Lincoln Heights Jail is a reportedly haunted former jail building in the Lincoln Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles, California.[1] It closed in 1965. In 1951, the unprovoked beating of seven prisoners occurred in the prison on what came to be known as “Bloody Christmas”. The novel L.A. Confidential and subsequent film, part of which was filmed there, was inspired by the incident.

Since 1979, the building has been the home of the Bilingual Foundation of the Arts. In addition to LA Confidential, it has been used as a set in other films. The 1984 horror movie Nightmare on Elm Street filmed the boiler room scenes here. It was used to film part of the music video “Feeling This” by Blink-182, as well as portions the notorious, award-winning independent film Night Train [1], produced by nearby San Pedro, California resident Anthony “Twan” Huljev,  which won awards for Best Cinematography and Best New Director at the 2000 FantaSporto International Film Festival in Oporto, Portugal. The site was also used for filming sections of Lady Gaga’s hit single “Telephone” and 5 Seconds of Summer’s single “Good Girls Are Bad Girls”.
