The Department has identified pay parking lots and facilities that have approved rates and fees specific to that facility. The list of these facilities has been incorporated in the Film Permit Fees as “special facilities". Anyone desiring to film, photograph or any activity related should contact the Park Film Office (323) 644-6220 before contacting the special facility. The Park Film Office assesses a $150 administrative fee to coordinate the issuance of a permit through Film LA, Inc.

The parking or facility rates and fees charged to companies that want to park, film or photograph at these locations are the same as what is charged to the general public. There are some facilities that have film specific fees.
