Los Angeles:

Where is this beautiful cathedral?

St. Vincent de Paul Church, Los Angeles, USA
A Roman Catholic parish built in the 1920s and designed by architect Albert C. Martin, Sr. Paid for by local oilman Edward J. Doheny and thus is known colloquially as “the Church of Holy Oils.”
It was dedicated in 1925, it was located in what was then one of the wealthiest sections of the city, on land adjacent to the Stephen Dorsey mansion and Stimson House. It was the second Roman Catholic church in Los Angeles to be consecrated.
The climactic scene of the 1999 film End of Days, featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger’s battle against Satan was filmed in the church. The church’s altar is featured prominently in the film’s final scenes. The church also appears in the movie Constantine. The church was also featured in the Warrant video “The Bitter Pill” (acoustic version), with lead singer Jani Lane performing the song in front of and around the church.
The church was also featured in the Charmed episode “When Bad Warlocks Turn Good”; furthermore the church is visible in the Madonna’s music video of “God Control”, and some parts of it in her video of “Dark Ballet”.
