The tunnel is roughly halfway between the Greek Theatre and the Griffith Observatory, just where Vermont Canyon Road and Mt. Hollywood Drive meet. The tunnel can also be seen in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Throw Momma from the Train and WarGames.



  1. Where did they shoot the scenes that took place in the town where the clock tower & the diner are?

    1. Universal studios Backlot. Most of the locations such as the clock tower, diner, movie theater is located specifically in Courthouse Square. The exact same locations were used to serve as Kingston Falls (town in the Spielberg classic Gremlins)

  2. What about the house in the future? Hilldale house?

    1. That's located at 3793 Oakhurst St. El Monte, Ca. 91732. It's a gated community, however, and not easily accessible.
