Iconic Movie and TV Houses of L.A.
Thursday, August 21, 2014 | 6 months ago
Whether it’s a central location in a feature film or just an establishing shot on a sitcom, Los Angeles has some of the most iconic movie and TV houses in the world.
Houses such as Nancy’s from A Nightmare on Elm Street in Hollywood or the Cunningham’s house from Happy Days in Hancock Park are instantly recognizable. While directors, location managers and production designers are looking for homes that will best serve the story, inevitably many of these dwellings become celebrated. Perhaps a time machine made out of a DeLorean raced into the driveway. Maybe an extraterrestrial who phoned home was hidden there.
From the Valley to Venice, from Beverly Hills to Baldwin Hills, the sprawling landscape and vastly different neighborhoods of L.A. make up a “backlot” like no other.
Special thanks to the Location Managers Guild of America for its assistance.
