Clueless (1995)

Amy Heckerling is no stranger to high school life thanks to her 80s classic Fast Times At Ridgemont High (1982).  In the 90s, she brought us Clueless, a loosely based modern adaptation of Emma.  Aerosmith's go-to video girl, Alicia Silverstone, lands her breakout role as good-natured yet superficial Cher.  A great supporting cast, a catchy soundtrack and quotes that could almost give Heathers (1989) a run for its money, Clueless is an engaging teen movie that I will "totally pause" for anytime.  

Clueless was filmed in Eagle Rock, Encino, Beverly Hills, North Hollywood, Sherman Oaks and Long Beach, CA

Location: Dionne's House
Address: 705 N Sierra Avenue, Beverly Hills, CA

Location: The Stop Sign
Address: Elevado Avenue & N Hillcrest Road, Beverly Hills, CA

Location: Cher's House
Address: 5148 Louise Avenue, Encino, CA 

This house had a huge gate but I was able to grab a picture from the slight break in the middle and got the edge of the house.

Location: The High School
Address: 1600 Campus Road, Eagle Rock, CA  Occidental College

Mr. Hall's intro shows him walking toward Booth Music and Speech Center.

Swan Hall was used as the cafeteria.

When Cher offers her coffee to Mr. Hall, Johnson Hall can be seen in the background.

Shortly after, he shares that coffee with Miss Geist outside the same building.

The main building seen several times, including when Cher gives Tai the rundown, is Johnson Student Center.

The stoners hang out on the grass at the Samuelson Campus Pavilion.

The fountain where the gang takes pictures is at Booth Music and Speech Center.

Location: The Liquor Store

Location: Tai's Near Death Experience
Address: 14006 Riverside Drive, Sherman Oaks, CA   Westfield Fashion Square 

This is not the exact spot that it was filmed, but you get the gist.  Originally I had read other mall interior shots were done at The Beverly Center but it turns out they were filmed here as well, although I didn't realize that until after my visit.  So until next time…
