South Pasadena Public Library from “Say Anything . . . “

Feb 12th, 2018 | By | Category: Movie Locations

 
I was incredibly saddened to learn of the passing of John Mahoney last week.  Not only did I love the actor in pretty much every role he played, but his Hollywood story is such an unusual and admirable one.  After graduating from college, Mahoney tried his hand at a few different occupations including teaching English at a university and editing a medical journal.  Then at the not-so-tender age of 37, he switched gears and decided to follow his passion – acting.  He found quick success […]



Kaldi Coffee and Tea from “Lady Bird”

Feb 5th, 2018 | By | Category: Movie Locations

The Grim Cheaper and I are almost all settled in to our new desert home, so I should be getting back to my regularly scheduled blog programing in the near future.  Thanks for bearing with me over the past few weeks.  For my first post-move locale, I thought I’d write about a spot I originally covered back in early 2010 – Kaldi Coffee and Tea in South Pasadena, which I was thrilled to see pop up numerous times while watching a for-your-consideration DVD of Lady […]



Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel from “The Ugly Truth”

Mar 23rd, 2016 | By | Category: TV Locations

It has been said that Los Angeles has no regard for its history.  Today’s post is a testament to that assertion.  On March 1st of this year, the doors of the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel were closed in order for a massive remodel and renovation process to take place.  Though the building is set to re-open in 2018 as a condo/hotel hybrid, it will sadly have a completely different look and feel than its predecessor.  The property had long been on my To-Stalk List […]



Cup ‘N Cakes Cafe from “Modern Family”

Feb 25th, 2010 | By | Category: TV Locations

A few weeks back, a fellow stalker who identified himself as “Stepick” left a comment on my Step by Step house post informing me that a coffee shop in nearby South Pasadena had been featured in the recent episode of fave show Modern Family entitled “Moon Landing”.  Unfortunately though, Stepick did not specify exactly which South Pasadena coffee house it was.  So, I decided to do a little bit of digging to see if I could figure it out.  I came up empty-handed at first, […]



Katherine Heigl’s Apartment Building from “The Ugly Truth”

Jan 11th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A few months back I received an email from a woman named Marilyn (love it!) who wanted to know if I could track down the apartment building where Katherine Heigl lived in the 2009 romantic comedy The Ugly Truth.  But because I am not a big Katherine Heigl fan – I just think the girl has entirely too much to say about . . . well, everything – I had yet to see the movie and didn’t really plan on doing so.  So, I enlisted […]
