The Original Pantry Cafe

Mar 23rd, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Well, it is shaping up to be restaurant week at because for the third day in a row now here I am with yet another eatery to blog about – this time Downtown Los Angeles’ historic Original Pantry Café which first opened almost nine decades ago in 1924.  While I had actually known about the landmark restaurant for many years due to the fact that it has long been one of the Grim Cheaper’s boss’ favorite breakfast joints, it wasn’t until fellow stalker Lavonna […]

Los Angeles County Museum of Art from “My So-Called Life”

Feb 17th, 2011 | By | Category: My So-Called Life Filming Locations

Since I spend the majority of my weekends dragging the Grim Cheaper out on various stalking adventures, this past Saturday, in honor of our first Valentine’s Day together as a married couple, I decided to create a scavenger hunt for him based on his many likes and hobbies.  I do have to admit that while most of our destinations were places that I had little to no interest in visiting, the hunt was not entirely an un-selfish endeavor on my part.  A few of our […]

The First Congregational Church of Los Angeles from “My So-Called Life”

Dec 23rd, 2010 | By | Category: My So-Called Life Filming Locations

Fellow stalker/My So-Called Life aficionado Andrew recently went on a mission to try to track down the church that was used in the Season 1 Christmas-themed episode of fave show My So-Called Life titled “So-Called Angels”.  He had just picked up the most-recently released boxed set of the series, which came out in 2007, and was floored to discover that actor Wilson Cruz, who played Ricky Vasquez on the show, had recorded a commentary for the “So-Called Angels” episode and had described the location of […]

The Bradbury Building

Apr 1st, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

While serving on jury duty a few years back, I had the opportunity to visit one of the most incredible buildings I’ve ever seen in my life.  Since jurors are oftentimes given incredibly long lunches (sometimes lasting over two and a half hours!!), the jury orientation paperwork includes a list of some “Things To Do” in the area.  On that list was the Bradbury Building, which is located just a few short blocks away from the L.A. courthouse.  Thanks to its prominent appearance in the 1982 science fiction flick Blade Runner, […]

Olvera Street

Mar 25th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

This weekend I dragged my boyfriend and my parents out to stalk a street that is known as the “birthplace of Los Angeles”.  The historic Olvera Street outdoor marketplace has long been a popular tourist attraction and filming location.  But its history began over 200 years ago when the area was built by early Spanish settlers.  At that time it was the center of Hispanic life in Southern California and consisted of a church, a town plaza, and several adobe homes all surrounding a tiny lane known as Wine Street.  […]

Isn’t It Romantic!

Feb 26th, 2009 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

A few weeks ago while watching my all time favorite episode of Beverly Hills, 90210, entitled “Isn’t It Romantic”, I noticed something I had never noticed before in all of my previous times watching it.   In the episode, Dylan takes Brenda on a date to a scenic lookout point to discuss their burgeoning relationship.  While watching that scene I noticed that Dylan and Brenda walk right by a sign reading “Mulholland Scenic Corridor” (pictured above).  And I almost jumped right out of my chair as I knew exactly where […]
