    One of San Francisco's most iconic movie houses, the Red Vic, will be closing down at the end of the month.

    On July 25, the Haight movie house will shut its doors, after 31 years.

    The Vic had run into financial issues last year, so the news did not come as a total surprise to the collective that runs the theater, Claudia Lehan who has been with the collective for about 14 years, told the Bay Citizen.

    "The bottom line was attendance," Lehan said. "It's a different world than 31 years ago."

    "The bottom line was attendance," Lehan said. "It's a different world than 31 years ago."

    Lehan said the staff's mood is one of "acceptance." 

    The last movie they will be playing, is also the first movie they played - "Harold and Maude."

    "We're going out with maude," Lehan said, referring to the movie's premise, "Not to be morbid."
