Castro Theatre Manager Freaks Out Public Nudists, Journalist (Video)
|The naked truth|
Mike Skiff, a journalist with Third Rail Media, posted his video and explained what happened on Saturday as he interviewed two naked dudes outside the Castro Theatre:
The debate over public nudity heats up in San Francisco. Several nudists, including [a] former SF mayoral [candidate] celebrating Park(ing) Day by turning a parking space into the Garden of Eden beneath the iconic Castro Theatre marquee. The Castro's livid general manager, Keith Arnold, interrupted interviews by repeatedly striking a news cameraman with a clip board (at 2:25) and forcing the law-biding nudists to move one store front down Castro street. In answer to the question, "Are you tolerant of public nudism?" Mr. Arnold says in the video, "I'm tolerant of kids not having cocks in their faces."Watch the video:

We put in a call to Arnold to get his side of the story, but have not been able to reach him. We've also contacted SFPD to learn more about this purported police report that's been filed.
In any event, that's the latest news on those freely flapping penises in the Castro.
