The Principal Locations
Locations Manager(s): Terry Gusto
Under their watchful eye, the following special places were used for filming "The Principal":
Northgate High School in Walnut Creek, CA (Northern CA) was the "rich" high school that Belushi's character got transferred from. They filmed over a weekend there, and many students and faculty were extras. Belushi even posed for a picture with everyone on the steps in front of the school -- the picture is in the yearbook from that year! The address is 425 Castle Rock Rd, Walnut Creek, CA 94598. [Thanks to Lori Halt]
Alameda and Oakland, California were also used. [Thanks to Chris]
Johnny B. Goode's Bar on Webster St. in Alameda (Closed Now), where Belushi's character got drunk and smashed his ex-wife's date's car.
The Old Merritt College Building on Martin Luther King St. in Oakland was the High School. [Thanks to Kent]

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.
