Stay Where Your Favorite Movie Was Filmed

Why not stay in the same hotel where your favorite movie or television show was filmed? In Burbank you can do just that at the Safari Inn in Burbank’s Media District. This hotel has been the backdrop for the following iconic movies:

1. TRUE ROMANCE [1993]

The Safari Inn’s most notable onscreen appearance was in 1993’s True Romance, where it masqueraded as the supposed Hollywood-area motel where Clarence Worley (Christian Slater) and Alabama Whitman (Patricia Arquette) stayed while visiting L.A. Some camera trickery and crafty editing was used to make the hotel appear as if it was located on Sunset Boulevard in the movie.

2. APOLLO 13 [1992]

In July 1969, astronaut Jim Lovell hosts a house party where guests watch Neil Armstrong’s televised first human steps on the Moon. Afterwards Lovell, who had orbited the Moon on Apollo 8, tells his wife Marilyn that he intends to return to the Moon to walk on its surface. The wives and girlfriends of the astronauts all stay at the Safari Inn during the mission.

3. INCREDIBLES 2 [2018]

After the Incredibles family loses their home, the characters begin living in a very vintage-looking motel called Safari Court. The distinctive building, colored with yellow and pink hues, is recognizable for a reason: It’s based on a real place. The hotel is modeled after the Safari Inn, a semi-famous hotel in Burbank, CA located only a few streets away from Walt Disney Studios. Clearly, the photogenic location made an impression on the filmmakers.

Burbank is rich in Hollywood film history, and is packed with great locales featured in many famous movies and TV shows. For more details on film locations through the city, please visit the Filmed in Burbank page.
