Shakers Family Restaurant from “Old School”

Mar 28th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Today’s locale is another one of those facepalm spots.  For ages, I had been trying to track down the interior of the diner where Mitch (Owen Wilson) and the boys discussed saving their fraternity in the 2003 comedy Old School.  While I had long known that Montrose Bakery & Café (which, sadly, Yelp is reporting has closed) was used as the exterior of the restaurant, the café that portrayed the interior remained a mystery.  Then while watching the flick recently, I spotted something that I […]

Burning Man’s House from “Major Crimes”

Jan 27th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

My friend Owen and I share an uncanny synchronicity.  The other night I received an email from him which said the following, “837 Beacon Ave., L.A.  You may want to stalk this place after you watch the Season 7 premiere of Parks and Recreation.”  I had yet to see the episode, but immediately looked up the address via Google Street View and just about fell off my chair.  The very same house had also appeared in that week’s Major Crimes and I had made a […]

Phil’s Diner from “The X-Files”

Jun 4th, 2014 | By | Category: TV Locations

When I was in L.A. last week, Mike, from MovieShotsLA, and I spent two full days stalking.  Our adventures took us from one end of Los Angeles to the other.  At one point, while in North Hollywood, we passed by Phil’s Diner at 5230 Lankershim Boulevard and stopped to snap some pics.  I figured the historic-looking restaurant had to have appeared onscreen at some time, so I did a quick Google search on my iPhone and just about fell over when I learned that the […]

The Newhall Mansion from “Charmed”

May 2nd, 2011 | By | Category: Charmed Filming Locations, TV Locations

Another location that the Grim Cheaper and I visited two Saturdays ago while doing some stalking in the Heritage Valley area was the Newhall Mansion, formerly the Piru Mansion, which fellow stalker Chas, from the ItsFilmedThere website, had told me about a few weeks prior.  The Newhall Mansion has appeared in countless productions over the years, most notably the Season 2 episode of Charmed titled “How To Make a Quilt Out of Americans” and Chas figured that because my girl Shannen Doherty had once been […]

Casey’s Irish Pub

Jun 22nd, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One location that I have been wanting to stalk for what seems like ages now is Casey’s Irish Pub (aka Casey’s Bar & Grill), a historic Downtown Los Angeles watering hole that has appeared in COUNTLESS movie and television productions throughout its more than thirty year history.  I first found out about the bar over six months ago while doing some online research on locales featured in the first X-Files movie and the place has been high up on my “To Stalk” list ever since.  […]
