The “Encino Man” House

Sep 12th, 2014 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Lately, I have been on a retro-movie watching kick.  I think it has something to do with ”The ‘80s” issue of Los Angeles magazine that hit newsstands this past July.  Reading through it got me in the mood to revisit decades past.  So I was thrilled when my buddy Mike, from MovieShotsLA, took me by the residence that served as the Morgan family home in Encino Man (spoiler alert – it’s not actually in Encino!).  I had not seen the 1992 comedy in ages and […]

Mr. Miyagi’s House from “The Karate Kid”

Jan 30th, 2014 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One of the greatest filming location mysteries to ever exist was that of the house where Mr. Miyagi (Pat Morita) lived in the 1984 classic The Karate Kid. It was common knowledge that the residence had been demolished in the late ‘80s, but no stalker had ever been able to track down its former whereabouts – until now that is.  While I had long been aware of the enigma surrounding the locale, I had never actually seen The Karate Kid until two weeks ago.  (Well, […]

Jul 13th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Since I was in the area this past week stalking a wedding venue, I decided to pay a little visit to the strip mall featured in fave romantic comedy Blast from the Past.  In the flick, which opens up in the year 1962, a nuclear-war-fearing Christopher Walken builds a massive fallout shelter for his wife and unborn son directly underneath his suburban home.  When a small plane fortuitously crashes onto his property, Walken fears a bomb has been dropped on America and immediately locks his family in the homemade shelter […]
