History

One of the most extraordinary civic buildings in the United States, San Francisco City Hall rose from the rubble of the 1906 earthquake to become both the symbol of a resilient citizenry and the epicenter of a city in constant change.

Winner of an Emmy Award in 2016, The People’s Palace documentary commemorates this remarkable piece of architecture and the dramatic events that have taken place under its dome: labor strife, political assassinations, civil rights struggles, and celebrations that have forged the character of contemporary San Francisco.
