Edward Grey, played by James Spader, works as an attorney in this building, where Lee Holloway, played by Maggie Gyllenhaal, becomes his secretary. The exterior scenes were filmed at the Huron Substation. The building was originally constructed for the purpose of converting electricity to power trolleys for the Yellow Car railway system, but was eventually sold off and operated as an event and filming venue. The same building appears in numerous films, including “The Fast And The Furious,” “The Kids Are Alright,” “Date Night,” “Catwoman,” “Must Love Dogs” and “Malibu’s Most Wanted,” as well as the TV shows “NCIS: New Orleans,” “True Blood,” “Heroes,” “Dollhouse” and “Major Crimes.” It has also appeared in such music videos as Jonas Brothers – Kids of the Future and Josh Groban – February Song.

What’s Love Got To Do With It (1993)

The 1993 Tina Turner biopic “What’s Love Got to Do With It” was largely filmed in Los Angeles, California, with the locations sometimes doubling as other cities for the story. Ike and Tina, played by Laurence Fishburne and Angela Bassett, eat dinner at the former Quality Cafe in Downtown Los Angeles.  The diner was a one-time staple of films, appearing in “Seven,” “Training Day,” “Ghost World,” “Catch Me If You Can,” “Another Day In Paradise,” “(500) Days Of Summer” “Million Dollar Baby,” “The Heartbreak Kid” and many more.  However, it was not an actual restaurant open to the public.  Instead it was used solely for filming (much like Johnie’s Coffee Shop in mid-town L.A.).  Unless the building was being set up for a production, most of the time it was closed up and locked by a large metal door covering the front windows.  So catching a glimpse of it was rare. It ceased to function as a filming location and was completely renovated in 2014. The interior of the property no longer bears any resemblance inside to how it appeared in so many films.

LOCATION: 1238 W 7th St, Los Angeles, CA 90017 (since closed and remodeled)

Ike and Tina perform at New York’s Apollo Theater. The interior scenes were actually filmed at the Warner Grand Theater in San Pedro, California. The same theater also appeared in many other films, including “Pearl Harbor,” “Zodiac,” “Seabiscut,” “Remote Control,” “Win A Date With Tad Hamilton,” “Ghosts Of Mississippi,” “Boys And Girls,” “Live By Night,” “Worth Winning,” “Mark Of Love,” “Invasion Earth: The Aliens Are Here” and “From Wharf Rats to Lords of the Docks.” It has also appeared in such television series as “The O.C.,” “Party Of Five,” “Melrose Place,” “T.J.Hooker,” “7th Heaven” and “Cousin Skeeter.”

LOCATION: 478 W 6th St, San Pedro, CA 90731

Ike and Tina’s house can be found in View Park-Windsor Hills. It is the actual home Ike and Tina Turner once lived in, with the original furniture and decor once owned by the couple used for the film. The exterior has since been lined with gates and hedges, making it a bit difficult to see from ground level.

LOCATION: 4263 Olympiad Dr, View Park, CA 90043

Ike gets into a confrontation with Tina and her friend at the former Johnie’s Broiler in Downey.  The restaurant has a unique history, having appeared in many other films, such as “Heat,” “The Game,” “Short Cuts,” “License To Drive,” “My Stepmother Is An Alien,” “One Hour Photo” and many more.  In 2007, the building was demolished.  However, Bob’s Big Boy purchased the property years later and rebuilt it based on the original blueprints and even some of the same materials.  So what stands now closely resembles what was seen in the film.
