Beautiful interior, I stop by every time I am in the neighborhood! While there, check out a larger-then-life (70ft) Anthony Quinn "Zorba" mural across the 3rd Street Bradbury' entrance, and the Million Dollar Theater across the Broadway entrance.

I like: building outside + inside captivating.

I did not like: building tour is free, you can tour the ground floor only.
To rise to the upper floors, preferably coordinate and determine in advance with the building management. May be a fee.

I missed doing a walking tour and only got 5 minutes to check out the Bradbury Building. It was on my list of things to see in Downtown Los Angeles but also as I love Bladerunner! As like others have said, beautiful iron work and historic building with alot of light as well. I only took photos and admired the architecture and design. Work a look if you are in downtown.

The Bradbury building is famous as a movie landmark (seen in The Artist and Blade Runner). The outside it is a normal building, but the inside is amazingly beautiful. It has filigree ironwork on all of the exposed interior floors, and light pours into the space from a large skylight. A fun visit, but since it's a working office building, nothing much to do but take pictures.

Downtown LA, like most of the city, is a bit of a dump, but there are a few gems in amongst all the tat and flashy mirror glass. The Bradbury Building is certainly worth a detour and you simply must go inside. On the Saturday we visited, the sun was coming through the skylights and making the amber-coloured tiles in the lobby positively glow - no wonder it's a film-maker's and photographer's dream! The Conservancy people have done a grand job and this is a spectacular composition of late Victorian wrought iron, ceramic tile and wood. We would do the Conservancy tour next time, as this was just a drop-by visit. Beautiful.
