Say Anything Filming Locations:

When Lloyd first calls Diane, he mentions how they sat together at Bel-Square which is a mall in Bellevue WA, a suburb of Seattle. But when he drives past "the scene of their controversial first date" it is Westlake Center in downtown Seattle.

The place where they shot the boombox scene is actually across the street from the 7-11 where Lloyd sweeps the glass out of Diane's way.

John Rigney wrote in to say that "None of the scenes with the actors, were filmed on-location here in Seattle. They were all shot in and around L.A. Any scenes with Seattle locations in them were all second unit footage." Can anyone confirm?

There's a quick cut scene of Loyd driving past a teapot shaped building. The building is actually located in Tacoma and use to be an old coffee shop. I'm pretty sure it closed a long time ago and I'm not sure if the building is still standing. It's located in what we use to call "Nalley Vally", because the Nalley pickle factory was the biggest builing in the area. [Thanks to Johnny]

The giant coffee pot is called Bob's Java Jive, 2102 S Tacoma Way, Tacoma, WA. You can read more about it here. It's still there. [Thanks to Countess1970]

When Diane and her father are driving to the graduation ceremony the film cuts to a shot of a statue of several people and a dog that has been decorated with graduation caps and balloons. That statue is called "Waiting for the Interurban" and is located in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle. [Thanks to Countess1970]

The 7-11 where Lloyd brushes the glass from in front of Diane is on the corner of Tujunga & Magnolia (11340 Magnolia Blvd. 91601-3705), in N. Hollywood. The park is across the street, as well (North Hollywood Park).

After Diane breaks up with him, Lloyd drives around a corner very fast. That corner is Bob Hope Dr. (used to be S. Catalina St.) and Riverside Dr., right next to the 134 Fwy (and the NBC lot!). [Thanks to Gary Coleman]

*Note: this is a location in the Extended Scenes section of the DVD - not a shot from the theatrical release* When Lloyd & Diane are driving Mike Cameron home from the party they drive by a Dick's Drive-In. I believe this is the Wallingford neighborhood location of Dick's at 111 N.E. 45th St., Seattle WA.

Incedentally, Wallingford is where the Guild 45th Theater is located, as mentioned in the trivia section. It is located at 2115 North 45th St., Seattle. [Thanks to Countess1970]

The prison scence shows a sign that says Spokane Correctional Faculty. This was most likely filmed at the Airway Heights correction center in Spokane County, WA. Airway heights is approximately 10 miles from the City of Spokane. Spokane is the second largest city in WA and about 284 miles from Seattle where the film is supposed to take place. Can anyone confirm? [Thanks to Brenna Jones]
