    I'm gonna sound like a total idiot for asking, but does anyone know the name of the location underneath the bridge, where Bumblebee was captured after saving Sam and Mikaela from an untimely death. I keep calling it a Ravine or a Gully, but that's probably incorrect.

    ...

    *West Side Story Voice* Under the highway.

    It's the classic concrete "river" where water drains off during storms.

    :inquisiti  Arg, West Side Story, how I loathe thee.

    Right, gotcha, Classic Concrete River. It honestly has no name, apparently.

    Dang.

    Technically, it's the Los Angeles River. Due to severe and constant flooding, the Army Corps of Engineers completely encased the riverbanks and riverbed in concrete in the 1930s.

    Ahhh, Strangers, Strangers, your knowledge is astounding and helpful for one who finds herself befuddled by such a question as one poised above at #1 (and obviously cannot Utlize Google to the best of its abilities).


    Thank U, ever so much.

    Nope, but the OP asked for the proper name. Neither movie reality nor actual reality was specified.
