SF's Zero Waste Mandate


The magnificent historic Bayview Opera House is available for rental for plays, concerts, movie screenings and other performances as well as community events, church functions, parties, meetings, exhibits and workshops.

The recent historic restoration of the Opera House Douglas Fir floor dating back to 1888 has resulted in superb acoustics, especially well suited for acoustic music and spoken word:

"From the very first note of the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra's recent Family Concert at the Bayview Opera House, it was clear to me that something very special was going on! The sound of the orchestra, reflected off the beautiful new wood floor and bouncing around the classic rectangular shape of the large room, was full, rich, and clear. What a wonderful acoustic, exciting and "present"! I have performed in many of the Bay Area's best known concert halls, and I want to tell you that the Bayview Opera House takes a back seat to no one!!
