Loved seeing this building in person after seeing it onscreen so many times. The public are not allowed access to a huge amount of the building, but you can see all the good bits. Security was very courteous and helpful on the day I visited. Great fun and should only take 30 minutes or less. Be careful when parking on the street around the building. Some meters are only good until 3 or 4 pm and they tow immediately. A nice neighborhood man warned us that our metered spot would be tow away in 10 minutes and the meter maids would be there on the dot. We checked out the building and were back within the 10 minutes, so it can be done that quickly.
This architectural masterpiece is simply magnificent. It figures prominently in many films (including an extremely effective use of the staircases during a key sequence in the 2011 Best Picture Oscar winner "The Artist"), and it's easy to see why. I had the great pleasure of attending a concert sponsored by The Decamera Society that featured a brass quartet positioned on various landings on the staircases. Even if all you get to do is walk inside the lobby, don't miss the chance to see this gorgeous structure in person.
One of a very very few meticulously preseved historic buildings in LA. Polished brick, craftsman cut wood trim, brass slot head screws. Atrium glass roof. The crown jewel is the 2 birdcage elevators.
Really cool spot in downtown. This building was supposed to be some version of a futuristic architecture when it was originally built. It is very intricate and beautiful. The first floor up to the second landing is open to wandering around. A few famous films have been shot at this location. Overall it is a very special slice of LA history and totally free to come and check out. I wonder who occupies that space now.
Very beautiful (and free entry)! However, there's not much for visitors to explore; while we can see the ceiling and other floors, the highest we could enter was the first half of stairs to the second floor. Definitely wish I could have seen the wooden ceilings closer up...
