Since 1980 Antenna Theater has been producing unique theatrical events and adventures most often in and around San Francisco. Our most recent creation is the Magic Bus, yes, a truly Magic Bus filled with mini video projectors, an awesome sound system and all sorts of theatrical dramatics. Check out the Magic Bus at www.magicbussf.com or watch this 3 minute documentary on the Magic Bus, right here:

So, the Magic Bus drives around the city of San Francisco and at times it's a mobile movie theater and then the curtains rise and voila! we're in another part of the city- North Beach or Haight Ashbury! Did I mention that the subject of the Magic Bus is the '60s... the Summer of LOVE... in San Francisco?
