The Inspiration for the “Annie” Orphanage

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

My movie obsession began at a young age.  I can pretty much pinpoint it to 1982 when Annie premiered.  I was hooked on the musical from the start.  I watched it over and over and over, eventually wearing out the VHS copy that my parents bought me.  Its locations have also served as a longtime fascination.  Ever since taking my second Warner Bros. tour in 2008, I have known that the Hudson St. Home for Girls, aka the orphanage in the film, could be found […]

The Cat & Fiddle

Feb 10th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

We’ll always have the Cat & Fiddle.  Or so Angelinos thought.  Sadly, the historic restaurant closed its doors this past December.  When news of the impending shuttering hit the blogosphere in late October, I became desperate to stalk the eatery – especially once I read via several online news outlets that it had appeared in Casablanca (though, due to the fact that the 1942 classic was filmed pretty much solely at Warner Bros. Studios, I had my doubts as to the authenticity of the claims).  […]

George’s Side Kicks Shoe Factory from “Father of the Bride”

Jul 8th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another Father of the Bride location that fellow stalker Chas, from the ItsFilmedThere website, tracked down recently was the Side Kicks shoe factory owned by George Banks (aka Steve Martin) in the flick.  And while I had been absolutely dying to stalk the place for what seemed like ages, I just could not seem to figure out where on earth it was located.  Then last month Chas managed to get into contact with several of the movie’s crew members, one of whom not only remembered the exact address of the […]

Burlesque Lounge from “Burlesque”

Feb 25th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A couple of months ago, I dragged the Grim Cheaper out to see Burlesque and, because of all of the bad reviews the movie was generating, I did not have very high hopes that either of us would enjoy it much.  As it turns out, though, I could NOT have been more wrong!  It is a highly entertaining romp which boasts fabulous musical numbers, sparkling and intricately-designed costumes, and incredibly beautiful sets that made me want to hop right into the movie screen.  I LOVED, […]

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 […]
