LOS ANGELES, CA - OCTOBER 27: Grout fillsin some of the cracks formed over the years in the structure of the Sixth Street bridge on October 27, 2011 in Los Angeles, California. U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Ca) and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said in a news conference today that the Sixth Street bridge over the Los Angeles River and the Hollywood Freeway is likely to fall during a major earthquake. They are pushing for federal funding to help repair the aging structure and askings Congress to immediately pass a transportation bill co-sponsored by Boxer that would fund 91 percent of the cost to replace the bridge.

When you think about bridges in films (I’m sure that’s EXACTLY) what’s on your mind… What do you think about?

The Sixth Street Bridge / Sixth Street Viaduct in Los Angeles is probably one of the most well documented, cinematic spots in all of the U.S., and it also happens to have just been recently demolished. It seems as if nobody in the world noticed except this Cinematic YouTuber, OLUFEMI TUTORIALS, who takes us on a journey of this bridge in films and music videos.

We’re talking Grease, Anchorman, Repo Man, Terminator, Dark Knight Rises, Drive, and more. And a TON of music videos, most recently, the music film created for The Rolling Stones starring Kristen Stewart, and “HUMBLE.” from Kendrick Lamar.

Personally, I’m really bummed that this “Film Noir” location is now gone, but the bridge is said to be in replacement status with an up-to-date version in 2020.
