Is That Near The In-N-Out Burger?

This list is by no means complete, more locations will be added. Oh, and by the way: there is an In-N-Out Burger in North Hollywood, but it's neither on Radford nor on Camrose, it's at 5864 Lankershim Boulevard (pictured). Most of TBL was shot in and around Los Angeles, the City of Angels. Here below are a few more precise locations.

Tumblin’ Tumbleweeds
Pear Blossom
California, US
(the opening shot of the movie, was actually shot at the very end of filming)

The Dude’s House
609 Venezia Avenue
Venice, Los Angeles
California, US
(when visiting, remember: “This is a private residence, man.”)

Hollywood Star Lanes
5227 Santa Monica Boulevard
Hollywood, Los Angeles
California, US
(the bowling alley where the bowling scenes were shot; it has since been torn down)

Dinah’s Original Pancake and Chicken House
6521 South Sepulveda Boulevard
Culver City, Los Angeles
California, US
(the pancake house in which the Nihilists order their lingenberry pancakes and Pigs in a Blanket)

Greystone Park and Mansion
