Editorial: Time for APE to work with the Castro

Reading now: 295

Since the surprising news in January that Another Planet Entertainment was taking over management and programming at the historic Castro Theatre, it's been our hope that APE and Castro stakeholders could work together on everyone's shared goal of rejuvenating a vibrant movie palace in the heart of San Francisco's LGBTQ neighborhood.

Last week, however, the Castro LGBTQ Cultural District and numerous other groups and community leaders sent Gregg Perloff, APE chief executive officer, a letter expressing their concerns and requests.

This wasn't the first attempt at engagement either. Shortly after the announcement was made by APE — which it later admitted that it "fumbled" — cultural district leaders reached out and requested a meeting.
