I was unabashedly a fan of the movie Clueless when it came out. It was the classic teenage rom-com of my era. Yeah, the story might be a bit… er… creepy if you think about it but still – who didn’t want to be Cher? The gorgeous, wealthy, and kind hearted girl who finds her love. And… gasp… is from ENCINO and not Beverly Hills?!
In honor of the 20th anniversary of the movie – which makes me groan just thinking about it – Curbed LA put out a list of all the hot spots featured in the movie with their actual locations. Seeing as though I live in the east valley, Circus Liquor is a stop I’ve been known to pop into from time to time. And every single time I can’t help but think of the scene where Cher gets stranded after the house party in the valley. But I never knew that her actual house was also located in Encino! Not that I should be surprised, Encino is a sleeper community filled with ritzy houses of people who want quieter lifestyles than those found over the hill. Other points of interest in the San Fernando Valley: the house party house in Granada Hills, Fashion Square Mall in Sherman Oaks, and Grant High School in Valley Glen providing the interior classroom shots.Somehow I think that if Cher ever knew her house was located in Encino, she’d be screaming, “As if!”
