What is it actually, in real life?
An actual warehouse, but nowhere near Louisiana. Q.
Where can I find it in real life?
This warehouse is about where you'd expect to find it: in L.A.'s warehouse district.
It's located at 1327 Palmetto Street, on the northeast side of downtown Los Angeles., at the northwest corner of Palmetto and Santa Fe Ave.
This one is easy to spot - it reads "ACME Wiping Materials Co." across its front. The door that they open is the one with a sign reading "Receiving Department" above it.
Hollywood does a surprising amount of film-making in this warehouse
district; so much so that a surprising number of the old buildings have
signs posted reading "Filming location for rent". (Not long
before they filmed this scene, the 2014 movie "Walk of Shame" was
filming in the same area.)

too close to the heart of Skid Row. So exercise reasonable caution. ]

How the heck did you figure out where it was?
tracking down locations over the years, I've spent a lot of time in the
warehouse district, since they often film there. While many of the
industrial buildings there are faceless old structures, a few stand
out. Some of them, like this one, still bear a sign painted on
This one reads "ACME Wiping Materials Co.",
a memorable name, which can be seen if you slow down the scene where
the police car pulls up to the warehouse. So it wasn't hard to
