Locations Manager(s): Craig Pointes
Under their watchful eye, the following special places were used for filming "A Nightmare on Elm Street":
These scenes were actually shot at a private residence, located in Los Angeles, S. California. Google Map
Nancy's boyfriend's house (played by Johnny Depp) is right across the street just as it was in the movie.
The filming location for Nancy's house was only a half mile (1Km) from 8160 W Sunset Blvd which was the scene from the 1993 movie Falling Down where Robert "Dfens" Foster (Michael Douglas) shot out a phone booth and only 5 miles (7.7Km) from the scene with Nick the Nazi's surplus store.
The school sceens were filmed at the John Marshall High School, 3939 Tracy Street, LA, which still stands today.
The Police Station where John Saxon works, is really an old abandoned library in Hollywood, located at 4575 Santa Monica blvd at Vermont Ave in East Hollywood [Thanks to Robert Vannoy]
The boiler room of the old Lincoln Heights Jail at 421 North Avenue in Lincoln Heights was also used.

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.
