I'd like to thank PaulH of Halloween Filming Locations for finding this location.
Awesome collection, thanks.ReplyDelete
Nice job--however one error is posting that the Idle Spurs Bar is in Jean, Nevada--Idle Spurs is in Sandy Valley, Nevada--a long way from Jean, Nevada...Delete
according to the post office Sandy Valley IS Jean, NVDelete
IT actually is really amazing. I agree nice job manReplyDelete
Great Job. I have traveled to Vegas regularly since 1990, and know quite a bit of the town and have witnessed the changes.ReplyDelete
I Love the movie Casino, and just watched it again, noticing additional landmarks. Noticed the snow around Atomic Liquors for the first time (Kansas City scene), and some more.
Thanks for this.
I got a call from the location group about using my meat company for the San Marino grocery scene. I couldn't give up my building for the length of time needed for filming. I knew of a out of business meat company down the street from me and helped them get the property secured. I used to deliver meat to the Stardust and would see Lefty most everyday as his office was out by the dockReplyDelete
That's pretty fascinating, thank you for sharing!Delete
Thanks for sharing! How long did they need the business for? What did Lefty look like? Would love to know. Thanks!Delete
Loads of fun to see this collection! Caught myself saying "aaaahhh" about a dozen times. Many thanks !ReplyDelete
Fantastic job on this! Also really enjoyed the Breaking Bad & No Country For Old Men pages, and I'm about to dig in to more. I have a correction for one section up there, which you listed as "The Landmark". That awesome "Googie" building was actually the lobby of the old La Concha Motel, and as you stated is now found at the Neon Museum, serving as their entrance.ReplyDelete
It's too bad you didn't snap some photos of the old Riviera, because that was the location for much of the interior casino shots. As you may or may not know, the Riviera is the latest victim of "Implosion Fever" and has just been erased from the North Strip. The Riv was the last remaining original resort structure left, other than parts of the Tropicana further South. Myself and hundreds of others gave our best effort to prevent this obliteration of Rat Pack proportions, but greed & ignorance prevailed yet again.
Another sad fact regards the Stardust, which was the true subject of the film "Casino", was also unceremoniously blasted into oblivion in 2007, (along with the bungalows from her sadly-underappreciated neighbor the Royal Nevada/ Stardust Auditorium) only to be replaced by a rotting, unfinished multi-million dollar behemoth known as The Echelon.
It's truly a bona fide tragedy that Las Vegas has less than zero regard for their heritage & history! ...and on that note, anyone interested in helping to preserve what little is LEFT of old Las Vegas & her countless characters & their tales of bygone eras, is welcome to join us at Project: Viva Lost Vegas, which is a history/ charity endeavor I'm working on.
Thanks for all you do here!
Great work! Thank you!ReplyDelete
Fantastic! I would love to know where the INTERIOR house shots with Lefty and Ginger were done. Probably not the same as the exterior house you have pictured. Thanks!ReplyDelete
Yes, the whole house was used. I know the people who live there.Delete
I think the entire home was used.ReplyDelete
I have lived in Vegas for 20 yrs now, I have been by the house several times, from what I have heard They used the whole house, you can see the spiral staircase from the street in the upper room where Ginger breaks into the desk. and it backs up to the gold course where the agents landed.ReplyDelete
Does anyone know what specific scene La Concha motel was in?ReplyDelete
Yes. It was in the scene where Ginger & Nickie were having an affair.Delete
Very nice work indeed.ReplyDelete
As for Jean vs Sandy Valley, don't go by what the Post Office says. Jean is Jean, Sandy Valley is Sandy Valley.
Locals never confuse the two. Again, great work on the compilation. Thanks!
Yes. The scene where Ginger & Nickey are having an affair.ReplyDelete
I love this house SO much. It's amazing to see that it still looks exactly the same. If I ever won the lottery I would straight up BEG the people who live there to sell it to me !ReplyDelete
Does anybody know where the cops house was that Nickys gang shot up?ReplyDelete
There’s a brief classroom scene that was also filmed at Our Lady of Las Vegas school, it was while I was a student there 🙂ReplyDelete
My late Uncle Joe Rigano played one of the Kansas City mob bosses in this movie. He would talk endlessly about how much he enjoyed shooting in Vegas and of his experiences on the set. On top of being a fantastic film, it will always have a special place in my heart. RIP Uncle JoeyReplyDelete
