Of all the filming locations scattered around Los Angeles, one towers above them all. Literally. It’s Fox Plaza in Century City, better known by its fictional name “Nakatomi Plaza”, the setting of John McTiernan’s 1988 classic Die Hard.

The building can be viewed from all across Los Angeles and has changed surprisingly little in the 30 years since the film was released. How little has it changed? Well, to promote the 30th anniversary Blu-ray release of the film, Fox invited members of the press to take a Die Hard-specific tour of the building. And it. Was. Awesome.
