Quiet on the Set! Conejo Valley is a Hot Spot for Filming Movies

When you come to Conejo Valley, don’t be surprised if you spot film crews around town. Because of its picturesque scenery, open spaces and proximity to L.A., Conejo Valley has been an ideal place for movie-making since the 1920s.

The Conejo Valley’s film history is a little-known but fascinating attraction. While you’re here, take a drive around and see if you recognize any of the scenery! Here are a few popular local film spots and some of the movies that have been set there.

Westlake Village

This affluent L.A. suburb has been the backdrop of a number of films both past and present, from the 1920s version of Robin Hood to Karate Kid in 1984. More recently, the prom night scene in American Pie was filmed at a local residence, and the engagement party in Bridesmaids took place at the Sherwood Country Club in Westlake Village.

Hidden Valley

The pastoral, country vibe of this off-the-beaten path area of Conejo Valley is a favorite among filmmakers. While it’s close to L.A., it is beautifully secluded and home to numerous equestrian ranches and wide-open acreage. Roadhouse (starring the late Patrick Swayze) and Seabiscuit were filmed here, among many others.

Agoura Hills

Home to Paramount Picture’s Paramount Ranch, which began operating as a film set in 1923, Agoura Hills has a storied past when it comes to films. The opening scene for Gone with the Wind was filmed in Agoura Hills, and the old Western Town film set at Paramount Ranch has been the location for hundreds of movies, including The Lake House starring Sandra Bullock.

Thousand Oaks

With well-manicured parks, pretty street views and homes of all sizes, Thousand Oaks has a rich film history, having been the set of hundreds of films over the years. In recent history, the best-known movies set in Thousand Oaks are The Adventures of Robin Hood, Memoirs of a Geisha and Tarzan.

Unsinkable Exhibit Comes to Conejo Valley

The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum is a must-see attraction when coming to Conejo Valley. But did you know that the library and museum hosts some exclusive exhibits throughout the year? It’s true, and the latest exhibit to grace the Reagan Library is of titanic proportions.

Titanic at the Reagan Library is a brand-new, never before seen exhibition spanning 10,000 square feet of the museum. The exhibit reunites hundreds of Titanic artifacts that have not been together since the ship’s fateful night in 1912. Titanic at the Reagan Library honors the 1,500 souls who perished in the tragedy, along with the 267 brave American seaman who perished on the Thresher and Scorpion.

Holding the exhibit at the Reagan Library is the perfect combination. President Reagan was instrumental in preserving the historic site of the Titanic by issuing the 1986 RMS Titanic Memorial Act to designate the wreck as an international maritime memorial. With President Reagan’s historic act for the Titanic site, it is important to note that the exhibit tells the complete story of the Titanic without using any artifacts off the ocean floor. This historic collection of real artifacts from the Titanic combines real stories with real artifacts from real people onboard the ship.

In addition to the real artifacts from the ship, the exhibit also includes props, sets and costumes from the blockbuster movie “Titanic”. Museum goers will be able to see a full-size life boat from the movie and the set of Rose and Cal’s Suite. It is truly a one of a kind display of history. You won’t be able to catch this exhibit anywhere else but at the Reagan Library!

The historic exhibit is open at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum and will conclude on January 8, 2018. For additional information on the exhibit, please visit www.reaganlibrary.com.
