Catch Seafood Restaurant in the Castro supports the arts and theater.

Catch is a strong supporter of the arts and the theater community

As film aficionados from all over the planet converge on the City for the San Francisco International Film Festival, Jewish Film Festival, and Frameline (LGBT) Film Festival, Catch is ready to take them in.

The San Francisco seafood restaurant is conveniently located just a block from Castro Theatre. Its covered patio is also like a theater where diners can watch a parade of Castro denizens and visitors march past the restaurant slightly obscured by a screen of clear plastic sheets that separate the patio from the pavement. In the evening, the street comes alive with colorful lights.

The brick walls, strung sunflower lights lighted bar, glass waterfalls that oscillate between magenta and lavender set an artistic tone, ideal for debating film plots, direction, and performances.

For being such a stylish restaurant, the attire is surprisingly informal—even casual, with diners sporting cowboy hats, baseball caps, open shirts, and jeans galore.

“Catch is a strong supporter of the arts and the theater community,” said Sanjay Gujral, owner of Catch Seafood Restaurant.
