Supes OK Shelton Theater liquor license

The Shelton Theater was successful in its application for securing one of those coveted liquor licenses.

The theater, located at 533 Sutter Street, will now be able to serve beer and wine, after the Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the liquor license Tuesday. The theater stays open until 11:30 pm on Friday and Saturday nights and to 10 pm on other nights.

No one filed response opposing the application. Also, the Central Police station recommended its approval.

Matthew Shelton, owner of the theater, wrote a letter to the Board of Supervisors, which said, “Our family has been creating theater in the community since 1947. Out patrons, who come to witness literary based theater productions, would enjoy a glass of beer or wine before the show.”

Shelton said the chance to drink alcohol at the theater would act as an “enhancement” of the night’s experience for the theater goers and leave them with the right impression about how San Francisco is a world class tourist destination.
