The movie starts at the George C. Page Museum in Hancock Park, where Harry first meets Julie, then outside at La Brea Tar Pits.
The dinner where Julie works and Harry gets the phone call is "Johnie's Coffee Shop", located on 6101 Wilshire Blvd. Built in 1955 in the Southern-California "Googie" style, it was first called "Romeo's Times Square" (one can hear a character actually say that when Harry first enters the diner). It has been closed since year 2000 but is still rented out to film crews. It was featured in movies like "Reservoir Dogs" (1992), "American History X" (1998) and "The Big Lebowski" (1998).
