SAN FRANCISCO — With Kink.com founder Peter Acworth setting sights on Las Vegas, the BDSM studio has rented parts of its 200,000-square-foot facility for other uses — including a big-budget, action-disaster mainstream movie.

Production of earthquake disaster film "San Andreas" took over The Armory yesterday. The movie stars Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Kylie Minogue.

After capturing scenes at AT&T Park and Fisherman's Wharf, "San Andreas" filmmakers took over seven blocks in Russian Hill and then on to The Armory, which is available for use by all filmmakers.

"San Andreas" filming resumes on Saturday at Clay and Taylor Streets on Nob Hill, and again on Sunday at Grant and Bush, as well as 555 California Street.

The film, directed by Brad Peyton and slated to be released early next year, takes place  in the aftermath of a massive earthquake in California. "A rescue-chopper pilot makes a dangerous journey across the state in order to rescue his estranged daughter," according to IMDB.

Acworth let it be known in April that he was contemplating a move out of San Francisco's fabled building with plans to relocate his fetish studio to Nevada.

Last week, he announced that he's moved some production to Las Vegas, where he also leased office space, because of a bill that is wending its way through California's Legislature.

Since the beginning of the year, Acworth has cited stricter health rules that could mean higher costs and possible criminal prosecution for adult filmmakers in California if a porn-condom bill, AB 1576, passes.

The bill inched forward in the state Senate last month. Another panel, the Senate Appropriations Committee, is scheduled to hear it Aug. 4.
