former film exchange buildings

These four former film exchange buildings were used for movie storage. They were built around 1930. The buildings were made of reinforced concrete with iron doors due to the flammable nature of early films. The building with the lions was used as storage by the MGM studio. The building with the comedy and tragedy masks was used by 20th Century Fox. For more, see this website. [map]
