On Location

The same house was used for Martyís momís house in 1955 in Back to the Future.

The street where Scott walks Boof home is actually Bushnell Avenue, South Pasedena -the same street we see Michael J. Fox pursues Crispin Glover down as Marty McFly in "Back to the Future" and was used in loads of 80's movies.

The part were Scott is riding on top of the van was shot going down Colorado Blvd, Pasadena.

Tony's Liquor (now the quick stop), Foothill Blvd, Tunjunga, CA (the liquor store where Stiles fails to buy beer)

The hardware store Scott's pop owned was Balk's "True Value" Hardware store at 1518 Mission Street, South Pasadena. It has since closed down.

John Burroughs Middle School in Los Angeles, California was used for most of the school sets including the classrooms. [Thanks to Robert / Rod Daniel]

Actually, John Burroughs Middle School in Los Angeles, California was used as the interior shots as opposed to John Burroughs High School in Burbank. [Thanks to Robert]

The basketball scenes were filmed at Lennox Middle School, just east of LAX. [Thanks to Rod Daniel]

South Pasadena Middle School (Fair Oaks Blvd. Between Rollin & Oak Streets) the basketball game scenes were shot in the schools gym. [Thanks to Christopher Cotton]

When Scott is riding a top the green truck, it is actually heading South on Fair Oaks Avenue in South Pasadena and turns West on Mission Avenue. For a split second you can even see the Fair Oaks Avenue sign in the background, followed by Mission as he heads West.[Thanks to Pete]

Some of the locker room scenes in Teen Wolf were shot at Fremont Public High School in Fremont, Nebraska. The obvious one is in the coaches office where a "Husker Power" University of Nebraska poster can be seen on the wall in the background. The address is, 1750 N Lincoln Ave, Fremont, NE 68025. [Thanks to Irate Matt]

There has been long standing debate as to whether other locations used allegedly included Fremont, NB. An Alumni of Fremont High School wrote in with the following:

"In a previous review of "Teen Wolf" it states that some of the gym scenes and locker room scenes were filmed at Fremont High School, in Fremont Nebraska. This is a false report. None of the scenes from "Teen Wolf" were filmed in the state of Nebraska.

There is a credit at the end of the film that recognizes Friends from Fremont Nebraska. The reasoning for this rumor is the sticker and calendar in the coaches office that are Husker Power and various Husker items that make an appearance in the movie. Scotts kitchen is a Husker calendar as well. This is being investigated and believed that someone from the City of Fremont may have came up with the plot and possibly idea for Teen Wolf.

All I know for sure is that NO shots were made in the school or in Nebraska. A friend of mine was the Coach of the football team at that time and he has no recollection of such filming in locker rooms or thereabouts. I am also a Alumni of Fremont High and nothing in any scene is familiar. Neither Michael J. Fox nor the Coach Bobby Finstock stepped foot in Nebraska much less Fremont confirmed by then Head Football Coach and Athletic Director of Fremont High at the time of shooting of film."

Can you help? Do you know any of the S. California (or any other) filming locations used for Teen Wolf? [Please send them in]
