Pleasantville location: the ‘Pleasantville’ school: Rose City High School, South Oak Knoll Avenue, Pasadena

Nineties teens find themselves trapped in the perfectly anodyne world of Fifties monochrome soapland in Gary Ross’s technically brilliant satire.

Sadly, there is no ‘Pleasantville’. The picture perfect town was built from scratch in Malibu Creek State Park, 1925 Las Virgenes Road, Calabasas.

School interiors were filmed at Rose City High School, 325 South Oak Knoll Avenue in Pasadena, which was also seen in Stuart Little 2, Steven Spielberg’s Catch Me If You Can and supplied ‘Harvard’ interiors for Legally Blonde; also at Valencia High School, Valencia; and at John Burroughs Junior High, 600 South McCadden Place, Hancock Park, a veteran location seen in Never Been Kissed, Pretty In Pink, What Dreams May Come and Teaching Mrs Tingle.
