Clay Theatre Ends 100-Year Run

The final credits rolled Jan. 26 at the Pacific Heights movie house Clay Theatre, bringing an end to more than a century of films. The Art Deco cinema, part of the Landmark Theatres chain, had flirted with closing a couple times in the past, but this time the curtain came down for good.
