San Francisco’s Golden Gate Theatre exudes the essence of a sacred monument. It is situated at 1 Taylor Street, intersected at an angle between Market Street and Golden Gate Avenue. The Golden Gate Theatre was built by G. Albert Lansburgh in the 1920’s. The theatre showed silent films for over 50 years. During the 1960’s, it was converted into a two-screen theatre. It suffered little damage, restored as a single auditorium and reopened in 1979 as a Performing Arts Center and continuous to host performances. Yet the exterior façade needs an uplift and would be ideal to showcase its neon lights as this grand structure has a marvelous Art Deco sign. This time the Golden Gate Theatre, is surrounded by a bright mint green sky.
This painting was first exhibited at the San Francisco Flower Mart in 2013, and is exhibited thereafter at the Healdsburg Hotel flower shop in Healdsburg, CA. Golden Gate Theatre is featured in Araujo's book publication, SOMA RISING, in 2012.
