Golden Gate Fields from “Metro” – And a Special Fundraising Event for the Alzheimer’s Association

May 1st, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

My BFF since the age of 9, Natalie, will be hosting a charity event in honor of her grandfather, Ed Lingsch, on June 14th in the San Francisco area.  Ed passed away just shy of his 98th birthday on November 12th, 2011 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s Disease.  Nat worked for Ed’s real estate company, eventually taking over the business, and cared for her beloved “Gramps” for the last decade of his life.  During that time, she penned a blog called Laugh or Cry […]



The Moonlight Mile Bar from “Beautiful Girls”

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

While going through my trusty stalking notebook this morning, I realized that I still have quite the backlog of Minnesota filming locations that I have yet to blog about.  Not to mention the slew of Seattle locales that I haven’t even yet begun to post!  I’m going to mix them all in with L.A. area locations over the next few weeks so that my fellow stalkers don’t get bored reading about the same city over and over again.  But for today I thought I’d write […]



Jan’s Duplex from “Beautiful Girls”

May 26th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One of the locations that I was most excited about stalking while in Minnesota three weeks ago (and I can hardly even believe that it’s already been three weeks!) was the duplex where Jan (aka Martha Plimpton) lived in fave movie Beautiful Girls.  The residence is actually located in Hopkins, a city about thirteen miles west of Minneapolis and a bit out of the way from the other Beautiful Girls locations.  I found this spot, once again, thanks to Owen and his Beautiful Girls master […]



Bryant-Lake Bowl from “Beautiful Girls”

May 20th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

To appease my good friend and fellow stalker Mike, from MovieShotsLA, who has been on my case ALL WEEK about my constant Minnesota blogging, beginning tomorrow I will be returning to my old stomping grounds, so to speak, by writing about locales in the Los Angeles area.  Unfortunately for Mike, though, there are still quite a few North Star State locations in my backlog that I’ve yet to post about.  So, I guess I’ll just have to intermix them with my L.A. locales from this […]



The Johnson Inn Restaurant from “Beautiful Girls”

May 18th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

The other Beautiful Girls location that I was most excited about stalking (second only to the main houses used in the movie, of course), while in Minnesota two weeks ago, was the Johnson Inn – the local “Knight’s Ridge, Massachusetts” watering hole where Willie Conway (aka Timothy Hutton), Tommy “Birdman” Rowland (aka Matt Dillon), Paul Kirkwood (aka Michael Rapaport) and the rest of the gang hung out in the flick.  Interestingly enough, two locations actually stood in for the Johnson Inn in Beautiful Girls – […]



The River Oasis Cafe from “Beautiful Girls”

May 14th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another Stillwater, Minnesota location that my family and I stalked last week was the River Oasis Cafe from fave movie Beautiful Girls.  And I’m really hoping that my fellow stalkers are not yet sick of reading about Beautiful Girls locations, ‘cause there are still quite a few of them that I’ve yet to blog about.  😉  Anyway, I found out about this locale thanks to the master locations list that fellow stalker Owen purveyed for me before I left on my trip to the North […]
