The Stuart Building from “That Thing You Do!”

Nov 19th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Back in early October, upon returning home from doing some That Thing You Do! stalking in Orange (you can read my posts on the locations I stalked here, here and here), I popped in my DVD of the 1996 flick to re-watch it for the first time in years.  I was absolutely shocked – and floored – to discover in the course of the viewing that The Stuart at Sierra Madre Villa, an architecturally-stunning Pasadena apartment complex that I toured while house-hunting in 2006, had […]



Watson Drugs and Soda Fountain from “That Thing You Do!”

Nov 7th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another That Thing You Do! locale that I dragged the Grim Cheaper out to stalk while the two of us were in the city of Orange in early October was Watson Drugs and Soda Fountain, which popped up twice in the 1996 flick.  And while I really wanted to grab a bite there, sadly the GC and I had just eaten prior to arriving in Orange.  It was still extremely cool to see the place, which is Orange County’s oldest drugstore and the city of […]



Patterson’s Appliances from “That Thing You Do!”

Nov 6th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

After stalking the downtown Orange spot where the That Thing You Do! mailbox scene was filmed (which I blogged about yesterday), I dragged the Grim Cheaper just a few feet south to stalk the storefront that was used as Patterson’s Appliances, drummer Guy Patterson’s (Tom Everett Scott) family’s shop, in the 1996 flick.  Thank goodness for the Seeing Stars website and its That Thing You Do! filming locations page, which had the address of Patterson’s Appliances listed, because, as I mentioned yesterday, my trip to […]



The “That Thing You Do!” Mailbox Scene

Nov 5th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Well folks, this post sadly marks the end to my 2013 Haunted Hollywood locales, which is especially depressing because this year was easily the Best. Halloween. Ever.  Once again, the GC and I (dressed up as The Bachelorette’s Emily Maynard and Jef Holm) headed out to our friends’ house in Malibu.  (And yes, I am aware that Emily and Jef are no longer together, but neither are Brenda and Dylan and we dressed up like them, too, one Halloween. 😉 )   Dick Van Dyke ended up […]



The Dresden Restaurant

Oct 7th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A couple of months ago I was flipping through one of my favorite stalking tomes, Hollywood Escapes: The Moviegoer’s Guide to Exploring Southern California’s Great Outdoors, when I came across a blurb written about the legendary Dresden Restaurant in Hollywood.  And while I had actually eaten at the Dresden once before upon first moving to Southern California almost a decade ago, at the time I had no idea it was a filming location!  So, I immediately called up the Grim Cheaper and begged him to […]



If You Two Ever Have Kids and One of Them Accidentally Sets Fire to the Living Room Rug . . .

Aug 8th, 2008 | By | Category: Movie Locations

My family and I were supposed to take the red eye home from Hawaii on Wednesday night, but en route to the airport we decided to turn in our tickets and stay a few more days. LOL It was a totally spur of the moment thing and SO MUCH FUN! I can’t even believe we’re still here. Anyway – I didn’t do any Kona stalking today, so thank goodness I have some locations in my stalking reserves that I can blog about.
Two weeks […]



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 […]
