Randy's Donuts

This is Randy's Donuts in Inglewood California on Route 66. It was built in 1953 as a second location of the Big Donut chain that is now defunct. Although several locations still exist under the names Kindle's Donuts, Donut King II, Dale's Donuts and Bellflower Bagels. Randy's Donuts has been featured in many movies and music videos. It was in the movies Get Shorty, Ironman 2 it also was in Randy Newman's video I Love La, the Red Hot Chili Peppers video Californication (although it is missing the R) it also has been in video games as well as many other videos and movies.
