Photos: L.A.'s Iconic Disney Hall Went Full 'Game Of Thrones' Last Night
Winter is here, at least at downtown Los Angeles' Walt Disney Concert Hall. The Frank Gehry-designed building went full Game of Thrones Wednesday night, as images and video were projected on the building in honor of the HBO show's Season 7 premiere. Westeros took a temporary place in the L.A. skyline, with the imagery dancing across the iconic building's sweeping, curvilinear facade.
