In Steven Spielberg’s “Catch Me If You Can,” Frank Abagnale, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, takes his father, played by Christopher Walken, to an upscale restaurant, where he tells him he bought him a Cadillac.
The actual location is not a restaurant at all. It’s the famous “Pompeian Room” of the Doheny Mansion, located on the campus of Mount Saint Mary’s University in Los Angeles, California. While the mansion does offer occasional tours to the public, some of the guides can be strict about allowing photos inside. Many films have shot at the mansion, including “The Princess Diaries,” “Drag Me To Hell” “The Three Amigos” and more.

Near the end of the film, Frank is arrested in front of his mother’s house, which can be found in Pasadena.
