The Warfield, located at 982 Market Street in San Francisco, opened on May 13, 1922. It was built by showman and theatre chain owner Marcus Loew, who named the showplace after his friend David Warfield, a native San Franciscan who began as an usher and grew to be one of the greatest silent film actors of his time. Originally built as a vaudeville and movie palace, the Warfied became a concert hall in 1979 when Bill Graham Presents booked a two week run of shows with Bob Dylan.
