LA’s Most Famous Film Locations


Frank’s Coffee Shop and Restaurant

Featured in Larry Crowne with Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts, Frank’s Coffee Shop and Restaurant still flaunt its nostalgic 50s style. From the charming waitresses who have worked there for decades to the highly affordable and delicious early bird breakfast deals, this quaint café has a humble presence with star-like aspirations.

Original LA Flower Market and Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Valentine’s Day

The film Valentine’s Day starring Ashton Kutcher, Jessica Alba, George Lopez, and Jennifer Garner was shot entirely at locations throughout LA. Early in the film, it is revealed that Kutcher’s character lives at the Venice Canals and visits the Original LA Flower Market to purchase supplies for his flower shop. Boasting a stock of over 125 varieties of flowers, the flower market is open to the public at a minimal admission fee.

And while the romantic Venice Canals are predominantly a residential area, visitors can stop by as they walk around the Venice Beach Boardwalk or Abbott Kinney artistic boulevard. Later in the movie, Hector Elizondo’s and Topher Grace’s characters go to a movie screening at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery where several stars are buried. These screenings are hosted by Cinespia and generally occur during the warmer months.
