On Location

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.

Can you help? Do you know any of the Los Angeles, S. California (or any other) filming locations used for A Nightmare on Elm Street? [Please send them in]
