Balboa Street busy in October; Fundraiser for Balboa Theater

There will be numerous events in theOuter Richmond District in October, including

a benefit show for the historic Balboa Theater.


The theater has been struggling to survive in changing times. It has boosted attendance

through its popular “popcorn palace” movies on Saturday mornings, “The Beer Movie”

and the Balboa classic series, but it has not been enough to sustain operations.


The benefit event will be held at the Balboa Theater, located on Balboa Street near

37th Avenue, on Thursday, Oct. 19. For more information, go to the Facebook event page

SF Council of District Merchants, a “fun walk” to discover Balboa Village;


• Oct. 28, there will be a ‘Balbooa’ Halloween event with local students and merchants

trick-or-treating. Costumes are encouraged and there will be a scavenger hunt, games,

petting zoo and more;


• All month long Noise Records, located on Balboa Street at 36th Avenue, will have live

jazz music on Sundays, from 2-6 p.m.;


• On Wednesday nights there will be merchant specials, including $4 beers at
