- Pending planning OK, Bi-Rite to operate Civic Center Plaza café
By Carrie Sisto, Hoodline - Friday Jul 28, 2017
Thanks to a $1 million grant from the Helen Diller Foundation, Bi-Rite could operate a new café in Civic Center Plaza—if the project is approved by SF Planning.
The San Francisco Recreation and Park Department, the Trust for Public Land and the Civic Center Community Benefit District announced yesterday that the Diller Foundation had expanded its $10 million grant to support upgrades to the plaza's playgrounds.
The extra funds will support the CCCBD in the creation of a new street café, operated by Bi-Rite, at the corner of Grove and Larkin streets.
- SF Parks Commission votes to strip Justin Herman’s name from plaza
By Dominic Fracassa - Thursday Oct 19, 2017
San Francisco’s Recreation and Parks Commission narrowly voted Thursday afternoon to strip Justin Herman’s name from the plaza seated next to the city’s Embarcadero Center amid mounting pressure to rechristen the iconic public space. In what was perhaps a reflection of the divisiveness that has come to define Herman’s legacy in San Francisco, the parks commission voted 4-3 to temporarily re-name the space as Embarcadero Plaza. The vote to change the plaza’s name came down to Commissioner Larry Mazzola, who asked for a moment to collect his thoughts as he weighed how he would break the 3-3 tie he was faced with. “I have complete mixed feelings about this whole thing,” he said.
- The Commons brings food, music, fun to S.F. Civic Center
By Peter Hartlaub - Wednesday Sep 20, 2017
The city of San Francisco is throwing another block party in the Civic Center on Thursday, Sept. 21, bringing everything from food and music to giant Scrabble and roller skating into the open spaces near City Hall. The event known as the Commons is an effort to utilize open space around the Civic Center. The free community-friendly events have been hosted there on the third Thursday evening of every month since July, with one more block party on the books for Oct. 19. Events in UN Plaza, Civic Center Plaza and Fulton Street (between the Asian Art Museum and public library) include bocce ball, art installations and wild cards including Skee-Ball and skating.
- S.F.’s Opera Plaza Cinema may be going dark
By Sam Whiting - Wednesday Aug 2, 2017
The Opera Plaza Cinema, a cozy four-screen movie theater known for its independent and documentary programming, appears headed for closure.Opera Plaza LP, owner of the commercial property at the 13-story condo tower in the Civic Center, has filed a request with the city to convert the ground-floor space from a movie theater to 6,000 square feet of retail sales and service.“Opera Plaza Cinema is no longer economically viable — and has not been for a long period of time,” said Nathan Nishiguchi of Urban Pacific Properties, managing agent for Opera Plaza.The operator (Landmark Theatres) and the landlord have arrived at the decision that closing the theater is the most appropriate next step.[...] Ted Mundorff, president of Landmark, a Los Angeles chain that runs the cinema, wrote in an email that he had met with the landlord this week and was under the impression that negotiations were ongoing.Landmark does not comment on its lease arrangements, but in an email statement, property manager Nishiguchi said the cinema has been on a month-to-month lease for eight years.The complex covers a square block between Van Ness Avenue and Franklin Street, Golden Gate Avenue and Turk Street, a short walk from the War Memorial Opera House it is named for.When Landmark took over the cinema in 1991, its ads stated “in the screening rooms” as code for indie and foreign movies the cognoscenti would be willing to search out.“When a film finished doing well at the Bridge or the Clay, we would move it over to the Opera Plaza,” said Gary Meyer, a co-founder of Landmark and now a consultant to film festivals and art-house cinemas.
- SF rallies in Castro, Civic Center Plaza promote antihate message
By Lizzie Johnson - Sunday Aug 27, 2017
A rally at San Francisco’s Civic Center Plaza on Saturday appeared to do exactly what organizers hoped it would — attract thousands of proponents of “art, activism and love” and keep them away from right-wing gatherings that, in the end, didn’t come off. The peaceful throng jammed around a stage near City Hall, where speakers called for a defeat of hatred and bigotry and music acts such as Michael Franti and Spearhead, Malo and the Brothers Comatose were on the bill. “Isn’t it great to be in a place where you’re with kindred spirits?” said event organizer Kate Kendall, laughing. Raquel Henry, 28, of the Inner Richmond stood beneath a tree and swayed to the music.
