We are back with Part 2 of the Complete Guide to Jerry Maguire Filming Locations. Let’s dig in!

  1. Cushman’s House – (Morehart Mercantile, 9016 Mupu Road, Santa Paula)

“You know, I told myself, ‘He shows up, we stick with him.’” – Matt Cushman

29

Matt Cushman (Beau Bridges), whose word is stronger than oak, makes a verbal agreement to keep Jerry as his son Frank’s agent while in the living room of his Odessa, Texas ranch house. Filming actually took place at a home on the sprawling grounds of Morehart Mercantile, a feed and farm supply company in Santa Paula.

  1. Jerry, Ray and Dorothy’s Airport Goodbye – Terminal A Entrance, John Wayne Airport (18601 North Airport Way, Santa Ana)

“Jerry, do you know the human head weighs eight pounds?” – Ray Boyd

30 31

 Dorothy and Ray drop Jerry off at the airport before the NFL Draft outside of the entrance to Terminal A at the John Wayne Airport. While there, Dorothy fondly watches a father say goodbye to his wife and young son.

Jerry Maguire – Complete Guide to Filming Locations – Part 1

4 Comments

jerry-maguire-blu-ray-movie-title

In honor of its 20th anniversary, I’ve teamed up with the amazing Lindsay Blake, to uncover and compile a complete list of all of the film’s shooting locales, as well as some insider tidbits. As always, many of these locations are private residences or businesses, so please don’t trespass. So, without further ado, we present The Complete Guide to Jerry Maguire Filming Locations – Part I. Stay tuned for Part II tomorrow!

  1. Opening Montage

“So, this is the world and there are almost 6 billion people on it. When I was a kid, there were three. It’s hard to keep up.” – Jerry Maguire

2 3

The movie’s opening, in which successful sports agent Jerry Maguire (Tom Cruise) introduces the audience to several of his young clients, was shot at various athletic facilities across L.A., mainly in the San Gabriel Valley. The “Indiana” Basketball Court where Clark Hodd (Michael James Johnson), the best point guard in the country, shoots hoops is Robinson Park, located at 1081 North Fair Oaks Avenue in Pasadena. The area where Clark plays in the segment was remodeled in the mid-2000s and the number of courts reduced from four to two, so it looks a bit different today. Erica Sorgi (the All-American diver played herself) – “You’ll see her in the next Olympics!” – skips across the living room of a house at 972 Cornell Road in Pasadena before hurling off a diving board a few miles away at the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center at 360 North Arroyo Boulevard. Dallas Molloy (also playing herself), whose lawsuit, as Jerry tells us, helped paved the way for women boxers everywhere, throws jabs in the boxing gym at Villa-Parke Community Center at 363 East Villa Street, again in Pasadena.

The “Indio” baseball field where Art Stallings (Jordan Ross) shows us what pure joy looks like is Pote Field at 4730 Crystal Springs Drive in Griffith Park. The “Great Frank Cushman” (Jerry O’Connell) tosses a pigskin at what is supposed to be an Odessa, Texas stadium, but, in reality, he is at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum at 3911 South Figueroa Street in Exposition Park. And Brookside Golf Course at 1133 Rosemont Avenue in Pasadena is where a young golfer (Brandon Christianson) throws a club at his coach.

 

  1. NFL Owners Meeting – The Westin Los Angeles Airport (5400 West Century Boulevard, Westchester)

“Now I’m the guy you don’t usually see. I’m the one behind the scenes. I’m the sports agent.” – Jerry Maguire

4 5

Following the opening, the scenery shifts to an NFL owners meeting taking place in the bustling lobby of what was then the LAX DoubleTree Hotel, but today is The Westin Los Angeles Airport. There, Jerry wheels and deals for his various clients, trying to secure a $14-million-per-year/5-year offer for one player. Hey, no one said winning was cheap!

Singles Locations: 20 Years Later – Part 2

Comments Off


We are back with Part 2 of our look at Singles locations. Amazing how some things have changed, while others have stayed the same, huh?

 

  • Linda (Kyra Sedgewick) gets her car fixed at University Auto Repair (the bench was added). The name of the business has changed over the years, but it’s still there at 5330 Roosevelt Way NE.

 

  • The Soundgarden concert footage was shot at the Central Tavern. The Singles wrap party was held at the Off Ramp Cafe (now the El Corazon) and Mookie Blaylock (later renamed Pearl Jam) played their first show here too.

 

  • Steve (Campbell Scott) and Linda had “water” at the Virginia Inn at 1937 1st Avenue. The location looks nearly identical to what is captured on film over 20 years ago.

 

  • The Pioneer Square Newsstand was built for Singles on the side of the J&M Cafe at 201 1st Avenue South in Pioneer Square. The J & M is still going strong.
Additional locations:

  • The Mother Love Bone graffiti seen in the alley at The Vogue (in Belltown) is now history. The Vogue moved to Capitol Hill and has since closed.
  • The Alice in Chains concert footage was shot at Pier 29 in a warehouse that the production turned into a club.
  • Jimi Hendrix’s grave is located at the Greenwood Memorial Park in Renton.
  • Other iconic locations featured include the Fremont Bridge, the Seattle Center roller coaster (now gone), Gas Works park, Occidental Park and Pioneer Square (where the theatrical poster was shot).

Singles Locations: 20 Years Later – Part 1

Comments Off

Greg here. Since I live in Seattle and with today marking Singles 20th anniversary, I thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the filming locations and how they look now. I’ve included stills from the movie along with recent pictures that I’ve taken. It’s crazy how many locations are gone or completely changed, while others have stood the test of time. We hope you enjoy Part 1 of this trip down memory lane.

 

  • The Coryell Court apartment building is located at 1820 E. Thomas Ave on the corner of 19th and E. Thomas Ave in the Capitol Hill neighborhood.  Please remember that people live there, so you’ll want to respect their privacy if you stop by.

Tidbit: The fountain was created out of styrofoam for the film and the building is only two stories, so there’s not actually an elevator.  In reality, Cliff’s apartment was in the laundry room and storage area (located in the basement of the apartment complex).

 

  • The grocery store where Steve (Campbell Scott) buys the pregnancy tests from Doug (Jeremy Piven) was the Wallingford Food Giant, now the QFC at 1801 N. 46th St.
 
  • The Java Stop where Janet (Bridget Fonda) and Cliff (Matt Dillon) work was located in the O.K. Hotel, under the Alaskan Way viaduct in Pioneer Square (212 Alaskan Way S.). The building was so damaged during the Nisqually earthquake in February 2001, that it was knocked down. Many Seattle rock bands including Nirvana, Soundgarden and Mudhoney played here.
 
  • The bench where Linda (Kyra Sedgewick) and Ruth (Devon Raymond) chat is still located in a small park at the corner of 4th and Lenora. This is directly across the street from the Cinerama.
Additional locations:
  • Steve meets the Mayor (Tom Skerritt) at Chandlers Crabhouse (901 Fairview Ave N).
  • Steve and Linda see a film at The Admiral Theater in West Seattle (2343 California Ave SW) right before their car accident at the intersection of California Avenue SW & SW Charleston Street.
  • Steve’s work was located at the “Spam Can” building right down from Capitol Hill at 1730 Minor Avenue North.
We will return later this week with our Part 2 look at Singles locations.
