Sad news for the dozen or so folks who still leave their homes to watch movies. The Richmond District's Balboa Theatre owner Gary Meyer said that this summer he will be leaving his post as operator of the theater, leaving the future of the independent theater in doubt. Meyer said that other obligations and expensive theater upgrades made it difficult to continue as the owner of the Balboa. "I made the decision that in mid-August I will be giving up the theater. My hope is that the theater will survive," Meyer said. [SF Gate/photo via Frank Kelsey]
