Movie Tour: City Hall

Several months ago I purchased 2 Yelp "Deal of the Day" tickets for the San Francisco Movie Tour, so when our niece came to visit earlier this month, she and I took the tour on a beautiful, sunny Thursday afternoon.Here we are at Fort Point, but I'll get to that location later.

As we made our way around the city, we watched movie clips when we got to specific locations that were represented in the film. Believe it or not, I didn't take a lot of photos. It wasn't easy in the bus, and I gave Ashley the window seat so she could have a better view. But I was able to snap a handful of shots when we were able to get off the bus.

Our first stop was at City Hall.
Some of the films featured here are: Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Milk, A View to a Kill, The Rock, The Wedding Planner, Raiders of the Lost Ark and lots more.

We were allowed to go inside and see and even walk up the grand staircase.

At the top of the staircase is a bust of Harvey Milk. He was California's first openly gay man to be elected to public office, but was assassinated in this building in 1978 after only 11 months in office.

Chinese New Year celebrations were still underway and this large Dragon Boat was proudly on display in front of City Hall.

Since taking this tour, I've added a few more movies onto my "Must Watch" list. Jimmy and I love watching movies that were filmed here.

Next stop, Alamo Square.
