Miracle Mile Locations
Locations Manager(s): Ross Fanger, Kristi Frankenheimer
Under their watchful eye, the following special places were used for filming "Miracle Mile":
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).

Miracle Mile was partially filmed in an area of Los Angeles actually known as the Miracle Mile.
The Pan Pacific Auditorium (most famously seen in Xanadu) was also used.

LX is our radical new locations feature that we've been beavering away on.. For years!
Each location will have it's own page with then/now pictures, maps, StreetView, discovery story and the most detailed explanations on how the location was used. Most importantly, the locations will have a status that shows whether they are verified correct and by whom. We are working with the actual locations managers or other crew where possible. The whole thing will be very interactive and you will, of course, be able to update everything.
