On the second and fourth Friday of every month in 2020, Limelight Magazine will spotlight the filming location site(s) we visited for some of our favorite (and not so favorite) films. Today we spotlight the filming location for the 1985 movie House which was directed by Steve Miner. The top photo is a screen shot taken from the movie while the photo underneath is what the location looks like today.
The house from this movie is located at 329 Melrose Avenue in Monrovia, CA. When we visited this location, the street was under construction. We attempted to move the recycling bin in front of the house for the photo but the police officer directing traffic would not let us do so. He did allow us to take the photo from our rental car.
