Santa Anita Park is a prime location for filming since it opened in 1934. The list of movies and television shows using the location range from comedies, dramas, and featured dozens of iconic stars, from Mae West to Johnny Depp. Covering over 360 acres the vast parking lots, beautifully manicured grounds, art deco decor, and picturesque mountain backdrop are a location scouts’ dream. Santa Anita Park offers much more than parking lots and a racetrack. This location also has bars, restaurants, a speakeasy and event spaces that are ideal to film.
