Paul Thomas Anderson’s 1999 film, “Magnolia,” named after a street that spans the San Fernando Valley, was shot mostly, as you might expect, around the Valley. However, in the opening “coincidences” sequence, there is a memorable scene in which an attempted suicide becomes an accidental homicide. That scene was shot at the Bryson Apartments on Wilshire Blvd. in Los Angeles.
