Completed in 1928, the Greystone Mansion is a piece of Hollywood history. Originally given to the son of an oil tycoon, the property changed hands until it was on the National Register of Historic Places.

The American Film Institute leased the property for $1 a year from 1965 to 1982, during which time several films were shot here.

David Lynch shot scenes for Eraserhead at this location, as were scenes from the Coen Bros. fllm The Big Lebowski.

P.T. Anderson refurbished the bowling alley in the basement for the climax of the film There Will Be Blood. Interestingly, the film was a fictionalized version of Upton Sinclair's book Oil!, which is based on the life of the oil tycoon (Edward L. Doheny) who built the property.
