Does anyone else get that satisfying feeling when a landmark is identified?

Could be the Wiltern Theater on Wilshire Boulevard ? (eastern side of the building)

I think you're right, Fido
I'm convinced that the Wiltern theatre is in the game

Hi guys! I know im late to the party, it really is impressive all the work you guys have put in to this topic! One strange thing i've noticed is that fire stations seem to be non existant. Has anyone seen any indication at all that there will even be a fire department in this game? I would assume there would be, as every GTA in the past had one. It just seems strange that in all we have seen of the game so far, not one person has mentioned seeing a station/truck/firefighter.

The arch, moulding & metalwork above Michael's head is from Paramount Pictures studio on Melrose Drive.

No doubt, North Yankton is just a place on the map.

So yes, it's surely on the map because Weasel news talks about the North Yankton in the Blaine country area.

I call bullsh*t.

Your sig is now 700% stranger due to what happened yesterday.

Bloody good find, that does look just like the Paramount Pictures gate

Edit: Not to mention that the building over his other shoulder is clearly a sound stage.

Edit 2: Also, at waist height, there's a barrier that's pretty much standard in those sorts of locations.

They actually included it! But where the hell could it be? By the looks of it not in Vinewood. Maybe Koreatown? If it's as big in real life they must be hiding it pretty well.

EDIT: Actually, I think it's right here:

Will we be seeing Los Angeles Plaza Historic District in GTA V? . In Real Life it is adjacent to Union Station which i think a forum member or two found in a Rockstar released Screenshot.

Could be the place Mrthingus.

If we can make out this water tower, we can call it confirmed.

Looks like it could be near the docks, it sort of looks that way. On the other hand, you have all those telephone wires which means it could also be in East Los Santos.

I hope they reveal North Yankton then finally we can stop arguing weather North Yankton is somewhere in Canada , Alaska, or somewhere around Mt.Chilliad.

I think there's a better pic of that sign.
Pretty sure it's the image of Franklin wearing a light peachy colored shirt with white sleeves.
There are a couple gang members being arrested in the background.
I'm on my phone ATM so can't dig it up for you.

Ditto. But R* will probably be R* and not show anything of it and tease us up until we actually find it ourselves...

It's not likely to be there, you can see that block in the Gameplay Trailer @ 1:57-59. It's just looks like a bunch of apartments. That is just east of the Viper Room and the Sunset Tower Hotel. Not sure where the studios would be though.

That's what i don't understand, Canada isn't even remotely close to L.A. Maybe there are different rules in GTA universe.

I realized it just a few minutes after uploading the picture. I'm still going with Koreatown somewhere.
