The Herbst Theatre, located in the center of the War Memorial Veterans Building, is a vital and active performance venue for numerous organizations presenting a wide range of artistic, cultural and entertainment programming. Originally designed as the Veterans Auditorium, the theatre was refurbished and renamed Herbst Theatre in 1977. It was on this stage that the United Nations Charter was signed on June 26, 1945, making the Herbst Theatre of singular and international historic importance.
Currently being renovated and scheduled for reopening in late 2015, the Herbst Theatre is a cornerstone of San Francisco performing arts, with more than 200 shows presented on its stage every year.
