From 2003 to 2013, the district encompassed the incorporated city of Culver City (a center of film and TV production), and in the Baldwin Hills unincorporated areas such as Ladera Heights, and some of the western neighborhoods within the city of Los Angeles such as Baldwin Hills (neighborhood).

From 1993 to 2013, large parts of the 33rd were in the California's 36th congressional district. The 36th was located in southwestern Los Angeles County and included Manhattan Beach, Torrance and portions of Los Angeles itself. This district was largely dismantled after the 2010 census with the 33rd succeeding the 36th while the current 36th is largely the successor of the old 45th District.
