Culver City, California: Film Strip USA Monument

Despite its title, this is not a shrine to the obsolete Film Strip technology once used in schools. It's a monument to Culver City's past as a movie production center.

Film Strip USA Monument

Film Strip USA Monument

Film Strip U.S.A. is a stainless steel monument created by Natalie Krol, made to look like three giant interwoven strips of film. The sculpture was dedicated on November 11, 1981. A plaque tells you about the monument, but it's so weathered that all you can read is its title.

Barely visible on the plaque is Culver City's old nickname, "The Heart of Screenland." The city was home to some of California's early movie studios.
