The property that housed the Red Vic Movie House on Haight Street in San Francisco could become a space to go for drinks and for food startups to grow.

An owner of the building tells the blog Tablehopper about the plans for the Red Vic, which shuttered this year after 31 years of being in business.

Co-owner of the building Betsy Rix tells Tablehopper that part of the plans call for The Alembic to extend its bar into the lobby.

Along with more drinking space for Haight Street bar hoppers, the building could also feature rooms to rent out to food-related startups that are not ready for their own stand-alone locations. Rix mentioned 331 Cortland Marketplace as an inspiration for the idea.

Rix also said the post-theater space could be used for a CSA (community-supported agriculture) box drop-off locations and include an event space for music, film and artist events.
