The Castro Theatre opened in mid-1922, built by the Nasser brothers and designed by architect Timothy Pflueger. It was designed for movies, and hence featured minimal stage facilities despite vaudeville still being popular at the time of the theatre’s opening. 100 years after it opened, the theatre is still owned by the Nasser family.
