and upgrade the orchestra seating to be much more comfortable, our historic Union Square theatre is available as a setting for events in San Francisco, including keynotes, celebrations, educational presentations and more. We are also dedicated to bringing the best national, international and local Music, Dance, Author Talks & Lectures and theatrical or film presentations to Bay Area audiences.

Marines’ Memorial Theatre has a rich history, with many classic events in its past. In addition to being the former home of the Actors Workshop and American Conservatory Theatre, our theatre has hosted presentations by legendary performers such as Jack Benny, Bob Hope, Jean Stapleton, Lynn Redgrave, and many others.

To reserve the theatre for your entertainment, corporate, civic or educational events in San Francisco, please submit an online inquiry/request for proposal.
