Wanna see the real life filming location used for The Lighthouse in the movie?

These scenes were actually shot at A Lighthouse, located in Point Reyes Station, N. California. Google Map

There are 308 steps down to the lighthouse. [Thanks to Tom Barber]

The movie was filmed on location in the towns of Inverness, Point Reyes Station, Bodega Bay and Tomales Bay, tiny coastal towns in Marin County, about 40 miles north of San Francisco.

The house used for Stevie Wayne is in Inverness, CA. The current owners have tried to disguise it somewhat in order to deter gawkers but it is the house. [Thanks to Jeff Haller]

The old Tides dock and restaurant on Bodega Bay were used for scenes where the fishing boats docked.

The gas station and the church sign are located in Downtown Inverness, California.

The opening evening and later night shots of a beach with homes are of Stinson beach looking north towards the Bolinas Lagoon. This is confimed in the Directors commentary on the DVD

I live in Marin and love Drakes beach, I know Drakes is where the little boy finds the driftwood that says DANE. I would know those white cliffs anywhere. [Thanks to Liz Conway]

The actual church itself is located at 25 E. Laurel Ave. Sierra Madre, Ca. 91024. It is the Episcopal Church of the Ascension. [Thanks to Jack]

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.
