Title card/walking through the parking lot - 4459 Eagle Rock Blvd. Los Angeles, Ca. 90041
(All Star Lanes)
At the time of my visit, the All Star Lanes bowling alley was permantly closed. The diner interiors were filmed half a mile north at 4720 Eagle Rock Blvd.
At the time of filming, it was an unused mortuary filled with coffins, embalming fluid and a hearse. The building was demolished shortly after filming and remained a vacant lot for almost a decade. The building on the other side of the parking lot, behind the warehouse remains the same.
