LA’s Most Famous Film Locations


The Bradbury Building

Built in 1893 by the real estate magnate Lewis Bradbury, the interior of the Bradbury building still maintains the original marble staircases, ornate railings and cage elevators that draw local photographers, camera crews, tourists and hungry diners on their way to the nearby Grand Central Market. Several movies were filmed there, including Chinatown, Wolf, Lethal Weapon 4 and The Artist. The LA Conservancy offers regular tours of the building and surrounding points of interests, while detailed maps on the organization’s website are ideal for anyone interested in exploring the site on their own.
