Beeman Park from “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”

Feb 22nd, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I often get asked if I think that someday down the road I might run out of places that I am passionate about stalking.  That is like asking if I will ever tire of shopping!  The answer is a definitive no!  As long as movies and TV shows continue to be made, this girl will continue a’stalking, passionately so!  Heck, even if Hollywood did cease churning out new films and television series, my To-Stalk List would remain full.  I am constantly discovering new-to-me productions that […]

Westfield Culver City from “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”

Nov 24th, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Some filming locations are maddeningly elusive.  One that remained a thorn in my side for ages was the mall where Janey Glenn (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Lynne Stone (Helen Hunt) shopped in Girls Just Want to Have Fun, which, for those who haven’t been paying attention over the years, is one of my all-time favorite movies.  Thanks to some help from my friends Owen, from the When Write Is Wrong blog, and Michael, of The Brady Bunch’s Golden Spoon fame, I was finally able to […]

The California Bank Building from “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”

Jun 3rd, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Since we’re on the subject of Girls Just Want to Have Fun, I thought I would blog about another locale from the movie that I recently hit up – downtown L.A.’s California Bank Building, which masked as the Dance TV (aka DTV) studio in the 1985 flick.  A couple of years back, Chas, from the It’sFilmedThere website, managed to track down the location via a helpful crewmember, but because nothing about the structure matched up to what was shown onscreen, I was never sold on […]

The “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” Park

Jun 2nd, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Today’s post was a true labor of love – one that required stalking a location three separate times and a massive amount of help from a fellow stalker named Michael.  While most of the locales from the 1985 movie Girls Just Want to Have Fun (one of my all-time faves) have been tracked down and detailed on this blog, one that I have long wondered about is the park where portions of the dance practice montage sequence took place.  As luck would have it, I […]

The Georgian Ballroom from “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”

Mar 30th, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Had you asked me last week, I would have told you that I was an expert on both Pasadena and its filming history.  But something happened on Wednesday afternoon that rocked me to my stalking core.  While writing a blog post for Los Angeles magazine, I got on a bit of a Girls Just Want to Have Fun kick and decided to attempt to track down a few of its unknown locations, one of which was the Lakeview Country Club where Natalie Sands’ (Holly Gagnier) […]

Lila’s Apartment Building on Dexter

Sep 30th, 2009 | By | Category: TV Locations

A few months ago, my fiancé and I started watching the Showtime television series Dexter and I have to say that it didn’t take very long for the two of us to become completely and totally obsessed with it.  So, as I’m sure you can probably imagine, I’ve also become pretty obsessed lately with the Seeing Stars website page that catalogs the many filming locations featured on the show.  In fact, I can’t even watch an episode of Dexter  now without having my laptop next […]

Jeff Malene’s House From Girls Just Want To Have Fun

Aug 3rd, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Got a call from fellow stalker Chas last week, who told me that he had finally received his Girls Just Want To Have Fun  Netflix rental in the mail.  Chas was calling me up to ask if I wanted any other locations from the movie found – besides SJP’s ubiquitous apartment building, of course.  I believe my exact answer to his question was “Um, yeah, ALL OF THEM!”  LOL  So, this past week Chas set about locating every single GJWTHF  filming location.  And I am happy to report that he […]
