Society (1989)


A friend sent a location request for a house in Society, a film I wasn't too familiar with at the time.  Although I still haven't found that particular location, I visited a couple other spots during my last trip.  Before we get to the main house, let's hit the beach.  First up is the pier at Paradise Cove...

I didn't quite get the right spot for the next part of the scene, but will change that on a future visit....

The main location in the film is Wrigley Mansion Tournament House in Pasadena...

Some more areas of the house....

You Again (2010)


I'm a big Halloween fan, so I usually check out Jamie Lee Curtis' movies.  Add Sigourney Weaver and you can consider my movie ticket bought!  The actual movie is so-so, but it does have some funny moments.  Although not high on my list of have-to-visit locations, I stopped by a few during my last few visits.

First up is the school seen during Kristen Bell's flashback...

Next up is a house that Jamie Lee must really love as she lived there in Freaky Friday as well....

Back to the school for another scene...

I've visited the location for Betty White's house a couple of times before as it was also featured in one of my favorites, Christine...






Screenshots....



The main thoroughfare in Monrovia gets a lot of film work and you can check out more of it in The Goldbergs, Deadly Friend, and Stepfather III.  Here is a spot on South Myrtle Avenue as it appears in the film...





Screenshots....




The Langham Huntington Hotel is used in many films, most recently Saving Mr. Banks and not-so-recently, Stepfather II...

No stranger to Pasadena, Jamie Lee attempts to race Sigourney Weaver at this intersection next to city hall...


Screenshots....





The traffic light is a few blocks down.  I couldn't get the angle exactly right, but you get the idea...

Screenshots....


When she is pulled over, she is actually behind where she started on a parallel street.



Screenshots....



Back to the Langham Huntington Hotel for this courtyard scene...



Screenshots....



From what I can tell, they also may have shot the pool scene at the hotel as well...

And a cameo at the end by the glorious Cloris Leachman!
