The Actual Southern California Locations where the
1998 Adam Sandler comedy,
"The Wedding Singer", was filmed.








In the film, wedding singer Robbie (Adam Sandler) lives in his sister's basement.

You'll find Robbie's sister's house at 1075 ETopeka Street, in PasadenaCA.

It's on the north side of the street, in the north part of Pasadena (up near Altadena).

or do anything else that might disturb the residents.

Robbie falls for Julia (Drew Barrymore), despite the fact that both of them are engaged to other people.

You'll find Julia's house at 43 Sierra Place, in Sierra Madre, CA.

It's on the west side of the street, just south of Sierra Madre Blvd.

(Sierra Madre is a small town located northeast of Pasadena, not far from
the Santa Anita race track and the L.A. Arboretum.)

The outdoor setting for this early wedding (where Robbie sings) was the grassy mall at

The Huntington Library & Gardens, at 1151 Oxford Road, in San MarinoCA.

The Huntington is located just south of Pasadena, on what was once the private estate of a land baron.
That grassy mall (statues and all) is located just west of the Library and just north of the Art Museum.


         






The home of Robbie's rappin' Grandma Rosie (Ellen Albertini Dow) can be found at

1425 NOrange Grove Ave, in West Hollywood, CA.

It's on the west side of the street, a few houses south of Sunset Blvd,
just over a mile east of Grauman's Chinese Theatre.

Don't expect to see the white picket fence and roses - they were added by the producers.

When Robbie's friend Sammy (Allen Covert) wants to drive the limo, Robbie puts him through an obstacle course,
complete with traffic cones and bride mannequins. That scene was filmed in the west parking lot at
Descanso Gardens - 1418 Descanso Drive, La Canada/FlintridgeCA.

(Thanks to Owen, and Lindsay of iamnotastalker.com).


         



Robbie & Julia, Glen & Holly have a double date at a club named Spanky's.

That exterior was really the Black Cow Cafe - 2219 Honolulu Ave, in MontroseCA.

Montrose is a small town northeast of Glendale, and just west of Descanso Gardens.


         





Hoping to make more money to impress his fiancé, Robbie goes to a job interview at a bank.

That bank scene was filmed at the former Bank of America building
at 650 SSpring Street, in downtown Los Angeles.

That's on the east side of Spring St, just north of 7th St.

This impressive old bank has appeared in a number of movies and TV shows,
including "Seven", "The Mask", "St. Elmo's Fire" and "24".


         





The smoky bar where Robbie goes to drown his sorrows (and is consoled by an old drunk) is really

Avignone's bar, at 2321 Honolulu Ave, in Montrose, CA.

It's on the north side of the street, just a few blocks east of Spanky's.

(Thanks to Owen for this one.)


         





When Robbie & Julia finally get married in the big finale, they filmed that scene on the grassy mall at

The Huntington Library & Gardens - 1151 Oxford Road, San MarinoCA.

the same estate where they filmed that earlier wedding scene..

(Compare the white gazebo in the background in both scenes.)
