Commissioned by gold-mining millionaire Lewis L. Bradbury and built in 1893, the Bradbury Building is an L.A. historic landmark. The building also happens to be a bit of a movie star too, appearing in several films, television shows, music videos and works of fiction. Though its exterior is somewhat modest, inside visitors will find "a magical light-filled Victorian court that rises almost fifty feet with open cage elevators, marble stairs, and ornate iron railings." It's any wonder that this building is the star of L.A.'s theatre district.
