1915 - The Jose Theater - 2362 Market Street - A small venue for silent films with piano accompaniment. This little theater was built in 1912 and was converted to a retail business in 1919.

I wonder if the present owners know that their building was once a silent movie house? - Source: S.F. Public Library
