  1. Thanks for posting the location of Jack Horner's house. I used to live in Diamond Bar, have been desperate to know where that place is since hearing it was in Covina. All those hills and streets look the same. Great site.

  3. THANK YOU to the site administrators for posting the photo locations of Boogie Nights. It's a great movie and I enjoyed dragging my wife around to visit EVERY SINGLE location from the movie. "KEEP ROCKIN' & ROLLIN'"

  4. The address for Jack's house is right on Bing, but Google is a few blocks off. The pool has been remodeled, but it's obviously the house when you see it on Bing Maps.

  7. From the address Google Maps gives, the house is actually about a block NW. You'll see it. It is I shaped and a corner lot.

  8. That's it alright. You can see the basketball hoop from when Bill's wife has "an ass in her cock".

  9. Watching the scene on youtube right now and just can't believe how great this movie was. The soundtrack is perfect. Elvin Bishop playing in the background. I don't know if there's movie that retroactively captured the 70s better, sans Dazed and Confused. When this movie first started airing on HBO I must have watched it every time it was on, and never got tired of it. Great acting, great story, great cinematography, and a near perfect soundtrack.

  10. Jack Horner's house is actually in West Covina, not Covina. Although google maps still seems to take you to the same location as when you type Covina. You can actually see the West Covina city limit sign just before getting to the house, just north of it. The house sits just on the southern border of West Covina. Not sure if it's the correct address, but 15144, East Cameron avenue, West Covina takes you to the exact location on google street view. Aim compass to where direct east is at the top of the screen.

  11. They filmed the scene where the gay basher picks up Dirk across the street from the church in a way where the church seems to tower in the background. You can see in the more recent camera picture that the church doesn't seem nearly as tall.

  14. Thanks so much for this post. This is 12 kinds of awesome! Just for fun, I made a Google Map of these locations: https://mapsengine.google.com/map/edit?mid=zKvpZFkUePvg.kF73EXlp0Nd4 . Do we think there are any interiors that were NOT shot at these locations (Dirk's pad, etc.)?

  15. One location I've never seen identified is the clothing store that Dirk & Co pick out their "...imported Italian nylon". You can see a "Dentistry" and Insurance business across the street -- and a 5-digit address that I can't quite make out.

  16. I visited a handful of these locations this week. Unfortunately, the drug dealer's house at 16801 Encino Hills Drive in Encino was demolished. A new 2-story home is being constructed there now.
