The Downtown L.A. Movie Locations Scavenger Hunt

Movie madness—and so much more

The L.A. neighborhood with perhaps the best comeback story is your playground on this popular team-building activity. Tricky clues and humorous questions lead teams on a fast-paced tour of locations featured in such films as Speed, Independence Day, Pretty Woman, Ghostbusters, L.A. Confidential, Vertigo, Raging Bull, Wedding Crashers, Phone Booth, L.A. Story, Seven, Ed Wood, Barton Fink, Beverly Hills Cop, and even New York, New York. But you don’t need to have seen any of the movies to get the right answers and even win.

Along the way, you’ll also discover hidden history, movie palaces and other grand landmarks, sleek street art, cool views, and offbeat, oddball sights.

Highlights of the scavenger hunt include…

  • A little-known slice of Europe
  • An urban oasis with stunning views
  • Strange figures outside a legendary movie palace
  • The famed neon signs and colorful vendors of Grand Central Market
  • The stunning, sci-fi-inspired Bradbury Building
  • And more!

Hollywood’s favorite back lot is definitely ready for its close-up. Are you? Find out why this has been our most popular downtown hunt since 2007!

What are players saying about the downtown movie locations scavenger hunt?

A 5-star review on Yelp: “Fun, fun, fun and super fun!!! We had a blast. We had no idea what to expect but we were looking for a fun team building event and this was it! The questions were fun and challenging. Got an opportunity to see quite a few sights from downtown that we literally pass up everyday. We had fun working together and also competing against our co-workers. Charlie was our [hunt host] and he had the best personality and from the beginning he had us excited and ready. Thank you so much Watson Adventures. It’s always great when my boss has expectations of an event and you, as the person putting it together, knocks it out of the park! Thanks for making me look like a super star!”

Another 5-star Yelp review: “Love love LOVE Watson Adventures! Whether you’re a tourist or LA native, it’s an exceptional way to discover different places in Los Angeles. I’ve done the Harry Potter hunt at the Getty, which was a blast and also great for kids. I also did the downtown Los Angeles movie hunt. The closest thing I’ve ever done to The Amazing Race. So much fun and such cool trivia to learn about the destinations you discover in downtown LA. Never thought I’d see LA in such a unique perspective. Very well organized and fun group of people at Watson Adventures. Hope to do more in the future. Keep up the great work!”
