The Point was a small (425 seat) theatre hastily erected amid
the housing projects to accomodate the host of wartime workers
at nearby Hunters Point Shipyards. It operated from 1944-1952,
and was subsequently torn down.

If Hill Top Road in San Francisco still exists, then its name must have been changed. Google Maps is only finding Hilltop Drive in San Carlos, way down the peninsula.

As there aren’t many places in Hunters Point with a 100 block, my best guess would be that the theater was somewhere in the neighborhood around Innes Avenue and Donahue Street, where it looks like there are a few old housing projects that haven’t been redeveloped yet, and a few that have been.
