Create an itinerary including Bradbury Building
Head downtown to see Bradbury Building and star in your own film noir. Originally designed by Sumner Hunt, Bradbury Building has been standing tall since 1893 when a millionaire businessman Lewis L. Bradbury commissioned it from George Wyman. Added to the list of the Los Angeles Cultural Heritage Commission, the building played a starring role in many music videos of artists like Janet Jackson and Genesis, as well as various films. Take a stroll through the structure to admire the Romanesque style that rules the decor--including an interior central court--or ride the open-cage elevators for a unique experience.

  • Historic architecture with this quiet downtown spot. Films such as Wolf, 500 Days of Summer, and others have used this landmark for th their location. Fair warning, you can't wander beyond floor one, since their our actual businesses their. However if you are looking for great architectural photos, this is the place.
  • Historic building used for many movie shots including the original blade runner. Was not able to go inside but famous nonetheless
