Herbst Theatre (CLOSED FOR RENOVATION) Information

Herbst Theatre (CLOSED FOR RENOVATION) - Theater in San Francisco.

(The Herbst Theatre will be closed from May 2013 until fall 2015 for seismic retrofitting and upgrades.)

Located in San Francisco within the War Memorial and Performing Arts Center in Civic Center, the Herbst Theatre is a 928-seat auditorium with an eclectic offering of productions.

The venue was originally designed as the Veterans Auditorium, but was renovated and renamed Herbst Theatre in 1977, honoring brothers Maurice and Herman Herbst, whose foundation funded the refurbishment.

Guests at Herbst Theatre are greeted by eight oversized Beaux-Arts murals originally crafted by Frank Brangwyn for the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition. Flanking the blue and gold-leaf ceiling are five glinting chandeliers.

Among other performances at the Herbst Theatre, the venue serves as host to the City Arts & Lectures, SF Jazz, the Philharmonica Baroque Orchestra and San Francisco Performances.

The Herbst Theatre also has historical significance, serving as the signing spot in 1945 for the United Nations Charter, when fifty founding nations gathered together in the theater following the two-month United Nations conference in the Opera House.

The surrounding area near City Hall offers many large parking lots including Performing Arts Garageon Grove Street at Gough, and the Civic Center Garage on McAllister between Polk and Larkin.
