Ennis House Tour: Explore Hollywood’s Favorite Home

Our next tour is a special home that has been closed to tour goers for many years. The Ennis House is among the handful of homes that Frank Lloyd Wright designed in Los Angeles that use the Mayan Textile blocks. The home is a concrete labyrinth that is as close as anyone will come to calling an Ancient Mayan Temple home. Of course Hollywood would take notice…

This exclusive tour brings you the home that has hosted its fair share of movie cameras and has played home to many famous and some infamous characters. The first movie filmed at the Ennis House, 1933’s “Female”, started the trend for such notable movies as House on Haunted Hill (1959), Day of the Locust (1975), David Lynch’s Twin Peaks series and his movie Mulholland Drive, it was even featured in cartoon representation on the tv series, South Park.

Our favorite, and we think most memorable, just celebrated its 30 year anniversary. Blade Runner (1982) depicts Los Angeles in 2019 as a dystopic future that helped set the stage for the “neo-noir” film genre.

Currently owned and restored by billionaire Ronald Burkle, how can you pass up the chance to see this amazing piece of Los Angeles history?
