Culver City

Culver City is small incorporated city totally surrounded by Los Angeles. It's a separate community with great schools. I have lived here for over 60 years and wouldn't live anywhere else. How about you...

A brief history off the top of my head!

Culver City is known as "The Heart of Screenland".
It is the original home of the M.G.M. Studios amongst many others and is now the home of Sony Pictures Studios.
Many of your favorite movies and television shows were filmed in and around the streets of Culver City. Beginning in the era of the silent movie such classics as Charlie Chaplin, The Three Stooges, The Little Rascals and Our Gang Comedies. In the seventies I watched them film "King Kong" and the T.V. show "CHiPS". The list continues to grow to this day and includes many of the game shows like "Wheel of Fortune".
The downtown area near the studios has become a rather exclusive collection of shops restaurants and theaters with the landmark building "Culver Hotel" at it's center.
There is lots more but that's a start

I'm currently working in Culver City building the new Expo Light Rail Line and I'm sure its a nice place to live,but the city regulations are out of control. There are 2 sets of rules and that what bugs me. I'll be glad to get done and move on to another city.

Just 6 miles north of LAX, downtown Culver City boasts of having more than fifty restrauants and the shortest Main Street in the U.S.A. even offers a great wine tasting room. The Culver Hotel is the anchor for the area. It was built in the 1920s and features 46 guest rooms. It is walking distance to the movie theater, Sony Studios, Culver Studios, Helms Bakery and the east-end gallery district, Smashbox Studios, the Kirk Douglas Theatre (live stage) and gyms, spas and more are nearby.

When Harry Culver established Culver City in 1917, he knew there was great promise in this area that was covered by rich ranch land, but little did he know the history of movie making would begin and continue on almost one hundred years into the future.

I work here but wouldn't live here... it's manufactured ambiance. Build some banners that say "art district" and they will come... so goes the hope. And restaurants overpriced - $15 for a burger at Fords?

I take it back - there is one worthy restaurant and ambiance - Tokyo 7-7 in a back alley. Worth a visit. Not saying it is gourmet, but awesome in its own way...

Tokyo

You have found one of the hidden gems for cheap, but good, breakfast and lunch in Culver City. Tokyo 7-7 has been there for probably 25 years or more and just the locals know about it. Shhh!
