Film enthusiasts will walk in the footsteps of movie stars


Los Angeles is a star-studded city, with a rich movie history to boot.

On Saturday, Feb. 5, join cinephiles on a walking tour of the area between Fourth and Fifth and Spring and Main streets, where 200 movies have been shot, according to the co-author of "Location Filming in Los Angeles," Fandango's Harry Medved. 

The event, Downtown L.A. Movie History Night, is a celebration of Downtown's expansive cinema history and an opportunity for readers and moviegoers to get copies of the book signed by Medved, who will also be a co-tour guide for the evening.

From Harold Lloyd in the iconic 1923 silent film "Safety Last!" on South Broadway to John Travolta in the famous "Grease" drag racing scene by the Los Angeles River, many a movie star has walked the same trodden path that we plebeians take every day. More recently, Los Angeles had a starring role in "Inception" and "(500) Days of Summer," according to Los Angeles Downtown News.

The event begins at 6 p.m. at 440 S. Main St. Don't forget your walking shoes.
