The Warfield is a 2250 person venue with over 86 years of culturally rich history. Opened on May 13, 1922 and built by showman and theatre chain owner Marcus Loew, who named the showplace after his old friend David Warfield, a native San Franciscan who began as an usher and grew to be one of the greatest silent film actors of his time. Originally a theater, The Warfield became open as a concert hall in 1979 when a 2 week showing of Bob Dylan was booked by Bill Graham Presents. Located in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco, The Warfield is within walking distance of City Impact and many of the outreaches.
