I need help from some wonderful, observant Los Angeles resident. Please look at these pictures and see if you recognize this building, street, surrounding landmarks, general area, anything!

This is from an episode of Charlie's Angels (1976). I like tracking down filming locations for stuff and I'm dying to know where this place is (or was). The sign says Trojan Bowl and I believe it was an AMF alley. Probably my best bet is someone recognizing the tall building in picture 5.

If you can give me any clues you're my new best friend!

The building in picture 5 looks like it is down the street from that address. It is from the church:
