OK all you Los Angelinos, mark your calendars: this Sunday, August 30, the Los Angeles Conservancy is holding a (500) Days of Summer architectural tour.

If you’ve had the chance to see this excellent indie rom-com, you’ll no doubt remember that the biggest scene-stealer in the film was the city of Angels herself. It is a singularly unique ‘LA movie’ in that it is in no way affiliated with anything Hollywood or Westside, but rather it revels in the neglected beauties of Broadway and Hill and Hope and Fig.

If you’re interested in seeing these gorgeous pieces of architecture first hand and are looking for something free to do, join the Conservancy on Sunday at 3:00pm for what will surely be a fascinating walking tour.

Here’s the lowdown from the Conservancy’s Flavorpill page:

Do you love the hit movie and want to know more about the locations where it was filmed? If so, join two film experts on Sunday, August 30 from 3 – 6 p.m. for a tour of some of the sites. Harry Medved, author of the SoCal movie location guidebook Hollywood Escapes, and Marty Cummins, a key assistant location manager for the film, will host and lead the tour. The tour starts at  Old Bank DVD, 400 S. Main St.

There’s no charge, although donations are welcome. Harry will be selling copies of Hollywood Escapes before and after the tour, with proceeds going directly to the Conservancy.
