The wave-swept remnants of Sutro Baths below San Francisco's Cliff House are among the city's most famous ruins. The new documentary "Sutro's: The Palace at Land's End" highlights the heyday of the lavish bathhouse, which opened in 1896 and featured six saltwater pools, more than 500 dressing rooms and several restaurants, all enclosed by 100,000 square feet of glass.
