Orange Army-Navy from “That Thing You Do!”

Jan 6th, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another day, another That Thing You Do! locale.  It is one of my all-time favorite movies, after all!  In early December, the Grim Cheaper and I found ourselves in the O.C. and decided to head out to Old Towne Orange to do some Christmas shopping.  While perusing the charming streets and boutiques, I was reminded of a few spots from the 1995 film that I had stalked, but had yet to blog about, namely the Starbucks/Wells Fargo where Chad (Giovanni Ribisi) broke his arm, which […]



The Old Towne Orange Starbucks from “That Thing You Do!”

Jan 4th, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

“We met at Starbucks.  Not at the same Starbucks, but we saw each other at different Starbucks across the street from each other.”  So says Meg Swan (Parker Posey) about meeting her husband, Hamilton (Michael Hitchcock), in the 2000 comedy Best in Show.  (You can watch the hilarious scene here.)  Meg might well have been describing the two outposts of the coffee giant in Old Towne Orange, which are situated across the plaza from each other.  As fate would have it, both are filming locations!  […]



Villapiano’s from “That Thing You Do!”

Jan 27th, 2014 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One That Thing You Do! location that I had been trying to track down for what seemed like ages was the red-boothed Italian restaurant that stood in for Villapiano’s, the “spaghetti place out by the airport,” in the 1996 flick.  Thankfully, a couple of months ago, fellow stalker Owen, of the When Write Is Wrong blog, tracked down and put me in touch with one of the movie’s crew members who informed me that the eatery I was searching for was the now-defunct Palomino Club […]



The 90210 Pilot Church

Feb 6th, 2009 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

A few days ago I sent Mike, from MovieShotsLA, a screen capture of the church featured in the pilot episode of Beverly Hills, 90210. I had a hunch he might know where it was located – and, sure enough, he did! He immediately called me and said “That’s the Spiderman church!” as it was also used in the filming of Spiderman 3. God, he’s good! St. Brendan Church – or as Mike and I like to call it, the “pilot church” – was built […]



That Thing You Stalk!

Jul 25th, 2008 | By | Category: Movie Locations

That Thing You Do has always been one of my very favorite movies. Liv Tyler could not have been more adorable in that movie! The scene where she is running down the street screaming with joy while listening to the Oneders song on the radio for the first time is one of my favorite scenes in all of moviedom! And I do love me some Tom Everett Scott, too. So when I read on Pasadena’s Filming Website that a house on Prospect Boulevard […]
