Photos of the New Mission Theater

*Special thanks to Christopher VerPlanck for the use of his black and white photos of the interior that speak to the theater's present day neglect while still revealing a sense of the scale and extant detail in the Mission 's last remaining movie palace, The New Mission Theater.

Historical photos of the New Mission dating from 1943 can be found at the SF Public Library website.
