A Journey Through Time in Film Tour – Private Group

Quick Details

Duration: Approx. 90 minutes

Let Red Line Tours take you on a fantastic exploration through the past, present, and future of the City of Angels

Long before the first movie studios found their way to Los Angeles, the Bradbury Building (1893) became a Victorian-era vision of our possible future with its monumental glass domed ceiling, intricate cast iron grillwork, and soaring interior courtyard. Now a national landmark, the building has been featured as an apocalyptic Los Angeles of the future in Bladerunner and as a romantic Los Angeles of the 1930s in The Artist.

From there, we cross over Broadway and into the neon-lit Grand Central Market – one of the nation’s oldest food markets representing the many tastes and cultures of Los Angeles. We emerge on the other end of the market at the foot of Bunker Hill and Angel’s Flight. As seen in The Muppets, Angel’s Flight (also known as the shortest railroad in the world) transports us to the top of Bunker Hill and to the present and future of Los Angeles. We wander through gleaming office towers on Bunker Hill to Frank Gehry’s spectacular Walt Disney Concert Hall with its curving façade of shimmering stainless steel featured in the film The Soloist. The Broad, a new museum designed by world-renowned architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro, represents the future of Los Angeles. Its otherworldly veil and vault design is an airy, cellular exoskeleton structure that spans across a block-long gallery space and provides filtered natural daylight to the artwork within.

We end our journey at the Arthur J. Will Memorial Fountain and Grand Park. With its majestic views, Grand Park extends from the Los Angeles Music Center to City Hall, providing Angelenos of all walks of life a place where they can come together to celebrate, reflect, and shape the future of LA, in one central gathering place. With its unmistakable fuchsia garden furniture, Grand Park has already become a Los Angeles icon and one of the world’s great urban gathering places.
