Curious about where your favorite TV show or movie was filmed? Challenge Lindsay to find it!
Hi. One of my favorite movies is Flashdance and I wanna see if some of the places where real.
I’d enjoy if you did this.
[...] Challenge Lindsay! [...]
Hi Lindsay! You know I’m a huge fan of your blog–I never thought anyone would like stalking celeb houses and filming locations as much as me! SO here’s a challenging one I’ve been wanting to know for years. Matthew Gray Gubler appeared on Celebrity Ghost Stories and said when he first moved to LA, he lived in an old building right in Hollywood that was super super haunted. I guess it’s a pretty historical, renowned building but not of the ultra famous/expensive caliber. Can you find the building? I have two pictures that I think are good clues that narrow down the area
The link above shows that he is right in front of the Guinness World Record Museum on the Walk of Fame, so the apartment has to be right by there/
I’m curious because I’m moving to LA and want to check out this building and area! This will probably be a piece of cake for you Lindsay, if you don’t know it already
My best guess from the rooftop pic is the Alexa Suites at 1746 N. Cherokee Ave. I’m not entirely sure, though. Did they show the building in the Celebrity Ghost Stories episode?
Hmmm. On CGS it said it was a charming, historical old building in the heart of Hollywood, and MGG was originally just going to live there short term, (which appear to be what Alexa Suites provide). He said it was eerily decrepit hotel but had a Great Expectations sort of charm to it and had an old bell buzzer intercom system in the front. It was built in the 1920s by Paramount to house the actresses they had under contract. When he moved in, (early 2000s I think), he said it was full of a ton of older people that were very eccentric and artsy. He also says the lady who ran the building showed him an old old scrapbook someone had kept over the years with clips and cut outs of actresses that had lived there and gone on to be successful. Im not sure if the pics in the video are it, or just for staging. Here is the video. http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMzc1NDczNjM2.html
what do you think?
Yeah I found the YouTube video online and watched it. Did you look at the Alexa Suites? View matches perfectly to rooftop photo. And building is quite old and charming. The only building I found that was built by Paramount is the Hudson Apartments at 6533 Hollywood Blvd. But the view doesn’t match his photo. Though that building is reported to be haunted. I think the building shown in video wasn’t his actual building. And I also think the names might have been faked. I can’t any Hollywood historian named Richard or a screenwriter named Harry Stewart. I asked one of my stalker friends who knows scads about old Hollywood if he had any ideas.
great! you’re probably right. im going to stalk alexa suites then. if you find anything else, let me know. you are the best!!!
Hi! I recently moved to LA (Hollywood area) but I haven’t much luck seeing celebrities. I found out that my favorite show, Teen Wolf, is currently filming in LA. I would love to know how to go to the set and see some if the cast especially Dylan O’Brien, Holland Roden, and Tyler Posey. Also, I heard that Dylan was making an appearance at B&N located at The Grove. Is this true? I would LOVE your help!
I’m not sure about the Barnes & Noble appearance, but there is a Teen Wolf fan convention happening in L.A. on March 7 and 8. Many of the cast members will be in attendance. http://www.creationent.com/cal/dotw_burbank.html I also have an upcoming celebrity events page on my blog where you can check out celeb events in L.A. – http://www.iamnotastalker.com/upcoming-celebrity-events/
Happy Stalking ,
I issue the challenge to find the house used in the original opening and closing credits of Mama’s Family season 1 and 2 please.
I believe “Family Affair” exteriors were shot at the Wilshire Regent apartments, 10501 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90024.
Ok this is a real challange. In the 60′s TV show Family Affair they showed a building which was the location of the Bill Davis apartment. This showed as a stock shot in many of the program’s first scenes. Can you find the building? It was supposed to be in Manhattan, NY.
I loved that show too! That really is a challenge
Might you know the film location(s) for ‘Eunice’ (TV Movie 1982)) and the location for the house used in Mama’s Family during season 1 and 2 opening and closing credits. I’ve of course read your page at http://www.iamnotastalker.com/2009/04/03/the-mamas-family-house/
A belated Happy New Year! ^-^
So, yesterday I watched (again!) the movie “We need to talk about Kevin”. I looked for the whole movie filming locations, but I failed .
You’ve found lots of filming locations, and I was wondering if you can help me with this one !
Hello Lindsay! I was wondering where did they film, Celebrity Fit Club? They also filmed a Maroon Five video there as well. I have searched and searched, it does not mention it anywhere on the internet! Help! Thank you.
I am pretty sure they film it here http://www.iamnotastalker.com/2010/12/20/adriannas-new-rental-from-90210/
Thank you so much!!! That is it!! I sure appreciate it!
hi I am like a really big fan of Taylor swift and I challenge you to “stalk” her New York apartment I really want to know where she lives exactly (thanks). Also I live in Colorado and I was wondering if you have like any places popular movies were filmed. Thank you.
And i am also going to Seattle and Im a HUGE fan of grey’s anatomy and I was wondering if there was any other places I can “stalk” In Seattle where grey’s anatomy is filmed.
Just back from L.A. and had a fabulous time! Went to the “Punky Brewster” apartment building and it was so surreal. Thank you again for finding it for me! My next challenge has a video that accompanies it. I am also a huge fan of “Knots Landing” (visiting the cul-de-sac was indescribable) and was wondering if you could please find for me the home of the Fisher’s, the couple that illegally adopt Valene Ewing’s twins?
Thank you very much!
Hey Lindsey! I’ve been living in LA for almost 10months now and I’m trying to stalk (just a little bit;)) Robert Downey Jr – I’m a huuuuge fan! Have you ever seen him? If not, I challenge you to stalk him
Not really a challenge, but have you had a chance to check out the documentary Los Angeles Plays Itself? It was made back in 2003, but was finally released on DVD and blu-ray a few weeks ago. The narrator is a bit of a downer about the city and how it has been portrayed in film, but there’s a ton of great information in there. You’ve already posted about many of the locations featured in it, but it might inspire a stalk or two.
Love the website by the way!
Kind of a fun challenge for you. “Married with Children” aired an episode entitled “The Unnatural”. At the end of the episode, Al Bundy is playing centerfield in a softball game set in Illinois (cameo by Ian Ziering as well). However, the research that I’ve done indicates that this was an actual softball game with Married With Children crew, so it’s somewhere in the L.A. area. Would you be able to locate this field? A link to the episode is below. The scene starts at about the 21 minute mark. I’m hoping the mountains in the backdrop of the field, and the yellow building behind the bleachers, would be a good hint.
I’m planing a trip out to LA in a few weeks, doing some location “stalking” and I was wondering if you might be able to help me with this LA/Sherman Oaks location. The location I’m looking for is a “trendy” clothing store that’s in a music video by The Saturdays “What About Us”. I do know a few of the locations that I’am visiting from the video are on Ventura Blvd, so I was thinking, maybe, the store they go into (about :30 into the video) is near The Infield and the House of Billiards on Ventura Blvd. Thanks you so much if you get to this!!
Just to save time looking it up, here’s the video link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6YLi0GNBTk
It’s American Vintage at 14438 Ventura Blvd. in Sherman Oaks.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!! You totally made my day! Thanks again for all your efforts!!
HI! This might really be a tuff one–set the way back machine to the 1980′s and put your “romantic-detective” hat on, ’cause my search is for a location used in the t.v. series “Remington Steele”. Season 2, ep. 28 “Love Among The Steele”. Near the end, a 1936 Auburn Roadster is parked in the middle of an inlaid, circular “courtyard”, with a concrete gazebo in the near background, and a view of L.A. in the distant background. Now, I grew up in L.A. and for the life of me I do not recognize this location. I do remember a Chanel No.5 commercial using this same location many, many years ago. Any “clues” would be greatly appreciated! Of course, the exact location would help me get some much needed sleep! Thx!!!
Hi Lindsay, loved your piece on the Monrovia train station where The Trouble With Angels was partially filmed. Do you have any plans to cover Where Angels Go Trouble Follows? It’s one of my all-time favorites. Thank you
I didn’t – but I will now that you have asked.
