The actual Southern California locations where the
2010 movie
"Valentine's Day" was filmed.

Part 2






    Jamie Fox is doing another live "man on the street" broadcast from the street, when "cheating rat"
    tour guide 'Cisco Martinez' (Cyrus Alexander) is attacked by his angry girlfriend (Roberta Valderrama).

    This scene was shot on the sidewalk outside of the Hollywood Guinness World of Records
    at 6764 Hollywood Blvd, in Hollywood. That's just east of Hollywood & Highland.

    Here is a Google StreetView panorama.

             



    Emma Roberts is babysitting the lovesick kid (Bryce Robinson), at his grandparents' house
    (Shirley MacLaineHector Elizondo), when she loses the kid and begins searching for him.

    You'll find this house (and its white picket fence) at 14280 Greenleaf Street, in Sherman Oaks, CA.

    Here is a Google StreetView panorama.

             

    [ Warning: this is a private home.  Do not trespass on their property, knock on their door,
    or do anything else that might disturb the residents
    . ]




    We see that lovesick kid (Bryce Robinson) riding his bicycle past a hamburger place.

    This is the world's oldest existing Bob's Big Boy, at 4211 WRiverside Drive, in Burbank, CA.

    It was built in 1949, and has been seen in other films as well, including "Heat".

    Football player Eric Dane holds a press conference on a roof overlooking a marina.
    Reporters are expecting him to renounce his retirement. Instead, he surprises them
    by announcing that he is gay, and that he is not retiring.

    This scene was the roof of the Marriott Marina del Rey hotel, at
    4100 Admiralty Way, in Marina Del Rey (with the camera looking east).

    Here is a Google StreetView panorama.

             




    Meanwhile, babysitter Emma Roberts is still driving around, hunting for the lost kid.

    Along the way, she drives past a car wash with giant hand out front.

    That car wash (and the hand) is real.

     It's the Studio City Car Wash at 11514 Ventura Blvd, in Studio City.

    Here is a Google StreetView panorama.

             




    Cheating husband Patrick Dempsy is dining with his wife at a fine restaurant, when he gets exposed
    by his angry lover/waitress Jennifer Garner (who has just found out that the cad is married).

    The restaurant is the Bistro Garden At Coldwater, at 12950 Ventura Blvd, in Studio City, CA.

    Here is a Google StreetView panorama.

             




    Several of the women in the film wind up meeting at Jessica Biel's annual "I Hate Valentine's Day" party
    held at an Indian restaurant. This is where Jennifer Garner smashes a heart-shaped piñata,
    and where Emma Roberts finally finds the little boy she had been babysitting.

    Although this is supposed to be an Indian restaurant, called "The Golden Kadahi",
    in real life it is actually a Russian restaurant, called Romanov Restaurant,
    at 12229 Ventura Blvd, in Studio City, CA.

    Here is a Google StreetView panorama.

             




    Topher Grace and Anne Hathaway meet at a posh hotel restaurant for their
    romantic Valentine's Day dinner (where things are a bit too crowded).

    But Anne has been keeping a secret from him: she moonlights as a phone sex operator.
    When she steps outside to take a call, Topher catches her talking dirty to a client.

    This scene was shot at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, at 9500 Wilshire Blvd, in Beverly Hills.
    It's the same hotel where this movie's director (Garry Marshall) filmed "Pretty Woman".

    The interior scenes are shot in the lobby and the hotel restaurant, while the scene of Topher
    catching her were shot outside, in front of the hotel, by a bus bench that the director had
    placed in the exact same spot where he filmed a similar scene for "Pretty Woman".

    Here is a Google StreetView panorama.

             





    Hector Elizondo (who has left his wife, after finding out she cheated on him) goes with Topher Grace
    to see an old movie at a cemetery. It's an outdoor screening, with the movie projected on the side
    of a building, and the audience sitting on a lawn. Hector's wife, Shirley MacLaine shows up,
    during the screening, and they kiss & make up.

    This scene was shot at Hollywood Forever Cemetery,
    located at 6000 Santa Monica Blvd, in Hollywood.

    It is the final resting places of some of Old Hollywood's earliest and biggest stars,
    including Rudolph Valentino, Douglas Fairbanks, Tyrone Power and Nelson Eddy.
    (Click here to read more about the stars buried here.)

    The movie being shown is 1958's "Hot Spell", which stars a young Shirley Maclaine.

    ( And yes, they really do show old movies outdoors here... projected
    on the side of the mausoleum where Rudolph Valentino is buried. )
