Killing Zoe (1993)

While Roger Avary’s underappreciated 1993 heist film “Killing Zoe” is set on the streets of Paris, the bank from the film is actually located in downtown Los Angeles.  In fact, the whole film came about precisely due to producer Samuel Hadida coming into access to the bank, which subsequently led to him reaching out to filmmaker Roger Avary to ask if he had any bank robbery scripts.  Without actually having one, Avary promptly said yes and set about penning the film.  Today, the bank is the Farmers & Merchants Bank.  It was also seen in the film “(500) Days Of Summer.”
