The Alhambra from “NCIS”

May 26th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

Sometimes you go years wondering about a location only to find out that it is right in your own backyard.  For what seemed like ages, I had wanted to track down the United States Criminal Investigative Service office from NCIS.  I had a feeling that the series used two different structures – one for establishing shots and one for on location exterior filming – and it turns out I was right.  While watching a scene that took place outside of NCIS headquarters in the Season […]



Fosselman’s Ice Cream from “Phantasm”

Oct 14th, 2014 | By | Category: Movie Locations

When I was a little girl, my grandma would regularly take me out for an afterschool treat at our local ice cream parlor.  I cherished those trips, and now the memories of them, and was absolutely devastated when the parlor closed down about 15 years ago only to be replaced by a gift store.  So when I came across this Freddy in Space posting about an old time ice cream shop still in operation – one that is a filming location, no less – I […]



The “Thirteen Days” House

Sep 8th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

While I mentioned last week that today’s blog would be most likely be about the Cabo San Lucas rocks where Jennifer Aniston posed for her recent Jennifer Aniston Perfume advertisement, I’ve actually decided to postpone that post until a later date and instead write about a location that can be found right here in Los Angeles – the supposed Washington, DC-area home where top presidential aide Kenny O’Donnell (aka Kevin Costner) lived with his family in the 2000 movie Thirteen Days.  I found this location […]



Bun ‘N Burger Restaurant from “An American Summer”

I must apologize in advance for today’s fairly short blog post as I just got back from spending pretty much the entire day (over seven hours – not kidding!) on the set of CSI: Miami yet again.  And while I promise to write a detailed post about my experiences there in the very near future, I’ve unfortunately gotta keep this particular column short and sweet.  So, without further ado . . . a few weeks ago Mike, from MovieShotsLA, took the day off from work […]



The “Liar Liar” Towing Yard

Feb 24th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A few weeks ago, Mike, from MovieShotsLA, and I spent an entire day stalking in and around the Malibu area.  But before actually heading west to the ‘Bu, Mike made a little surprise pit stop in Alhambra so that the two of us could stalk the towing yard that appeared in fave comedy Liar Liar.  Mike had actually told me about the yard, which is called Henry’s Towing in real life, the first time we met and even though I had long been dying to […]
