Los Angeles Center Studios
Los Angeles Center Studios is a multipurpose facility in the former Unocal Building next to the 110 Freeway in downtown Los Angeles, California. Architect William Pereira designed the Union Oil (or Unocal for short) headquarters in 1960. The studio itself was opened in 1999, three years after the original owners vacated the premises.
The converted building now includes six film production sound stages and areas available as theatres or for events.
It is located near W. 6th Street and Beaudry Avenue; the main gate's address is 450 South Bixel Street.
The Los Angeles Center Studios is where many films and shows have been filmed, including the recent Internet Icon.
The building itself has played roles in several TV shows: in Cold Case, as the Philadelphia Police Department; in Numb3rs as the Los Angeles FBI field office, and in Life as the "Bank of Los Angeles" (with that title on the south face of the tower in huge letters.)
