Ambassador Cam, #7


Ambassador Hotel, 11/11/05

It's really happening: The demolition of the historic Ambassador Hotel is accelerating, as a portion of the east wing is now dust.

I've been out of the office, which means I haven't had a chance to take a pic of the building this week. Thanks to Martin of you-are-here.com for sharing this shot. And to Tim McGarry for also dropping a line on Thursday night. LAObserved has a depressing photo as well.

Meanwhile, up until the very end the Ambassador is a popular spot for a movie shoot. And just squeaking in before the demolishing: Emilio Estevez's feature "Bobby," about fictional events at the hotel taking place the night of RFK's assassination. Elijah Wood, Demi Moore, Sharon Stone, Anthony Hopkins, and yes, Lindsay Lohan, star. Production started last week at the hotel.

I knew the the RFK film was being made, but I had no idea they had gotten permission to film any of it in the Ambassador. Jeez, what are they wearing hard hats while they film?
