Airheads (1994)

The 1994 comedy “Airheads,” starring Brendan Fraser, Steve Buscemi and Adam Sandler, was filmed around Los Angeles, California. The exterior of the KPPX Rebel Radio station, where much of the film takes place is actually located on the grounds of Fox Plaza, more famously known for it’s appearance as Nakatomi Plaza in “Die Hard.” This building sits opposite the back entrance of the main building and connects to a parking structure, in an area typically off limits to the general public.

LOCATION: 2121 Avenue of the Stars, Los Angeles, CA 90067

The main Fox Plaza building in also seen many times in the film, such as when the band first arrives at the radio station.

Chazz, played by Brendan Fraser, unsuccessfully tries to submit a demo to Palatine Records.

The apartment of Kayla, played by Amy Locane, can be found in Hollywood. There are limited views from the street.

LOCATION: 1600 N Bronson Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90028

The Lone Rangers band lives in this apartment building overlooking Hollywood.

LOCATION: 6326 Franklin Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90028

The address is listed as Franklin Ave, which is deceptive. The road is atop a hillside, separating it from the main road of Franklin Ave. You actually need to take Yucca St to Ivar Ave to access it.

The band catches a show at the famous Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood. The venue pops up again later in the film when Officer Wilson, played by Chris Farley, goes looking for Kayla.
