Arachnophobia (1990)

The 1990 comedy thriller “Arachnophobia” is set in the fictional Central California town of Canaima.  In reality, much of the film was shot in the similarly named town of Cambria.

The house of the Jennings, which was featured heavily in the film, was a set and no longer stands.

The funeral home where the spider first escapes is located on Main St.  However, the building seen in the film actually faces around the corner on Arlington St.  It currently operates as an antique store.

The house of Margaret Hollins can be found about thrity miles away from Cambia, in the town of Paso Robles.  The house is part of the Halter Ranch Vineyard, which is a large property, but this house sits close to the road.  Adelaida Rd is a long and winding road, passing countless vineyards.  Cell phone reception is very spotty through this area, so be sure you plan your directions well if you do visit.
