Long Description:
Shortly after "Bumblebee" morphs into a contemporary car, Sam and Mikaela find themselves at the Griffith Observatory. From this spot, they watch the arrival of the Autobots. After members of the group are captured, the remaining Autobots discuss their strategy.

"Initially, the owners of Griffith Observatory were reluctant to allow the crew of Transformers to film there, as it was undergoing a major renovation at the time. However, they relented, as Susan Bay, a relative of director Michael Bay, and her husband, Leonard Nimoy, made substantial contributions to the funding of Griffith."--from
