This is a photo of the historic Harding Theater in its heyday. If you live, work and/or walk along Divisadero Corridor, you know it as “that boarded up old theater” at 616 Divisadero that’s been sitting empty for years.
Developers have come and gone, wanting to demolish the building in its entirety or “remodel” it. The plans always include some form of high-priced condos and lack of community spirit and have been successfully beaten back by the neighborhood.
Now, the neighbors have formed a coalition called Neighbors Developing Divisadero to not only save the Harding Theater from the wrecking ball and overzealous developers, but to take back the Harding Theater, purchase it as a community and turn it into a performance/art/neighborhood space befitting San Francisco’s most eclectic strip.
Take a short survey by July 31 to express your opinions on what type of activities you’d like to see take place in a restored Harding Theater.
This is forward-thinking urban activism at its best. Click here to find out more and get involved in saving and restoring the Harding Theater.
