Seeing Stars: Where the Movies Were Shot (on Location)
Actual filming locations of the TV series, "Supergirl".
23:55: Continuing the montage, we see Supergirl foil a bank robbery.
This was shot on the back lot of Warner Bros. Studio, in Burbank - which is
fitting, since Warner Bros. owns D.C. comics, including Supergirl.
You can see this exact spot on the back lot when you take their guided studio tour.
It's called Embassy Courtyard, and it's just off New York street.
I already had a photo of it on my site:
Here is a Google StreetView of the exterior of the Warner Bros. studio.
At 24:44, she is shot with kryptonite darts and falls from the sky,
crashing onto a parked car in an alley.
This was shot in the same Frank Court alley as that initial running scene (at 11:37)
(albeit in a slightly different part of that alley).
The alley runs north/south linking 6th & 7th Streets,
between Broadway & Spring, in downtown L.A.
They shot this from just south of the alley's 6th Street entrance,
with the camera looking south/southwest.
Here is a Google StreetView of the alley.
31:51: Supergirl accepts a challenge from the supervillain Vartox, and
meets him at the National City power plant for a showdown.
This is actually the Long Beach Generating Station,
previously known as the Southern California Edison Power Plant.
It is located at the east end of Terminal Island, in Long Beach,
just north of the west end of the old Gerald Desmond Bridge.
The official address is 2655 W. Seaside Blvd, Long Beach, CA.
(But Google maps that address incorrectly.)
The original steam plant was built about 100 years ago, but it switched
to natural gas in the 1970s. It's now run by NRG Energy.
The bridge, glimpsed briefly when the bad guy flies off (at 34:16),
and seen in the screencap below, is the Gerald Desmond Bridge,
which links the west side of downtown Long Beach with Terminal Island.
Here is a Google StreetView of the power plant.
39:22: After that showdown at the power plant doesn't work out well (she's almost killed),
Supergirl confronts him once more when he's spotted driving his tanker truck
on a winding mountain road.
They stage an epic battle in the debris of the crashed & burning tanker truck.
This time, she fares a lot better in the battle...
This battle scene was shot on a stretch of the Soledad Canyon Road about
half a mile northeast of where Crown Valley Road branches off
of Soledad Canyon Road, in the Santa Clarita area.
Bing & Yahoo map the spot as 4380 Soledad Canyon, and MapQuest puts it at 4460,
but Google puts it at 6859 Soledad Canyon, which is quite a difference.
( The GPS coordinates are 34.448158, -118.210829 )
In the initial screencap of the truck driving on the road, the truck is
heading east/northeast on Soledad Canyon Road.
Here is a Google StreetView of that road.
43:16: Kara meets with Jimmy Olsen on roof of Catco, where he gives her a gift from Superman.
This is the roof of ARCO tower again, at 1055 W. 7th Street, in downtown Los Angeles,
(the same roof seen earlier when Kara meets with Winn).
In the screencap above, the camera is looking southwest, as below them,
the Harbor (110) Freeway curves around the L.A. Live center.
In the screencap below, the camera is looking east.
The striped building seen behind (and to the left) of Jimmy is Figueroa At Wilshire
(formerly Sanwa Bank) at 601 S Figueroa Street, in downtown Los Angeles
Here is a Google StreetView of the tower.
More Supergirl locations coming soon.
