How to Find old LA
This is the ideal companion for visitors to Los Angeles who are looking for the city glimpsed in old movies and TV shows. The 39 entries encompass both the glamour and the demi-monde: here are glittering 1920s movie palaces, down-and-dirty bars, ballrooms, diners and pizza joints. These are places where movie stars, gangsters, writers and barflies have wined, dined, romanced, brawled and now lie at permanent rest. 

This is a guide to the old LA that lives on today. These places have made few concessions to changing times, but modern Angelenos love them still. We hope you will too.
