History


Description

Griffith Park in Hollywood is an abandoned quarry. Bronson Caverns is an unspectacular, manmade tunnel in this quarry. The quarry was abandoned and the whole area became a park. The reason why this page exists is simply the fact that this "cave" is one of the most often used film locations. So it is definitely a weird sight for movie enthusiasts.
