Farewell to the Galaxy

The Galaxy theater, on Van Ness Avenue, is slated for demolition.

Closed since 2005, this would’ve happened long ago, but the sorry state of the economy slows things down.

They got the date wrong. I believe 9/1 is the earliest possible date for demolition.

I remember when the Galaxy was the new theater, riding past in my dad’s car, going ‘Wow! Look at that fancy modern building!’

Here’s an artist’s rendering of one proposed replacement. Grocery store on the ground floor, condos above.

Odd combination of things on the sidewalk in front of the Galaxy  yesterday: shin guards, plastic sprinkler head, broken car tail  light, barrette for woman’s hair, and a curtain. What’s the story?
