The Millennium Biltmore Hotel’s Gold Room from “Beverly Hills, 90210”

Mar 21st, 2016 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

Some locations hit you like a ton of bricks.  Today’s locale was one of those spots.  For ages, I had been trying to track down the supposed Las Vegas casino prominently featured in the Season 4 episode of Beverly Hills, 90210 titled “And Did It . . . My Way.”  I was fairly certain that production had not actually travelled to Sin City for the shoot, but I could not for the life of me figure out where filming had taken place.  Then last year, […]

The L.A. Hotel Downtown from “How to Get Away with Murder”

Jan 20th, 2016 | By | Category: TV Locations

Sometimes while viewing a television show or movie, I become absolutely transfixed by a location.  So much so that I have to pause what I’m watching and track down the locale right then and there.  It happens quite often actually – more often than I’d like to admit – and drives the Grim Cheaper up the wall.  Such was the case with the hotel where Eve Rothlow (Famke Janssen) stayed while in town to help Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) in the Season 2 premiere of […]

Casey’s Irish Pub

Jun 22nd, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One location that I have been wanting to stalk for what seems like ages now is Casey’s Irish Pub (aka Casey’s Bar & Grill), a historic Downtown Los Angeles watering hole that has appeared in COUNTLESS movie and television productions throughout its more than thirty year history.  I first found out about the bar over six months ago while doing some online research on locales featured in the first X-Files movie and the place has been high up on my “To Stalk” list ever since.  […]

The “FlashForward” FBI Headquarters Building

May 21st, 2010 | By | Category: TV Locations

I was thoroughly disappointed to learn about the cancellation of the ABC television series FlashForward earlier this week, as the show was one of my favorites of the 2009 Fall Season.  What makes the cancellation most heartbreaking, though, for me at least, is the fact that because the season finale was filmed long before the series was canceled, producers did not get a chance to wrap-up the show’s central mystery.  I am afraid that unless a different network purchases FlashForward (which does happen on occasion), […]

The “Pretty Woman”/”(500) Days of Summer” Fountain and Park

Apr 16th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another Downtown Los Angeles location that my fiancé and I stalked this past weekend was the water fountain and park which appeared in both fave movie Pretty Woman and not so fave movie (500) Days of Summer.  I discovered this location way back in September of 2007 when I was called to serve as a juror on a four day trial at the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center in Downtown L.A.  I’m glad to know jury duty is at least good for something.  😉 

As […]

The “(500) Days of Summer” Bench

Apr 15th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another Downtown Los Angeles location that my fiancé and I stalked this past weekend was the famous bench from 2009’s indie hit (500) Days of Summer.  A few weeks ago, fellow stalker Eileen emailed me to tell me of the bench’s location and to send me the above photograph of herself and her roommate taken while there.  I should mention here that I didn’t especially care for (500) Days of Summer.  Actually, it’d be much closer to the truth to say that I didn’t like […]

The Probable “Beat It” Diner, Part II

Mar 30th, 2010 | By | Category: Michael Jackson Locations

This past Friday, after yet another doctor appointment in Downtown L.A., my dad and I stopped by the Monte Carlo Restaurant, aka the (probable) diner which appeared in Michael Jackson’s 1983 music video for his hit song “Beat It”.  Our mission that day – and yes, we chose to accept it 😉 – was two-fold.  First, I wanted to take more interior photographs of the place in the hopes that I would be able to find some small element which matched what appeared in the […]

The (Probable) Warehouse from Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” Video

Mar 26th, 2010 | By | Category: Michael Jackson Locations

Another day, another “Beat It” locale!  After tracking down the probable diner that appeared in “Beat It”, I set my sights on locating the warehouse which was also featured in Michael Jackson’s iconic 1983 music video.  And I really have to say a big thank you to my friend and fellow stalker David in Spain before I go any further with this post because had he not informed me that the “Beat It” diner was located somewhere on Fifth Street in Downtown Los Angeles’ skid […]

The Alley from Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” Music Video

Mar 25th, 2010 | By | Category: Michael Jackson Locations

Last week, Mike, from MovieShotsLA, stumbled upon an article about Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” music video written by a journalist named Sylvie Simmons who was actually on the set with the pop star during the legendary filming.  The article, which was published in a 1983 issue of “Creem Magazine”, begins with the following sentences, “Downtown between the Pacific American Fish Co. and the Hotel St. Agnes Hospitality Kitchen there’s an alley. Cars block each end, no escape. And, silhouetted in the car headlights, two rival […]

The Firehouse from “Ghostbusters”

Feb 12th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

This past weekend while doing some stalking in Downtown L.A. I dragged my fiancé out to see an oft-used filming location that has long been at the top of my “To-Stalk” list.  That location is known as Fire Station #23, a real life former working fire house that served as the offices of Dr. Raymond Stantz (aka Dan Aykroyd), Dr. Peter Venkman (aka Bill Murray), Dr. Egon Spengler (aka Harold Ramis), and Winston Zeddmore (aka Ernie Hudson) in the 1984 movie Ghostbusters.  And as fate […]
