The Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 horror classic “Psycho” filmed largely in California, but some of the early scenes shot in Phoenix, Arizona. Marion Crane, played by Janet Leigh, takes her lunch break to meet a man she’s having an affair with at this hotel.
LOCATION: 101 S Central Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85004
The iconic house from the film can be found on the Universal Studios lot, as part of their studio tour. It is indeed the actual house from the film, although the back part of the house, not seen on camera in the film, was added later on by the studio, after the film had been released. There is also a Bates Motel set on the tour, but that set is actually from the sequel film, not the original.
LOCATION: 100 Universal City Plaza, Universal City, CA 91608

This was Alfred Hitchcock’s office on the Universal lot, which is commemorated with a drawing of the director’s famous silhouette.
