The Safari Inn from “True Romance”

Mar 15th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One oft-filmed-at locale that I had known about for ages, but had never gotten around to stalking was the historic Safari Inn on West Olive Avenue in Burbank. I had driven by the motel countless times over the years – I get my hair done right across the street, in fact – and, even though I knew of the site’s prestigious filming pedigree, for some odd reason, I never thought to stalk it. Then, a couple of weeks ago, my hair stylist happened […]



Alfred Hitchcock’s House from “Hitchcock”

Feb 8th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Hold on to your hats, my fellow stalkers, ‘cause today’s post is going to be a long one!  A couple of months ago, Mike, from MovieShotsLA, called me up to let me know that he had just watched a screener of the 2012 biopic Hitchcock (he works at a high-profile production company) and, knowing my penchant for the Master of Suspense, suggested I run right out and see it for myself as soon as possible.  Thankfully, because Helen Mirren, who played Alma Reville, Hitch’s wife, […]



St. Vincent de Paul Church from “The Closer”

Aug 24th, 2012 | By | Category: TV Locations

A couple of weeks ago, while watching the Season 7 episode of The Closer titled “Last Rites”, I received a text from my mom, who was also watching the show at the time.  She was curious to know if I was aware of what church the episode had been filmed at.  And, as fate would have it, I did!  The “Last Rites” church was none other than St. Vincent de Paul Church in the West Adams District of Los Angeles.  And while the locale has […]



The Los Angeles Police Administration Building from “The Closer”

Aug 21st, 2012 | By | Category: TV Locations

One location that I had long been desperate to stalk was the real life Los Angeles Police Administration Building – or the Los Angeles Police Department Headquarters, as it is also known – in downtown Los Angeles, which played itself each week on fave show The Closer.  So in honor of the series’ recently-aired final episode, the Grim Cheaper and I ventured down there this past Saturday morning.  And I just have to say here that I, sadly, was not very impressed with The Closer’s […]



L’Orangerie – aka Chez Quis Restaurant from "Ferris Bueller’s Day Off"

Jan 12th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Back in 2010, this stalker became just a wee-bit obsessed with tracking down the restaurant interior which was used as the fictional Chez Quis French eatery in the iconic 1986 movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.  I knew from listening to director John Hughes’ DVD commentary that the restaurant was somewhere in the Los Angeles area, but try as I might, I just could not seem to locate it.  Because I feared that the place had most likely long since closed down and, as such, any […]



The Barclay Hotel from “As Good As It Gets”

Mar 17th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

This past weekend, the Grim Cheaper and I re-watched the movie As Good As It Gets, which I had not seen since it first came out in theatres almost 15 years ago, and I am ashamed to admit that I had somehow completely forgotten what a great flick it was!  While watching, I, of course, became a bit obsessed with tracking down some of the Southern California locations featured in it and just about had a heart attack when I read on IMDB’s As Good […]



Brenda Leigh Johnson’s House from “The Closer”

Dec 3rd, 2010 | By | Category: TV Locations

I thought I’d take a little break from writing about my nuptials today as I figure there are more than a few stalkers out there who are not at all interested in reading about wedding planning, even when there is a filming location element tied in to it.  Anyway, a few days ago I was going through some old photographs on my computer when I came across a location that I stalked way back in November of 2008, but for whatever reason had completely forgotten to blog about – the adorable Craftsman-style house where Deputy Chief Brenda […]



Eagle Rock Plaza from “Glee” and Michael Buble’s “Crazy Love” Photoshoot

Oct 13th, 2010 | By | Category: Glee Filming Locations

This past Monday morning, Mike, from MovieShotsLA, called me up to ask if I wanted to do some stalking with him in the San Gabriel Valley.  As it turns out, Monday was a holiday – although I hadn’t realized it beforehand – and Mike had the day off from work.  So, after first loading up on some Starbucks coffee (but of course) the two of us headed right on over to Eagle Rock, where the first item on our stalking agenda – Eagle Rock Plaza […]



The Closer Duplex

Apr 20th, 2009 | By | Category: TV Locations

As I have mentioned before, I am a huge fan of TNT’s crime series The Closer.  As is my whole family, actually.  So, a few weeks ago when my mom challenged me to locate Brenda and Fritz’s duplex apartment building from the series, I accepted the challenge!    And it didn’t take me long to find it at all.  

Actually, I can’t really take credit for this one.  I happened to show my boyfriend a screen capture I had made of Brenda’s building to see if he might have an idea of […]



Just Another Day In L.A.!

Oct 16th, 2008 | By | Category: TV Locations

On Monday, I decided to do a little stalking of the horror movie Scream 2, a movie which I am sad to say was nowhere near as good as its predecessor. But since I had found the address of the fraternity house used in the movie and since the location fit in with my Halloween theme, I had to run right out to stalk it. The fraternity house was featured in the beginning of Scream 2 as the location of the party Sidney and her […]
