The British Consulate from “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”

Jul 15th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Much of my free time as of late has been spent tracking down missing locations from Jumpin’ Jack Flash.  Ever since writing my post on the apartment where Terry Dolittle (Whoopi Goldberg) lived in the 1986 comedy, I have been just a wee bit consumed with finding other spots featured in the flick.  So much so that I even purchased director Penny Marshall’s 2012 autobiography in the hopes that it might shed some light on the subject.  One locale that I did not need to […]



Terry’s Apartment from “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”

Jul 6th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I’ve made no secret over the years of my love for Jumpin’ Jack Flash.  (You can read the posts I’ve done on the 1986 comedy’s locations here, here, here, and here.)  Whoopi Goldberg is literally perfection in her role as zany New York bank employee Terry Dolittle and I pretty much go around quoting her and the other characters on a regular basis (“Get Larry, the heavy-set guard!  Get Larry, the heavy-set guard!”).  So when a fellow stalker named Mick emailed me in July 2013 […]



Liz’s House from “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”

Apr 29th, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

There are two kinds of people in this world – those who can watch movies over and over and over again and those who cannot.  I am in the former category.  During my teens and twenties, my parents owned a condominium in Hawaii.  We would vacation there every summer, along with other families who owned units in the same community.  Our condo was the kids’ hang-out spot (we had a VCR and large movie library) and, for reasons that no longer remain known to me, […]



The Andrew McNally House from “Kingdom Come”

Feb 4th, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Los Angeles never ceases to surprise me.  Though I feel like I know the city and its environs like the back of my hand and have spent the last decade of my life researching its locations, I am constantly learning of new spots that I had no idea even existed.  Such was the case with an architecturally unique property located pretty much right in my own former backyard.  A fellow filming location enthusiast name Liesel recently asked me why I had yet to blog about […]



The Reno Main US Post Office from “Sister Act”

Jan 5th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

While visiting my grandmother in Sparks, Nevada over Christmas, I dragged her, along with my parents, out to stalk the Reno Main US Post Office, which masqueraded as the Reno Police Station in the 1992 movie Sister Act.  I first found out about this location from fave book Shot on This Site: A Traveler’s Guide to the Places and Locations Used to Film Famous Movies and TV Shows (which was gifted to me by fellow stalker Lavonna ) while doing research on the area in […]



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.  […]



The “13 Going On 30” Thriller Dance Location

Mar 4th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A few months ago, I enlisted the help of fellow stalker Owen in tracking down the location from fave movie 13 Going On 30 where Jenna Rink (aka Jennifer Garner) saved the Poise Magazine  party by performing her rendition of the Zombie Dance from Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”, which, not surprisingly,  just so happens to be my very favorite scene in the flick.  From the beginning, I was absolutely convinced that the “Thriller” scene had been filmed in a building located somewhere in New York, but […]



George’s 50’s Diner from “A Cinderella Story”

Jan 15th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another location at the very top of my Long Beach “To Stalk” list was the restaurant where Hilary Duff worked in fave teeny-bopper movie A Cinderella Story.  In real life, that restaurant is known as George’s 50’s Diner and it is one of the last remaining diners of its kind in all of California.  George’s Diner, which was originally named Grissinger’s Drive-In, first opened up in 1952.  It was designed by architect Wayne McAllister, who also designed the famous Sands Casino in Las  Vegas.   In […]
