After a battle with The Sandman, played by Thomas Haden Church, Spider-Man climbs out of a crashed armored truck, in front of this building in Cleveland, Ohio.

These scenes were filmed at the famous “Pompeian Room” of the Doheny Mansion, located on the campus of Mount Saint Mary’s University in Los Angeles.  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,” “Catch Me If You Can,” “Drag Me To Hell,” “Flowers In The Attic,” “The Three Amigos” and more.

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind (2004)

The 2004 Michel Gondry film “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” shot around many parts of New York, from New York City to Mauntauk, at the far end of Long Island, with some additional filming in New Jersey. The beach house Joel and Clementine, played by Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet, break into can be found in Wainscott in Long Island. The home is part of the Georgica Association, a private enclave of upscale houses. There is limited street parking nearby, but it requires permit ID. As for the beach itself, the house is perched on a small stretch that is privately owned by the Georgica Association beginning at Beach Lane. If you stop by outside of peak times and keep your visit brief, in our experiences, the neighborhood residents were accommodating, but your experience could differ from ours.

LOCATION: 40 Association Rd, Wainscott, NY 11975 (GPS coordinates: 40°55’45.4″N, 72°14’00.2″W)

The house has also appeared in the film “The Nanny Diaries” as well as the music video for “Seasons Change” by Expose.

Later in the film, the house is seen collapsing as a visual representation of Joel’s memory being erased. This was of course a visual effect.

Clementine’s house was formerly located in Booklyn (59 Orient Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11211), but has since been demolished.

Joel’s apartment can be found in Yonkers. He is seen walking along the sidewalk as Stan and Patrick, played by Mark Ruffalo and Elijah Wood, drive past.

LOCATION: 123 Valentine Ln, Yonkers, NY 10705

Joel is seen turning into his apartment driveway here.

As Stan and Patrick perform the memory wipe, we see into Joel’s memories of an argument he had with Clementie as she approaches this corner.

LOCATION: Saratoga Ave / Caryl Ave, Yonkers, NY 10705

Joel walks after Clementine past the Saratoga Market, but every time he reaches the end of the building, it looks the same as where he began, with Clementine now walking the opposite direction.

LOCATION: 208 Saratoga Ave, Yonkers, NY 10705

Here is the other side of the building.

Here is a panoramic view of the full building where Joel walks back and forth, always ending up where he began, with the store signage going blank as his memories continue to be erased.

Midway through his memories of Clementine being erased, Joel decides he no longer wants to proceed and begins trying to hide her in unrelated memories from his life, in the hopes that he can prevent losing her altogether. They are seen running through New York City’s famed Grand Central Terminal, with people around them disappearing as Joel’s memories are zapped. The two run down these stairs. Grand Central Terminal has been seen in countless films, such as “Midnight Run,” “North By Northwest,” “Carlito’s Way,” “Seconds,” “The Fisher King,” “The Avengers,” “The Ice Storm,” “Unfaithful,” “Hackers,” “The French Connection,” “Armageddon,” “Revolutionary Road” and many more.

LOCATION: 89 E 42nd St, New York, NY 10017

Joel’s childhood home could be found in Bayonne, New Jersey (105 E 23rd St, Bayonne, NJ 07002), but it has since been demolished.

Small Soldiers (1998)

In the 1998 Joe Dante film “Small Soldiers,” Alan’s house was not actually a real house, rather a set constructed on the Warner Bros. Ranch in Burbank, California.  The set was built specifically for the film, but remains standing to this day and has since been used for other productions, including “Pleasantville” and the TV series “Pushing Daisies.”

This Warner Bros. Ranch is separate from the main Warner backlot and unfortunately not open to public tours at this time.

Louis lives at this estate, which is the Oak Alley Plantation in Louisiana.  The plantation is open to public tours.  This house and its distinct row of trees can actually be seen from the road of LA-18.  However, you might find it difficult to stop and get a photo, as there is no parking along the street.  The same home was also seen in the 1998 film “Primary Colors.”

LOCATION: 3645 LA-18, Vacherie, LA 70090

Lestat and Claudia, played by Tom Cruise and Kirsten Dunst, wipe out an entire family after Claudia plays piano for them.

The scene where Mary Jane Watson, played by Kirsten Dunst, kisses an upside down Spider-Man in the rain wasn’t filmed in New York City either.  It was filmed on the Warner Bros. Lot in Burbank, California.  Designed to look like New York alley, this facade can be seen as part of their studio tour.
