Sadly, you can't ride the city's funicular -- Stone and Gosling's characters got special access to Angels Flight, which closed in 2013 -- but here are five other cinematic hot spots you can visit, straight from this Golden Globe-nominated movie. 


Griffith Observatory

The movie's stars dance into the stratosphere at this gorgeous observatory and planetarium. Admission is free, planetarium tickets are $3-$7.
