What’s going on in the newly revitalized Grand Theater building on Mission Street?

KQED Arts takes a look:

On a recent Mission District afternoon, a middle-aged woman remarked to her walking companion as they passed the old Grand Theater that it was the place she’d first seen Lawrence of Arabia.

While the theater is currently under renovation by the nonprofit Gray Area Foundation the Arts to have a new auditorium, what’s going on inside is far from Peter O’Toole territory. Dedicated to the intersection of technology and art, Gray Area’s restoration of the Grand looks more toward the digital future than to cinema’s golden past.

Read on for more, including stuff about the Gray Area folks having to deal with people mistaking them for a tech startup even though they’re actually an arts non-profit.

Ewok thoughts while waiting at the 24th/Mission BART station

“That R2D2 dude is actually kind of a dick.”

Or maybe it’s a Mogwai (from that movie Gremlins), in which case he’s probably wondering if it’s past his snack time yet.

Oooh, or maybe it’s a Moblin, and he’s wondering why he NEVER runs out of spears to throw at that dumb little elf kid dressed in green!

Regardless, they’re probably ALL wondering why BART is so goddamn late.

It’s-It pouch for your It’s-It or whatever

Local artist Tika Hall designed the print and printed it on the fabric and fashioned these neat little pouches out of it.

There are a few for sale now on her Etsy site.

The story of J. Rusten’s iconic California tables and desks

Last week, our pal Lil Tuffy submitted a suggestion regarding J. Rusten Furniture Studio, a Mission-based business doing some really cool stuff:

You should interview/feature businesses like this that are still in the Mission. There’s still a lot of cool stuff being made here and I’d love to see pictures of his shop and work.

I thought that was a really good idea — and then Jared Rusten himself answered all our prayers with an in-depth history of his famous California tables and desks on an Instagram #tbt yesterday:
