Located less than an hour from the studio zone, also known as the thirty-mile zone, The Fillmore on Central offers an ideal filming location for movies, television, music videos and photoshoots. With the flexibility and capacity to accommodate shoots of varying sizes, scopes and needs, the exterior and interior have been beautifully restored to maintain the exquisite original details. As a former church, the historic building is the perfect backdrop for period pieces and shoots in need of classic Mission-style architecture. Inside, spaces have been updated to offer a more timeless, clean canvas that can be styled to play up the property’s history, while also being adaptable enough to provide a more modern backdrop. With indoor and outdoor spaces, and the ability to hold up to 500, the entire property has updated power capabilities, high speed WI-FI and is fully air-conditioned.

Design highlights include:

  • Classic 1920s Mission-style architecture carefully restored in 2020
  • 4,500 square foot landscaped courtyard with natural grass and fireplace
  • Architectural details such as sculpted columns, archways and authentic black Mission-style doors capped with stone scrollwork
  • 8,000 square foot Sanctuary with 40-foot lofted, hand-painted exposed timber ceilings, classic chandeliers and original refurbished oak hardwood floors
  • Thoughtfully preserved, original 20-foot stained-glass medallion that rises above the altar
  • 4,000 square foot event space beneath The Sanctuary with restored columns, expansive mirrors and glossy, ebony concrete tiled floor

The Sanctuary and our outdoor courtyard, The Central, are also wonderful options for fine arts events and exhibitions, with a clean palette and ample square footage to allow for a natural flow of traffic.  Our onsite caterer can also work with you to develop a special menu of passed hors d’oeuvres and light bites for your special event should you wish to serve food.
