Sunset Boulevard Dreamin’

The unforgettable feeling of driving down Sunset Boulevard; Rodeo Drive; Santa Monica Boulevard. Strip after strip, mile after mile like a movie unfolding in front of you and you are part of the magic and have to keep pinching yourself to make sure you’re not dreaming.

See that long white colonnade building with the radio tower? That’s the old Warner Brothers Studio, now known as the Sunset Bronson Studios. And that’s where the first ever talkie was filmed in 1927, The Jazz Singer.

And now, Netflix, recently moved to their newly built Icon Tower next door, also signed a 10-year lease for the use of several sound stages at the studio.

That magical structure just off Rodeo Drive? It’s the Gaudi inspired, Art Nouveau loving O’Neill House aka The Mushroom.

Next time you see me, please don’t wake me up. Let me keep on dreaming.
