La La Land and Hermosa Beach
I just crossed another one off my list of locations used in the film "La La Land." The Lighthouse Cafe is a real place, near the Hermosa Beach Pier. It really looks about the same from what you see in the movie.
What you see though is the back of the location; here's what the front looks like:
And here's the Pier as seen in the movie:
I think I'll take fantasy...and not just because Ryan Gosling is in the shot. I have read that the city is considering putting vintage lights on the pier to make it look more like the movie. That would definitely be an improvement as the pier looks fairly sterile in its every day incarnation.
