I remember a market that was on Mission Street (next to the New Mission Theatre) that sounds like the same one you are talking about. It opened onto Mission Street and went all the way through to Valencia Street. It was called (strangely enough) The New Mission Market. I, too, remember the hanging chickens and barrels of food. There was a bakery near the front entrance that sold the most wonderful pastries. My favorite was a breakfast roll (similar to a small cinnamon roll) that was kinda orange flavored and the icing had little specks of grated orange peel. My grandmother would occasionally buy on for me and one for her...when she got a little bit of money.
There were 5 theatres on Mission Street as I recall.
1. The GRAND between 24th & 23rd I think.
2 & 3: The NEW MISSION & The CROWN (probably the Majestic earlier) both between 22nd & 21st.
4: The TOWER on the next block
5: The EL CAPITAN (we used to call it the EL CAP) between 20th & 19th. On Saturday mornings, children could get into the show for 3 PepsiCola bottle caps.
