Thornton Gardens from “Funny Girl”

Dec 8th, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I have never been a big Barbra Streisand fan.  Sure, she’s an undeniably talented singer – and actress and director, for that matter – but I’m just not that into music.  And that whole Rosie-O’Donnell-having-to-rearrange-her-stage-to-showcase-Barbra’s-better-side thing really turned me off.  I won’t even get in to her absolutely cringe-worthy Inside the Actors Studio interview.  Nevertheless, when I came upon this 2016 Outlook Newspapers article which mentioned that the movie Funny Girl had done some filming at a house located at 1155 Oak Grove Avenue in […]

Officer Rhodes’ House from “Bridesmaids”

Dec 4th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

As I mentioned in last Thursday’s post about the apartment building where Lillian (Maya Rudolph) lived in Bridesmaids, I recently became just a wee-bit obsessed with tracking down all of the locales featured in the 2011 hit.  One of the sites I was most interested in finding, of course, was the small blue ranch-style house belonging to Officer Rhodes (Chris O’Dowd).  I bugged Mike, from MovieShotsLA, relentlessly to help me out with the search and he finally managed to track the place down last Wednesday […]

Lillian and Sam’s House from “People Like Us”

Dec 3rd, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

After I tracked down Frankie (Elizabeth Banks) and Josh’s (Michael Hall D’Addario’s) house from 2012’s People Like Us (which I blogged about on Friday), the next item on my To-Search-For list was the gorgeous Craftsman-style abode where Lillian Harper (Michelle Pfeiffer) and her son, Sam Harper (Chris Pine), lived in the flick.  Thankfully, this locale proved to be an easy find, despite the fact that very little of the exterior was ever shown.

Towards the end of People Like Us, there is a scene in which […]

Frankie’s House from “People Like Us”

Nov 30th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

As I mentioned in early November in my post about Henry’s Tacos, I did not especially love the 2012 movie People Like Us as I found it to be a bit too depressing.  What I did love, though, was the fact that the flick was filmed in its entirety in L.A.  So after watching, I, of course, set about tracking down as many of its locales as I could – all by myself!  Lately I feel like I do not get to spend much time […]

Jimmie’s House from “Pulp Fiction” – the Correct One!

Nov 6th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Last week, a location photographer named Cris emailed me to ask for some stalking help.  Turns out he had just scouted a house located at 4507 Kraft Avenue in Studio City and the owner (who bought the abode in 2009) had informed him that the residence had been used as Jimmie Dimmick’s (Quentin Tarantino’s) house in Pulp Fiction.  Cris was a bit confused, though, as the place looked nothing at all like what he remembered of Jimmie’s pad in the 1994 thriller.  So he did […]

The Meiks’s House from “Frailty”

Oct 16th, 2012 | By | Category: Haunted Hollywood, Movie Locations

One of my absolute, hands-down, favorite movies of all time is the 2001 thriller Frailty, which just so happens to be actor Bill Paxton’s directorial debut.  And I am apparently in good company with that opinion – according to the Contact Music website, James Cameron, Sam Raimi and Stephen King are also huge fans of the flick, calling it “electrifying”, “the most frightening horror picture I’ve seen since The Shining”, and “edge-of-the-seat entertainment”, respectively.  If you have not yet seen Frailty, I cannot more highly […]

Leigh Ann’s House from “Teaching Mrs. Tingle”

Oct 3rd, 2012 | By | Category: Haunted Hollywood, Movie Locations

The final Teaching Mrs. Tingle location that I was absolutely desperate to find was the home where Leigh Ann Watson (Katie Holmes) lived in the 1999 thriller.  Because the other two properties featured in the movie are located in Pasadena (you can read my post on the house belonging to Mrs. Tingle (Helen Mirren) here and Coach Wenchell (Jeffrey Tambor) here), I was positively convinced that Leigh Ann’s residence was, as well, and spent countless hours scouring aerial views of the city.  After repeatedly coming […]

Grand Central Air Terminal from “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure”

Sep 27th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

While doing research for yesterday’s post (which you can read here), I came across a page on IMDB that stated that the bus station scene from Pee-wee’s Big Adventure was filmed at the Glendale Amtrak Station.  I knew from previous cyber-stalking, though, that the Pee-wee bus station scene was actually filmed a few miles north of the Amtrak depot at the now-defunct Grand Central Air Terminal (a location that I first learned about way back in March 2011 while writing my post on the nearby […]

Mike’s House from “Say Anything . . . “

Aug 20th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

As I mentioned in last Thursday’s post about North Hollywood Park – aka the location of the iconic Boombox scene from Say Anything . . .  – Mike, from MovieShotsLA, and I recently went on a mission to track down some missing locales from the classic 1989 flick.  And I am very happy to report that our hunt was successful!  One location that Mike found was the house where Mike Cameron (Jason Gould) lived in the movie.  So he took me right on over there […]

The 7-Eleven from “Say Anything . . . “

Aug 17th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Located directly across the street from North Hollywood Park – aka the spot where the iconic Boombox scene from Say Anything . . . was filmed, which I blogged about yesterday – is the 7-Eleven that appeared in the 1989 flick.  Mike, from MovieShotsLA, and I found out about this locale once again thanks to Mike’s fiancé, Ame, who grew up in the North Hollywood area and had heard about the filming when it took place 24 years ago (yikes, has it really been that […]
