Tony Molina at Vogue Theatre

Tony Molina works the ticket booth at the Vogue Theatre in 2005.

For nearly two decades, Tony Molina quietly plied his trade at the Vogue Theatre, a boutique cinema on Sacramento Street in San Francisco. As part of his duties, Molina worked the concession stand, took tickets, operated the projector and cleaned up after everyone left, frequently working by himself to keep the independent operation running. 

Yet unknown to most moviegoers at the Vogue, Molina was also a full-time musician — a nationally recognized artist who’s long been an anchor of the Bay Area’s punk and hardcore scene (and who has since mastered the art of the ultrashort power pop song.)
