The Bayview Opera House is temporarily closed but our hearts and minds are open.

Family, Friends, Neighbors, and Community,

It is with a heavy heart that we let you know that the Bayview Opera House is temporarily closed.  Today Tuesday 3/17/2020, in accordance with the shelter in place measures outlined by local and state officials concerning COVID-19, The Bayview Opera House Ruth Williams Memorial Theatre will be closed temporarily until the shelter in place measures are lifted.

To protect the health and safety of our community our BVOH staff is working from home. Despite our remote work location, we are all still committed to nurturing the community through creativity.  We will be monitoring emails and phone messages and we can be reached at or 415-824-0386.

We are also taking this moment as an opportunity to develop ideas and programs that use technology to bring people together to remind us that even though we are separated physically our community is strong and very much intact.

Here are some resources:
Breakfast Lunch and supper for San Francisco Families
Resources for artists and freelancers

Below is one of our favorite Emory Douglas images and in case anyone needs reminding "We Shall Survive. Without a Doubt."
