from wayne’s world posted in movies by chewing_the_scenery

Wayne's World is set in the Chicago suburb of Aurora, but Wayne's house from the 1992 movie is here in Van Nuys. Garth's house, apparently renovated since filming, is right across the street.

mellow tiger bar (exterior)

from castle rock posted in television by chewing_the_scenery

This small building in Orange, MA, formerly a clothing store, became the exterior of the Mellow Tiger Bar for Hulu's Stephen King-inspired show set in the fictional town of Castle Rock. The bar's name is an easter egg reference to a bar in King's 1991 novel Needful Things.

Don't expect candlepin bowling inside. The interior bar with its two bowling lanes was likely filmed on a soundstage.

landmark mall

from wonder woman 1984 posted in movies by chewing_the_scenery

Some (or maybe all... who knows) of Wonder Woman’s upcoming sequel Wonder Woman 1984 was filmed at Alexandria, Virginia’s Landmark Mall. Perhaps I’ll update this with more info when the movie (or a trailer) comes out, but then again probably not.

The Landmark Mall has been closed for renovations since 2017.

wind gap, missouri

from sharp objects posted in television by chewing_the_scenery

Barnesville, Georgia (gotta love those tax breaks) was dressed up as the fictional Missouri bootheel town of Wind Gap for HBO’s Sharp Objects based on Gillian Flynn’s debut novel.

The "Welcome to Wind Gap" mural on the corner of Market and Mill St. was reportedly loved enough by the town that they decided to keep it, but I can’t tell you for how long.

millard house

from frank lloyd wright, westworld posted in art and design by chewing_the_scenery

Frank Lloyd Wright designed and built the Millard house in 1923.

He built four Mayan Revival-style houses like this in the Los Angeles area in the early 1920s. The Ennis House, which has appeared in dozens of movies and tv shows, is probably the most familiar of this textile-block design.

You can see the Millard House in HBO’s Westworld as the house Arnold is constructing for his family, and it’s also where Ford builds (and Delores tests) Bernard.
