    Do you have pictures of Alana’s house or Blair’s loft from Less Than Zero?

    • Kent says:

      Hi . The loft is an old brewery downtown LA. It was used for many films & TV shows. A number of photographers & artists lived & worked there . I did make up there several times but don’t remember the address but it’s well known location . I was in the green marble stairs building many times . The ones where Julian was sick .

    What about the beach house during the B&W sequence with Clay and Blaire at the beginning of the film? Malibu?

  5. Have you tracked down any of the Palm Springs locations from the movie? Since I live there now, I would love to stalk them. 🙂

    • Bob Maddox says:

      Several places
      – Dillon Road on the final scenes
      – The club was filmed in an empty retail building across from Don the Beachcomber North Palm Springs. (they put shrubbery and lights out front to make it look totally different)
      – The plaza theater at night.
      – Hotel scenes were at the Hyatt Hotel in the 220 north Palm Canyon block.
      – a lot of locations you won’t recognize because they have been demolished or refurbished.
      I was an extra in the movie.
