A HISTORIC VENUE REBORN IN DOWNTOWN SAN FRANCISCO

Live music and entertainment with special events, three full bars, and food by Fifth Arrow. August Hall has been built to be a flexible, multidisciplinary event space with a design that pays homage to the great history of the building. August Hall & Fifth Arrow house three distinct rooms and three lanes of bowling.

history title

After the great earthquake of 1906, Union Square became San Francisco's premier shopping district, and, by the 1930s, the site of the world's first underground parking structure. 420 Mason Street was originally built in the 1890s as a Victorian Playhouse by celebrated architect August Headman. In the 1940s it became a USO club called the "Stage Door."

Later it started showing films as the "Stage Door Theatre" and hosted the premiere of the Alfred Hitchcock film Vertigo on May 9, 1958.

By the early 1980s, it had become the Regency III movie theater (the Regency I and II were located several blocks away) before becoming Ruby Skye.
