The Inspiration for the “Annie” Orphanage

Jul 22nd, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

My movie obsession began at a young age.  I can pretty much pinpoint it to 1982 when Annie premiered.  I was hooked on the musical from the start.  I watched it over and over and over, eventually wearing out the VHS copy that my parents bought me.  Its locations have also served as a longtime fascination.  Ever since taking my second Warner Bros. tour in 2008, I have known that the Hudson St. Home for Girls, aka the orphanage in the film, could be found […]



Ashley’s Apartment from “Just My Luck”

Jul 20th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I do not have the best taste in movies and am the first to admit it.  Case in point – Just My Luck, a 2006 Lindsay Lohan romcom that I absolutely love.  Have I lost you already?  If so, it’s understandable.  But I find the film adorable.  I’ve seen it about a hundred times and never tire of it.  Part of the appeal is the fact that it takes place – and was largely shot – in New York.  (Some filming also took place in […]



The “You’ve Got Mail” Breakup Restaurant

Jul 18th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Locations from the movie You’ve Got Mail have been well-documented online on countless sites.  I chronicled quite a few of them on mine – in a December 2007 post, as well as in follow-up posts that you can read here and here.  One spot that hasn’t been mentioned anywhere and one that I was desperate to find was the café where Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan) and Frank Navasky (Greg Kinnear) so amicably broke up in the 1998 comedy.  So I got to work in tracking […]



The British Consulate from “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”

Jul 15th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Much of my free time as of late has been spent tracking down missing locations from Jumpin’ Jack Flash.  Ever since writing my post on the apartment where Terry Dolittle (Whoopi Goldberg) lived in the 1986 comedy, I have been just a wee bit consumed with finding other spots featured in the flick.  So much so that I even purchased director Penny Marshall’s 2012 autobiography in the hopes that it might shed some light on the subject.  One locale that I did not need to […]



Terry’s Apartment from “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”

Jul 6th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I’ve made no secret over the years of my love for Jumpin’ Jack Flash.  (You can read the posts I’ve done on the 1986 comedy’s locations here, here, here, and here.)  Whoopi Goldberg is literally perfection in her role as zany New York bank employee Terry Dolittle and I pretty much go around quoting her and the other characters on a regular basis (“Get Larry, the heavy-set guard!  Get Larry, the heavy-set guard!”).  So when a fellow stalker named Mick emailed me in July 2013 […]



Jules’ House from “The Intern”

Jun 8th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

For our recent Big Apple vacation, the Grim Cheaper and I took a red eye into New York, leaving Palm Springs at 11 p.m. and landing in NYC at 6:30 a.m.  Working off zero sleep, we were obviously exhausted upon arrival (me especially considering the copious amounts of calming drugs I ingested to curtail my flight anxiety), but obviously were not able to check into our hotel at such an early hour.  So what else were we to do, but head out for some stalking?  […]



NoMo Kitchen from “The Other Woman”

May 27th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

My favorite movie of 2014 was The Other Woman.  The romcom may have been heavily panned by critics, but I loved everything about it.  The Grim Cheaper and I saw it in theatres shortly after it premiered and then I purchased a copy as soon as it came out on DVD and have proceeded to watch it copious times since.  I’m addicted!  The flick was lensed primarily in New York and its environs and I, of course, tracked down the vast majority of its locales […]



The Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa from “America’s Sweethearts”

May 11th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Between our trip to New York and dealing with some matters out of state, the Grim Cheaper and I have been away from home for the better part of five weeks.  While most of our traveling has not been for pleasure, I did just recently get to check an item off of my Stalking Bucket List.  While in Nevada last week, we took a bit of a detour and headed out to Henderson to see The Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa, aka the […]



Shakers Family Restaurant from “Old School”

Mar 28th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Today’s locale is another one of those facepalm spots.  For ages, I had been trying to track down the interior of the diner where Mitch (Owen Wilson) and the boys discussed saving their fraternity in the 2003 comedy Old School.  While I had long known that Montrose Bakery & Café (which, sadly, Yelp is reporting has closed) was used as the exterior of the restaurant, the café that portrayed the interior remained a mystery.  Then while watching the flick recently, I spotted something that I […]



Beeman Park from “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”

Feb 22nd, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I often get asked if I think that someday down the road I might run out of places that I am passionate about stalking.  That is like asking if I will ever tire of shopping!  The answer is a definitive no!  As long as movies and TV shows continue to be made, this girl will continue a’stalking, passionately so!  Heck, even if Hollywood did cease churning out new films and television series, my To-Stalk List would remain full.  I am constantly discovering new-to-me productions that […]
