Filming locations

Hollywood, Los Angeles, California… A place where dreams… And nightmares do come true.

A virtual guide from the haunted places where SCREAM 3 was filmed.

The Hollywood Sign

Built in 1923, it was part of an advertisement campaign that initially read Hollywoodland. It is one of the greatest symbols of cinema and one of the busiest tourist spot in the city of Los Angeles. The first image we see in SCREAM 3 was, on the first drafts, also a crime scene that mirrored both the first scene of SCREAM and also a real life tragedy – on the year of its inauguration an actress called Peg Entwistle jumped from the “H” letter.

On this early script, an actor called Ben Damon found his girlfriend, Christine, hanged on that place. Creepy!

Located in Griffith Park, southeast of Mount Lee and north of Mulholland Street.

101 Freeway

Then we find our first victim, Cotton Weary, stuck in traffic when he gets Ghost Face’s call. The filming took place on Shoreline Drive – not the freeway – in Long Beach, where Clueless (1995) was also filmed.

When he forces his way out of the traffic jam, Liev’s character actually goes into 101 Freeway “racing down the southbound Vine Street exit, to be exact, before making a right onto Vine, sailing past the Capital Records Building, and darting down Hollywood Boulevard“, according to I am Not a Stalker.

Cotton Weary’s House

This Spanish baroque house is located in 1336 North Harper Avenue, West Hollywood. It was built for silent movie stars Norma Talmadge and Gilbert Roland in 1929.

Most of this scene was filmed in the actual location, but Cotton’s death was rewritten and his office was rebuilt on the CBS soundstage.

“Faces of Jorunalism” Lecture

Moore Hall, part of UCLA is on Moore 100, UCLA, 457 Portola Plaza, Westwood.

Sunrise Studios

CBS Studio Center is a full service production facility with several sound stages – like the one used to rebuilt Woodsboro.

Located at 4024 Radford Avenue, Studio City.

Le Pain Quotidien

The little restaurant, that used to be called Replay Cafe when the filming took place, is at 8607 Melrose Avenue, West Hollywood.

Jennifer Jolie’s House

Jennifer’s house is a well-known movie and TV location called Runyon Ranch. It has a privileged view of Los Angeles that is used mostly for events.

Runyon Ranch stays at 3050 Runyon Canyon Road, Hollywood Hills West.

LAPD Office

At the time they’ve filmed SCREAM 3, this was recently a former LAPD Station. That’s where they’ve filmed the interior scenes of Derek Kincaid’s office.

North Hollywood Police Station is located at 11480 Tiara Street, North Hollywood.

John Milton’s Office

American Cement Building is right in front of MacArthur Park.

Located at 2404 Wilshire Boulevard, Westlake.

John Milton’s Mansion

The Paramour Estate had various names through the years and it was the location for several productions like Halloween: H20 and The Neon Demon.

It was designed by Robert D. Farquhar in 1923 for silent film star Antonio Moreno and his wife, oil heiress Daisy Canfield Danziger.

Canfield-Moreno Estate is located at 1923 Micheltorena Street, Silver Lake.

Sidney Prescott’s Hideway

Windwalk Ranch is a very secluded property that cannot be reached, unless it is booked.

Located at 21914 Goldstone Road, Topanga.
