Pretty Woman (1990)

In the 1990 romantic comedy “Pretty Woman,” Vivian, played by Julia Roberts, lives at this Hollywood hotel.  The real hotel is located right off of Hollywood Blvd, exactly as depicted in the film.  At the end of the movie, Edward, played by Richard Gere, climbs the fire escape with roses and the two passionately kiss.

The opera house was a composite of three locations. The exterior, supposedly located in San Fransisco, is actually the Carnegie Museum & Library in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The same building appears in the films “The Silence Of The Lambs” and “Flashdance.” In fact, this film used the actual footage from “Flashdance” as their establishing shot after their planned location fell through. The interior lobby was filmed at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County (900 W Exposition Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90007), while the theatre was filmed at Walt Disney Studios (500 S Buena Vista St, Burbank, CA 91521).
