The Wiltern Theater
Used for some interiors of Taffy Lewis' bar, the decision of using the Wiltern was due to its art decco design which easily gives off a feeling of oppulance and decadence. Though this was the master idea, in the end, like with Rick Deckard's "Frank Lloyd Wright" apartment, the set for the interiors for JF Sebastion's apartment was redressed to look like the Wiltern and was used for most of the shot.
Originally opened in 1931 as a movie theatre, The Wiltern Theatre was renovated and restored to its original splendor in 1985. It is currently a showcase for the performing arts and is recognized as Los Angeles' premiere monument to Art Deco architecture. The Wiltern Theatre has been named to the National Register of Historic Places and declared an Historic-Cultural Monument by the City of Los Angeles. The Wiltern is proud to be a member of the League of Historic American Theatres and The Western Alliance of Arts Administrators.
