just in front of the Bradbury Building. The front entrance was used in the film Blade Runner as entrance of Sebastian home, expecially for his particular works and sculptures. Nice place where to stop a couple of minutes for some photos.

Try finding a walking tour of downtown L.A. that will give you access to the inside of this place. It is spectacular and well preserved. Worth seeing.

We could just see the outside, on the day that we went, for me it was a great experience we took a tour and they showed us all the theaters with the LA conservancy and it was really interesting. I would really recommend it to people that like to learn the history of art.

The concert was great but the theater was so run down it is a shame that such a beautiful theater is in such bad condition,there is so much potential if they would only restore this landmark to its former glory.

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
