About Palace of Fine Arts Theatre

In 1915, the city of San Francisco was still recovering from the devastation of the earthquake and subsequent fires less than a decade earlier. At a time of turmoil for the city and the world abroad, San Francisco’s city leaders developed a plan to encourage trade and demonstrate how a rebuilt San Francisco would play an active role in the international community for years to come. The Palace of Fine Arts Theatre was designed by Bernard R. Maybeck. He based the design for the Palace on his impression of a Roman ruin. With its soaring colonnade, grand rotunda, and carefully constructed pond, Maybeck’s design was meant to invoke quiet sadness and solemnity. True to his vision, the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre fell into ruin for a number of years after the Exposition, but it was rebuilt in 1965. The lagoon and walkways were renovated in 2009, at which time the whole site also received a modern seismic retrofit.
