GRIF­FITH OB­SER­VA­TORY, GRIF­FITH PARK

Friday - - Travel -

From Cathy’s Cor­ner, Mia and Se­bas­tian con­tinue their date at this 1935 art deco land­mark and tourist at­trac­tion, named for Welsh in­dus­tri­al­ist and phi­lan­thropist Grif­fith J Grif­fith. Though his rep­u­ta­tion was marred when he was pros­e­cuted in 1903 for shoot­ing his wife, the ob­ser­va­tory named af­ter him is well-loved and of­fers pop­u­lar plan­e­tar­ium shows and spec­tac­u­lar views of the city and the nearby Hol­ly­wood sign. It was also the site of the knife fight scene in 1955’s Rebel with­out a Cause, com­mem­o­rated by a bust of its star, James Dean. (Ad­mis­sion free, 2800 East Ob­ser­va­tory Road, grif­fithob­ser­va­tory.org.)
