Filmed on location in downtown Los Angeles, the backdrop for "Metal and Monsters" is the historic 2,000 seat Los Angeles Theatre. Constructed in 1930, Charlie Chaplin helped fund the completion of the building so it would be ready to premiere his film City Lights in January of 1931. After closing its doors in 1994, the Los Angeles Theatre sat vacant for many years until serving as a film and television location for productions including "Man on The Moon," Charlie's Angels," "Mad Men," and "The Lords of Salem."
