Where: The Meisner Technique Studio
39 Mesa Street, Studio A

We are located inside the San Francisco Film Centre. If you are standing on Mesa Street facing our building, towards the center of the building you will see a staircase that leads downstairs into the basement. This is the entrance to our studio. Click here for directions.
Parking Information: The Presidio charges a small fee for parking every day (including Sunday) until 6 p.m. There is a parking meter located in the parking lot behind the building, so you can purchase a permit to display on your dashboard if you park in that lot or in the lot at the side (south end) of the building. This L-shaped lot is considered Zone 5. If you choose to park on Mesa Street in front of the building, this is considered Zone 6 and you will need to buy a parking permit at one of the meters located on the street. There are no meters on Mesa Street, so you would need to buy a permit at one of the meters on Funston Avenue (parallel to Mesa Street). PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN THE DIAGONAL SPACES DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF OUR BUILDING. These are reserved for building tenants only and you will be ticketed and/or towed.
