This is one of San Francisco's urban renewal successes. In the 60s this was the site of a rundown wholesale food market, but that got swept away and replaced by these office buildings, hotels and a shopping center. The center works best for food and...More

Great lounge chair seating in small theatre venue in the Embarcadero Cinema at 1 Embarcadero. Would expect only the best viewing experience in this sybaritic center of the tech world. Wine and beer available for your theatre enjoyment.

We went during the day to the holiday ice skating rink at the Embarcadero. It gets busier at night. Its a fun place to go. The Embarcadero Center is also fun to shop at, dine at, and go to movies. Christmas decorations were up.

Very comfortable, nice movie theatre. So much nicer than the Sundance Kabuki. I highly recommend it. Chairs are assigned so that you do not have to rush to the theatre early to sit in a good location. Staff is very polite and considerate. Very clean....More
