Less Than Zero Filming Locations:

The final scene appears to have been filmed in Joshua Tree National Monument.

The windmills looks the windmills near I10 north of Palm Springs, near the highway to Joshua Tree.

The building where the large party scenes took place in the film were shot at the Park Plaza in downtown Los Angeles - across the street from MacArthur Park (at Sixth Street and Park View). The building was also used for "The Hidden" and "The Bodyguard". [Thanks to Kyle J. Wood]

Clay’s Parent’s House was Silvertop @ 2138 Micheltorena St. Los Angeles, CA 90039 The house, an early residential project by influential Southern California architect John Lautner, was originally built as a home for Kenneth Reiner, a Los Angeles engineer and industrialist. When Reiner went bankrupt, the house ended up in the hands of the Burchill family, who worked with Lautner to complete the residence. In 1976, they moved in. Now in her nineties, Jacklyn Burchill recently put the house on the market for $7.5 million. That's a bargain compared to some of Lautner's other houses and so it eventually sold for more. Lautner, known for his space-age flair, designed houses that were practically tailor-made for Hollywood appearances. His work has shown up in everything from Diamonds Are Forever to The Big Lebowski to The Simpsons. The engineering marvel known as Silvertop features a dramatically curved roof that blends into the surrounding hillside, a cantilevered concrete driveway, and one of the first infinity pools.

Alana's house was located at 9904 Kip Drive in Beverly Hills, however, that house was demolished in the 1990's and rebuilt. [Thanks to PaulH]

LX Preview

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.
