The “Pretty Little Liars” Church

Jan 18th, 2016 | By | Category: Pretty Little Liars Locations

Before we get started, I have a couple of announcements.  Some changes will be coming to the blog in 2016.  The biggest change will be a major site redesign, which the Grim Cheaper is currently working on and which I could NOT be more excited about.  You’ll notice I’ve altered my screen captures a bit in today’s post, which is part of the revamp.  My editor at Los Angeles magazine also recently started a new position and until someone is hired to replace her full […]

Spencer’s House and Barn from “Pretty Little Liars”

Jan 14th, 2016 | By | Category: Pretty Little Liars Locations

Though all of the homes featured on Pretty Little Liars are pretty darn amazing design-wise, my personal favorite, hands-down, is the farm-like residence where Spencer Hastings (Troian Bellisario) and her family live.  So when I began tracking down the locales used in the pilot, which was shot in Vancouver, Spencer’s pad was at the top of my list of places to find.  And find it, I did.  While not much of the dwelling is visible from the street, sadly, I still had my good friend/fellow […]

Lord Byng Secondary School from “Pretty Little Liars”

Jan 11th, 2016 | By | Category: Pretty Little Liars Locations

I hope y’all aren’t sick of Pretty Little Liars locations yet, because I still have a few more up my sleeve, as well as a huge soon-to-be published article on the subject for Discover Los Angeles.  Today’s locale is Vancouver’s Lord Byng Secondary School, which stood in for Rosewood High School in the pilot episode.  For those who have not read my other PLL articles (which you can do here, here, here, and here) and are unfamiliar with the production of the show, I’ll give […]

Aria’s House from “Pretty Little Liars”

Jan 8th, 2016 | By | Category: Pretty Little Liars Locations

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – stalking begets stalking!  One of the Vancouver locations I was most interested in finding from the Pretty Little Liars pilot was the gorgeous Craftsman-style house where doe-eyed beauty Aria Montgomery (Lucy Hale) lived.  There was virtually nothing to go on, though – no address number, no street signs, no clues visible in the background.  So I put that hunt on the back burner and instead set my sights on tracking down the DiLaurentis/St. Germain home […]

Ali’s House from “Pretty Little Liars”

Jan 6th, 2016 | By | Category: Pretty Little Liars Locations

Pretty Little Liars will be returning to the small screen on January 12th and I could NOT be more excited!  Though I found the recent mid-season finale to be absolutely ridiculous, not to mention a total let-down (this was SO me and my mom while viewing it), to the point that I thought I might never watch again, I now find myself thrilled that new episodes are only a few days away!  As detailed in my February 2015 post titled “The Pretty Little Liars Guide […]

Eric Hamber Secondary School from “Juno”

Jun 28th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

The third and final Juno filming location that I stalked while in Vancouver last month was the supposed Minneapolis-area Dancing Elk High School – the learning institution attended by Juno MacGuff (aka Ellen Page), her dorky baby-daddy Paulie Bleeker (aka Michael Cera), and her absolutely hilarious best friend, Leah (aka Olivia Thirlby).  In real life, Dancing Elk High School is known as Eric Hamber Secondary School and it is located a good 1,400 miles away from Minneapolis in the Shaughnessy neighborhood of Vancouver, British Columbia, […]

Juno’s House from “Juno”

Jun 24th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

While I realize that most of my fellow stalkers are currently clamoring for me to put my Pacific Northwest blogging on hold in order to write about locales in the Southern California area, there are two more locations from the Academy Award-winning movie Juno that I wanted to blog about before doing so.  So, please bear with me for now, as I promise to get back to my L.A. roots first thing next week.    In the meantime, the second Juno location that I stalked […]

Bleeker’s House from “Juno”

Jun 23rd, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another Vancouver location that fellow stalker Owen managed to track down was the supposed Minnesota-area house belonging to dorky high school track-star Paulie Bleeker (aka Michael Cera) in the 2007 breakout dramedy Juno.  And even though I was not a big fan of the flick – it was funny and all, but not especially spectacular and, in my never-to-be-humble opinion, dealt with the issue of teenage pregnancy far too cavalierly for my taste – because it was such a huge hit and because I was […]

Brockton Point Lighthouse from “The Crush”

Jun 21st, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

The third and final filming location that I stalked from the 1993 thriller The Crush while I was visiting Vancouver two weeks ago was the Brockton Point Lighthouse – the spot where 14-year old Adrian Forrester (aka Alicia Silverstone) tried to seduce Nick Eliot (aka Cary Elwes), the much older man who was leasing her parents’ guest house in the flick.  I found this location, once again, thanks to fellow stalker Owen, who in turn tracked it down via one of the movie’s crew members.  […]

Nick’s (Almost) Apartment from “The Crush”

Jun 18th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Just a mile and a half away from the Forrester mansion, which appeared in the 1993 thriller The Crush and which I blogged about yesterday, is the supposed Seattle-area apartment house where Nick Eliot (aka Cary Elwes) tried to rent a unit after discovering that his current landlords’ 14-year old daughter Adrian (aka Alicia Silverstone) had developed a highly-inappropriate and psychotically-obsessive crush on him.  I found this location, yet again, thanks to master stalker Owen, who had managed to track down one of the movie’s […]
