Remembering the 6th Street Viaduct with its best moments in film history

Now that Mayor Garcetti has sealed the deal with a sultry slow jam PSA, the time has come for the 6th Street Viaduct demolition. While we're wiping away our nostalgic tears, and avoiding the 101 shut down for 40 whole hours, it seems only right to take a moment and remember some of the bridge's finest moments in cinema. 

That's where Vashi Nedomansky enters with the assist: the LA-based film editor posted a commemorative montage on his Vimeo page to pay tribute to the city's longest and most iconic bridge.

The video does a pretty good job of covering the full gamut of the viaduct's place in film history, from newer movies like Drive and The Dark Night Rises, to classics like To Live and Die in L.A. and Grease. Biggest takeaway: if you wanted to film a car chase in LA, the 6th Street Viaduct was the place to do it.

Have a watch, and share your favorite memories with us while we're all trapped inside for the next few days, waiting for the freeway to re-open.

What about The Core! While wildly unrealistic a Space Shuttle landing at the foot of the bridge was AWESOME!!!!
