A Look at the Sixth Street Viaduct’s Film History


With the reopening of the Sixth Street Viaduct, Hollywood got its favorite filming location back after six long years of construction.

The Viaduct has got a long film history that pays tribute to LA. 

Several classic films have featured a scene at the Viaduct. From “Grease” (1978) to “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” (1991).  

Other classics include “The Mask” (1994), “True Lies” (1994), and “To Live and Die in L.A.” (1985). 

More recent movies, like “Transformers” (2007), “Drive” (2011), “The Dark Knight Rises” (2012), “The Purge: Anarchy” (2014) and “Furious 7” (2015) have all featured the Viaduct before the remodel. 

The Sixth Street Viaduct also has been seen in TV shows from “Fear the Walking Dead” and “Lost” to an animated feature from “Bojack Horseman.” 

The Viaduct is not only famous for its film history, it appears in the background of several music videos of different genres. 

Well known artists like The Pussycat Dolls filmed there for their song “Don’t Cha,” Pharrell Williams for his song “Happy,” Kendrick Lamar for his song “Humble,” and the Beastie Boys’s song “Sabotage.” 

The reopening of the new-and-improved Viaduct might open a bridge to new opportunities in Hollywood.
