The Strand Theater& The Rueff
1127 Market Street
San Francisco, CA 94103
A dynamic and intimate performance complex filled with the creative energy of the most exciting artists of the Bay Area and beyond, The Strand had its much-anticipated opening in spring 2015.
Located directly across from Civic Center’s lively UN Plaza, The Strand boasts a 283-seat theater, a 120-seat event and performance space, and a welcoming lobby and cafe that is open to city residents seeking a new destination in the Central Market neighborhood.
The Strand allows A.C.T. the flexibility to stage an expanded range of productions each season, including specially commissioned new work, cabaret and theater performances by A.C.T.’s M.F.A. Program and Young Conservatory students, educational workshops with school partners, event rentals for community groups, and celebrations for the A.C.T. community.
Most significantly, The Strand allows A.C.T. to deepen its impact on the city and community through the transformative power of theater.
The Strand Theater is located steps away from the Civic Center BART station.
Located a level above The Strand’s Toni Rembe Theater, The Rueff is a 120-seat, 1,500-square-foot space that offers soaring views of City Hall, flexible seating, and a dynamic layout—with the versatility to accommodate performances, education programs, readings, and workshops. Lofty ceilings, a wall of multi-light wooden sash windows, and a prep kitchen and actor's lounge adjacent to the space make The Rueff well equipped for a range of special events.
