Disabled Wheelchair Activist & Filmmaker Endorses APE Plans for Castro Theatre 

As a disabled person, advocate, filmmaker and producer, I champion theatre renovations that go beyond minimum accessibility and compliance. I believe Another Planet’s plans for the Castro Theatre do just that by creating a dynamic and flexible space that will accommodate all. 

As a wheelchair user, I am looking forward to the stage access, and perhaps even more novel, a space that can accommodate large numbers of audience members who use mobility devices. Historically, these individuals have been relegated to the back or the sides of theaters, in designated areas with limited seating availability.

If I want to invite disability communities to a show, I now have an inclusive built environment where that can finally happen.
