The 2009 release "(500) Days of Summer" made use of many places in Downtown. The sweet ending where Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is interviewing for a job and after finally letting go of Summer (Zooey Deschanel) meets Autumn (Minka Kelly) was filmed at the Bradbury and clearly features the building's unique architectural interior.

The building even was transplanted to New York City to become the School for the Performing Arts in the opening credits of the NBC television series "Fame" which premiered in 1982. A faux subway entrance was placed across the street of the Bradbury and the building's name over the arched entrance was replaced with a sign for 'School of the Arts'.
