House On Haunted Hill | 1999

For this campy 1999 remake of William Castle’s 1958 House On Haunted Hill, the amusement park is largely a model, based on a real park in Orlando, Florida.

House On Haunted Hill filming location: Griffith Observatory, Griffith Park, Los Angeles
House On Haunted Hill location: the entrance to the house: Griffith Observatory, Griffith Park, Los Angeles

The extravagant house this time itself consists of miniatures and matte paintings. Only the entrance is real. It’s the art deco frontage of the Griffith Observatory, 2800 East Observatory Road, in Griffith Park, Los Angeles.

Famous from Rebel Without A Cause, the Observatory has also been seen in Bowfinger, Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, the spoofy 1987 film of Dragnet – with Tom Hanks and Dan Aykroyd, The Rocketeer and, of course, The Terminator.
