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.

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.
