If you think back to your favorite films, you might notice that many of them used the same locations. Here are some places and the movies made there:
If you live in Los Angeles, you may have seen the Quality Cafe once or twice, and if you own a television, you’ve probably seen it hundreds of times. The Quality Cafe doesn’t even function as a real diner anymore. It stopped serving meals in 2006, but it’s been doing pretty well for itself as a film location over the past few decades.
If this particular formation of rocks looks familiar to you, congratulations on being a nerd. These are the Vasquez Rocks located in Agua Dulce, California, and they are most famous for being used as the backdrop of several Star Trek scenes.
Hatfield House in England was built in 1611 and has a long and proud association with the country’s royal family. The only reason we’re talking about it here is that it’s also Batman’s house. And Tarzan’s. And Lara Croft’s. Basically, any action hero whose superpowers include “having insanely rich parents” lives there.
The Bradbury Building
The Bradbury Building, a Los Angeles landmark built in 1893, has been called the most famous building in science fiction. Its distinctive interiors have appeared in several sci-fi movies and TV shows over the past 70 years.
Greystone Mansion is a property in Beverly Hills that has been featured in over 100 movies and episodes of TV shows. We’re guessing that the main reason for this is that it’s like a 15-minute drive between Hollywood and Beverly Hills, but it probably doesn’t hurt that this place is also classy.
Monument Valley, with its vibrant colors and sandstone pinnacles, contains some of the most recognizable rock formations in the world. The reason you may recognize these rocks is that they’ve been used a ton throughout the valley’s illustrious Hollywood career.
