Echo Park

Aug 29th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One location that I have wanted to stalk ever since June 2012, when I wrote my post about MacArthur Park from New Girl (which you can read here), was the similar-looking Echo Park in L.A.’s Echo Park neighborhood.  Sadly though, my efforts were thwarted for over a year due to an extensive restoration project that was taking place on the premises.  The property eventually reopened two months ago and I was absolutely chomping at the bit to stalk it, and finally managed to do just that […]



Brookside Park from Marilyn Monroe’s Photo Shoot with the White Sox

Mar 28th, 2013 | By | Category: Marilyn Monroe Locations

Back in February, while doing research for my post about the Rainbow Bar and Grill, where my girl Miss Marilyn Monroe went on her first date with Joe DiMaggio, I came across a blurb in the book The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe which stated that the starlet had first caught Joltin’ Joe’s eye via a photo shoot she had done with the Chicago White Sox in 1951. The blurb mentioned that the shoot had taken place at none other than Brookside Park in […]



Runyon Canyon Park from “The Hills”

Mar 8th, 2012 | By | Category: The Hills Filming Locations

A few years ago, after my good friend Nat happened to spot Runyon Canyon Park pop up in an episode of fave reality series The Hills, she sent me an email asking if I had ever stalked the place.  And while I had long known that the locale was not only a big-time celebrity hangout, but also a popular filming location, because I am not a fan of hiking (or working out in general, if we are really being honest here), I had never added […]



Buckland Auction House from “Charmed”

Mar 7th, 2011 | By | Category: Charmed Filming Locations, The Hills Filming Locations

 
I am taking a break from my wedding blogging once again today in order to write about a locale that I stalked this past Thursday evening while on my way to dinner in Downtown Los Angeles – the fictional Buckland Auction House where Prue Halliwell (aka my girl Shannen Doherty) worked during the first two seasons of the television series Charmed.  Fellow stalker Chas, from the It’sFilmedThere website, tracked this location down – along with pretty much every other locale that ever appeared on the […]



The Electric Fountain from “Clueless”

Jan 10th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Two weekends ago while doing some stalking in the Beverly Hills area, I dragged the Grim Cheaper out to the corner of Wilshire and North Santa Monica Boulevards to finally, finally stalk the fountain where Cher Horowitz (aka Alicia Silverstone) realized her true feelings for her former stepbrother Josh (aka Paul Rudd) in fave movie Clueless.  I was clued in – pun intended – to this location two years ago by a fellow stalker who had visited the fountain while vacationing in Southern California […]



Gas Works Park from “10 Things I Hate About You”

Nov 19th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another location that I stalked while visiting the Pacific Northwest this past May – and yes, there are still quite a few of them that I have yet to blog about – was Seattle’s famously unique Gas Works Park, the spot where Patrick Verona (aka Heath Ledger) took Kat Stratford (aka Julia Stiles) to play a game of paintball in the 1999 movie 10 Things I Hate About You.  I found this location, as well as countless other 10 Things I Hate About You locations, […]



Will Rogers Memorial Park from “90210”

Jul 6th, 2010 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

As I mentioned yesterday, my fiancé and I spent quite a bit of last weekend making up for lost time, so to speak, by catching up on all of the stalking that I had been putting off over the past few months while my dad was ill.  The location that I was most excited about seeing in person was Will Rogers Memorial Park in Beverly Hills, which was the spot where Annie Wilson (aka Shenae Grimes) and Liam Court (aka Matt Lanter) took a dip […]



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 […]



Farnsworth Park

May 19th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

My favorite movie of all time has got to be Dirty Dancing. I’ve loved the coming-of-age film ever since I was about 13 years old.  Oh, how I wanted to be Baby!    Growing up, I made my best guy friend practice doing “the lift” with me everytime we were in a swimming pool.  LOL   And, like Baby, I could never seem to get it right!   It has long been my location dream to one day travel to Pembroke, Virgina to stalk Mountain Lake Resort, the hotel where most of the filming […]
