Actual filming locations for the sci-fi series, "Stitchers".
At 10:53, Kirsten & Cameron go to "Dreamcatcher Studio" to investigate
the murder of a psychic, whose TV show was produced at the studio.
This is actually Siren Studios, an independent studio located
at 6087 Sunset Blvd, in Hollywood.
( It's across the street from the larger Sunset-Gower studios,
where they filmed "Dexter" and "How to Get Away with Murder".)
In the screencap above, the camera is looking up and northwest.
Here is a matching Google StreetView of the building.
However, the next shot, of Kirsten, Cameron and Fisher
walking down a narrow passageway, wasn't shot at that building:
Siren Studios now has four buildings in a row along the north side of Sunset Boulevard,
located at (from west to east) 6087, 6069, 6063 and 6061 Sunset.
That original, opening shot was of the building at the west end: 6087. This walk & talk scene
was shot in the narrow walkway between 6063 & 6061 (the two buildings at the east end).
The camera is looking north, as they walk south, towards Sunset.
Here is a matching Google StreetView of that passageway.
He stops to rest, and notices a black SUV tailing him, and acting suspiciously.
This scene was shot on the streets right next door to Siren Studios, in Hollywood.
In this scene, the jogger first runs north down west side of LaBaig Avenue.
He stops to rest at the southeast corner of LaBaig & Harold Way
(that unusual door with the ivy is at 1524 LaBaig).
Then he runs west down south side of Harold Way.
In the background, you can see a fake street sign reading "Pierce Drive"
In real life, that sign reads LaBaig Ave.
Here is a matching Google StreetView of the street.
pans down to show Kirsten at a rooftop party, as she investigates what
she believes will be an upcoming murder.
As she mingles at the party, the always-protective Cameron shows up to make
sure she's safe. Unfortunately, her boyfriend also shows up, unexpectedly,
and appears to be jealous of the time she spends with Cameron.
We're back at Siren Studios again, only this time, on the roof. Which roof?
Remember, they have four different buildings. My first guess was the roof
of that tall building at the west end (6087), but it didn't quite line up, and
it has a wrought-iron fence around its edge, which this roof does not.
So, lining up the view with Google Earth, I've decided that this scene was shot
on the roof of the tall building at the studio's east end: at 6061 Sunset Blvd.
Here is a matching Google StreetView of the building.
35:35: After the party, Kirsten & Cameron walk & talk.
Cameron thinks she's delaying going home because she wants to avoid her fiance.
A moment later, they spot Mia sneaking back into the studio, and
manage to save her from being strangled, only to learn that
she was trying to set fire to the place.
Once again, we're back to Siren Studios, but this scene was shot on driveway
on the east side of that original tall building, at 6087 Sunset Blvd, in Hollywood.
The camera is looking south, across Sunset.
And here is a Google StreetView of the lot.
EPISODE 10: “Full Stop”:
00:46: We see the exterior of the "Jade Fog" Chinese restaurant,
that acts as a front for the subterranean Stitchers lab.
I believe this is the first time they've shown the exterior of what is supposed to be the "Jade Fog".
It's obviously in L.A.'s Chinatown Plaza, but it took me some time
to figure out exactly which building it was, in that complex.
Turns out, this corner space doesn't house a restaurant in real life.
It's located on Chinatown's Gin Ling Way, facing north.
But it sits just to the left (east) of, and shares the building with, an actual restaurant,
called Blossom Vietnamese, at 451 Gin Ling Way And on the other side of this
building, around the corner, is K.G. Louie, a popular gift shop, at 432 Gin Ling Way.
This small shop is tucked in between those two, in the northeast corner of the building.
In real life, the space houses a fortune reading/palm reading shop
called "It Pun", at 436 Gin Ling Way, in Chinatown.
( Somewhat ironic, since the previous episode dealt with a fortune-telling psychic.
And no, you won't find a hidden lab 200 meters below the shop. )
In the screencap above, the camera is looking southwest (and up) from that corner.
Here is a distant Google StreetView of the east side of the shop.
And here is a Google Earth view.
( For those who like GPS, the coordinates are 34.065525, -118.237345 )
05:42: We see an ambulance pull up to a hospital, after Cameron
is shot in a restaurant by a hit-man gunning for Fisher.
This is really Los Angeles Center Studios, in downtown L.A.
The official address is 1201 W. 5th Street, but this scene was shot on
Boyleston Street (around 450 S. Boyleston), which runs through the studio
and under this "Sky Bridge".
The camera is looking west, across Boyleston, at the studio's main building.
Center Studios is one of the lesser-known studios, at least to the general public,
but Hollywood does a lot of shooting there. You'd be surprised how
many times it pops up on various TV shows & movies, including
recent episodes of "Extant" and "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."
Here is a Google StreetView of the studio.
16:16: When she discovers that the key she found in her mother's tomb was for a
safe deposit box, Kirsten goes to a bank, to open the box.
Inside the box, she finds a large book - a missing encyclopedia volume (K).
Cameron later finds a computer memory card hidden inside the book,
which contains a video made by her late father.
This is Farmers & Merchants Bank,
at 401 S. Main Street, in downtown Los Angeles.
That's at the southwest corner of 4th & Main.
And here is a Google StreetView of the bank.
27:19: Kirsten is inside a memory of an alley at night, as she watches
the hit-man who shot Cameron in the restaurant.
She overhears a message - to her - from a woman planning to kill the hit-man in order
to send a warning to her. She then sees the guy stabbed to death.
This is Werdin Place alley (AKA "Indian Alley") located
between 5th Street & Winston Street, in downtown L.A.
In the screencap above, the camera is looking south, towards 5th Street.
Here is a Google StreetView of the alley.
More Stitchers locations coming soon.
