L.A. Noire film reels and landmarks guide

44. In A Lonely Place

Some distance west from the last reel, you'll find a miniature golf course on El Centro, just south of Santa Monica. Go ahead and drive on in.

Not far from where you entered (assuming you entered from El Centro), there'll be a slight hill leading up to the northeast. Jog up there.

At the top of the hill, you'll see this horseshoe-looking hole. Your next reel is at its center.


45. Where the Sidewalk Ends

From the mini-golf course, follow El Centro north until you can take a left onto Sunset. Look to the north side of the street, and you should see the Palladium Theatre.

Where the Sidewalk Ends is laying just behind the ticket booth. Looks like the projectionist got careless.


46. Gilda

At the triangular intersection of Homewood, Cahuenga and Cole, you'll find an imposing Circle K that looks like this:

Drive around to the back of the station, to where the restrooms are.

Walk into the secluded rear of the station, and you'll find the next reel laying on the ground (probably attached to a restroom key).


47. The Letter

Head over to the Crossroads of the World outdoor mall (near the center of the "O" in Hollywood), and head north along the right side of its main building.

You should see a giant reddish-brown staircase to the north, so go ahead and climb it.

Once you're past the big stairs, keep running north and you'll see a smaller staircase on your right.

Climb it, and you'll find the next reel hiding on the landing.


48. Brute Force

From the last reel's location, head a block or two northeast until you're at the corner of Selma and Schrader. Take Schrader north, and then turn left at the first unmarked street that looks like this:

The street is a dead end overlooking a football field, but there on the pavement at the west end of it is the next reel.


49. Nightmare Alley

Just off Franklin at the northern edge of the map, you'll see a big, red-roofed shopping center. Enter its parking lot as indicated by the arrow below:

Once you're in the lot, head for the western end of the building.

From there, climb up onto the walkway and head around the side of the building to the alleyway.

There, nestled amid a billboard and some dumpsters, is the reel for Nightmare Alley.


50. The Big Sleep

For the final reel, just follow Hollywood Boulevard west. Just before the street ends, you'll notice that the train tracks veer off to the left. Follow them.

The tracks will bring you to a little depot. Head on through; your target is the little water tower that the arrow's pointing to.

Sitting on the ground next to the water tower is the final reel. Go and grab it!

Congratulations! The Hollywoodland Achievement/Trophy should now be yours.

    Had to register just to thank you for this guide, no way was I finding all of these in under 10hrs using the Social Club map. By far the best guide to finding the reels anywhere on internet. Thankyou!!
  • dray - June 2, 2011 5:51 a.m.

    Only created A account to make this comment about youre guide. Well done, really excellent job, I really liked it with the pictures made it rather very easy to find them quickly. Took me maybe a good 2Hours or something to collect them all. Only used the Film reels Guide though. Again well done.

    Am i the only one who thinks the ramshackle farmhouse looks a lot like John Marston's house?
  • thochaos - May 28, 2011 11:31 a.m.

    This was really helpful. I would never have found any of the reels without this guide and it made the last few landmarks extremely easy. Thanks!
  • zer0hvk - May 28, 2011 5:46 a.m.

  • leeloo - May 20, 2011 4:08 a.m.

    Thank you for an awesome guide. Managed to get all landmarks, still working on the film reels.
  • FVDub - May 19, 2011 6:49 p.m.

    It is absolutely incredible that you have made such an awesome guide so soon after the game has come out. THANK YOUR GR!
  • Darkrose2222 - May 19, 2011 6:43 p.m.

    Thanks for this I appreciate it. I am not sure if your aware of this You don't have to crash through gates to get certain items. He will easily hop over the fence even if there is a wire on top of it. I mean of course if you want to have fun you can do so. There are some easier ways to get some of the Items instead of what you are telling people they have to do. But I do love this site so Thanks again.
  • 435 - May 19, 2011 7:51 a.m.

    Many thanks, my friend.
  • elpurplemonkey - May 19, 2011 12:22 a.m.

    I saw that tweet also- you stayed in the office until 3am or so doing this right? That's insane, but thank you very much for it.
  • GamesRadarMikelReparaz - May 18, 2011 6:52 p.m.

    @WonsAuto: Hey, thanks for the support. You can go after this stuff after finishing the game - in fact, the best way to do it is by going into the "Cases" menu and picking Free Roam (which becomes available for each desk as you finish them, and is also great for going after any street-crime cases you didn't get to before).
  • WonsAuto - May 18, 2011 6:25 p.m.

    Another awesome open-world guide by Wikiparez. Can you collect this stuff after beating the main story, or does it have to be before? Also, I saw your Twitter feed early this morning, can't believe you stayed at the office so late to work on this. Your ridiculous work ethic shan't go unappreciated!
