CinemaSF is born; Gary Meyer officially steps down from the Balboa Theater Posted on February 10, 2012 by Sarah B.
Last night, CinemaSF - the new name for the two theater chain of the Balboa and Vogue Theaters - sent out a newsletter that included a long sign-off letter from the Director of the Balboa, Gary Meyer.
Meyer has been running the Balboa Theater since 2001, when he took over management from the Levin family owners. At the time, the Balboa was showing second run movies and barely making ends meet. Meyer knew he needed to take on a different strategy to revive the old movie house, which had been in business since 1926.
Since taking it over, Meyer has built a loyal audience for the theater and made it a thriving part of the Richmond District community. He's also brought some exciting, innovative programming to the theater ranging from the premieres of historic documentaries, screenings of operas and ballets, special award show screenings for the Golden Globes and Oscars, along with community building events like free HD viewing of the Superbowl just last week.
It was last July when Meyer first announced that he would be stepping down from his leadership post at the Balboa.
"After spending time with them it was clear that they had the passion required," Meyer write.
Meyer will also stay on as a consultant to SFCinema, helping them plan the future for both the Balboa and the Vogue Theaters.
Gary Meyer will still be around at times (like at the Balboa's 86th birthday bash on March 4), saying in his letter, "I look forward to seeing many of you but this time I will be with you in the audience."
Sincere thank yous to Mr. Meyer, and best of luck to Adam and Jaimi.
Three cheers to Gary for working so hard to find someone to run the cinema and not abondoning it! The marquee looks great and heating felt awesome at my last viewing experience on Friday. I have good feelings that this will become a viable, solid anchor to our 'hood.

Thank you Gary for years of sublime pleasure of seeing amazing films at The Balboa.
Gary Meyer is definitely one of the good guys! Gary ran one of the best rep movie theatres in the country the U.C. on University Avenue for several years and from that sprung the nationwide Landmark Theatre chain with Gary one of the co-founders. He knows and loves movies and the movie theatre business like very few other people. Without him taking on the Balboa it would most likely now be a Walgreen's drug store or some other non movie theatre retail establishment. Nice to know he left it in good hands and it's future is secure for a long while, even in this digital multiplex top 20 aim for the lowest common denominator Blu-ray Netflix streaming video texting and talking movie theatre world. If anybody knows what I just said will they please explain it to me! Good luck Gary!

The new cinemas will not have such community figures as Gary Meyer, owner of the Balboa Theatre, and one of the Left in the Dark authors.

As Gary has explained, market forces are making it almost impossible for small houses to financially exist without additional sources of income such as a cafe, pizza and beer, or donations.
Left in the Dark will be compromised of about fifty photographs and ten chapters bringing together such cultural leaders as Rebecca Solnit, Liz Keim, Joshua Grannell (also known as Peaches Christ), Anita Monga, Gary Meyer, and Eddie Muller.
