A haunting and fascinating time capsule of Los Angeles in 1946

I added an evocative soundtrack and slowed down the footage (supplied by Getty). This was actually process footage that was filmed for “Down to Earth.” in April, 1946 and was captured by a train or a bus moving very rapidly. But now with the images slowed down you can now see the movie "Gilda" playing at the RKO theater (01:30) a shot of The Pacific Seas Clifton's Cafeteria (03:34), on S. Olive. , "The Outlaw" playing at Music Hall theater (07:51), and The Nat King Cole trio playing (09:00) at some theater. I also believe that's Westlake Park (MacArthur Park) at 03:22.

I wanted to create a dream like sequence and ethereal tone for this clip, rather then the big band music I've used in the past. I believe the result is quite chilling - especially knowing that so many of these people and businesses no longer exist.
