Austin Powers In Goldmember (2002)

In the third Austin Powers film, “Austin Powers In Goldmember,” there is a flashback to Austin’s graduation from the British Intelligence Agency.  These scenes were filmed at Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills. While the outside of the Greystone grounds is open daily and free to the public, opportunities to tour inside are somewhat rare.  The property is owned by the City of Beverly Hills and regularly accommodates productions and private events.  Therefore, only a few times a year is access to the inside of the estate possible.  Planning ahead is required if you’d like to see inside.

The interior is also seen in the film, where Austin is in bed with a woman.  The same mansion has been featured in countless films, such as “The Big Lebowski,” “There Will Be Blood,” “The Social Network” and dozens more.

Near the end of the film, Jimmy makes his way to the Cabazon Dinosaurs to relive some family memories.  The dinosaurs are a roadside attraction in Cabazon, California and can be seen from the 10 freeway.  Originally built by a sculptor and theme park artist as a way to attract customers to his nearby restaurant, the dinosaurs now operate as a small museum and gift shop.  The dinosaurs were also seen in the 1984 film “Paris, Texas” and the 1985 film “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure.”

The Wonder Years

Much like “The Simpsons,” the setting of “The Wonder Years” was intended to be nonspecific, as to represent any American town.  However, the Arnold house from the show can be found in a very specific city; Burbank, California.  The house still looks nearly identical to how it appeared on the show.

Just across the street is Winnie Cooper’s house, exactly as depicted on the show.  The house has changed a bit, but still mostly resembles how it appeared on the show.

After three seasons, the Coopers relocate to a new home, said to be miles away.  In reality, the house is in the same neighborhood.

Paul Pfeiffer’s house wasn’t seen much in the series, but it did pop up a couple times.  It can be found on the same street as Winnie Cooper’s second house.

An alternate home was also used for Paul Pfiefer’s house.  It can be found in the same vicinity as the other homes.  In fact, it’s located directly beside the first Pfeifer house.

While the Arnold house is of course the most well known, fans of the show should also check out the other houses when in the neighborhood.  All of them are within blocks of one another and can be seen in mere minutes.
