Twins was filmed at authentic Californian locations including Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA.

Vincent Benedict's (Danny DeVito) house is at 323 11th Street in Santa Monica, CA [Thanks to Dee83]

The street they drove down when they first got into New Mexico (narrow, with colorful houses) is Ledoux Street in Taos, just West of the Plaza.

The roadside cafe, with the beautiful valley in the background is on Hwy 150 (the road to Taos Ski Valley), Northeast of Taos, actually in Valdez/Arroyo Seco. It had been a gas station years ago, converted by film crew to 'cafe' for the movie. The valley in the background is the entrance to Taos Ski Valley.

By the way, poetic license... They cross the Rio Grande Gorge bridge 'on the way' to New Mexico. It is actually just 10 miles or so Northwest of Taos.

The Plaza where the Twins go shopping for Arnold's new clothes in in the Old Town Plaza of Santa Fe. When they walk in the street in their new suits, the St Francis Catholic Church (East end of the Plaza) is their backdrop. The La Fonda hotel is on the right (stage left). [Thanks to David Fore for the excellent New Mexico info]

Other locations included Houston, TX; Los Alamos, NM; Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, Taos, NM and The Plaza, Santa Fe, NM.

The twins father's house (the part where arnold Schwarzenegger's character walks up a driveway to meet him) is in San Marino, CA. on Lake Blvd. [Thanks to Mike Flores]

Exteriors for whispering pines were filmed at a colony in Santa Fe.

Can you help? Do you know any of the Los Angeles, (or any other) filming locations used for Twins, particularly Vincents House, The Supermarket, The "McKinley Corp" finale location, "Whispering Pines" colony in Santa Fe etc? [Please send them in]
