The Shining


  1. Wow, thank you so much man! I was searching for these places for so long... I was not really active in my research but I was not able to find any places! The Sixth Sense is one of the films I've seen the most in my childhood, so it means a lot to me.
    I was only searching for the street (st albans) and the church... but you have found almost all the places, even the restaurant or the mall! I hope to make this little movie-trip in Philadelphia soon!

    Thank you again.

  2. Just in case you're still looking for the kids’ party location, it's 2408 Pine Street. I used to live a block from there and remember them filming. Apparently the house is currently for sale!

  3. thank you for this feature about my beloved city Philadelphia. The Sixth Sense was a really cool movie.

    1. I love you for doing this you have no idea! My goal is to go to all my favourite movie locations!

  4. BTW...Society Hill is not west of Broad St. where St. Albans and 20th and Delancey are located (Rittenhouse Square neighborhood). Society Hill is located east of Broad St. beginning at 8th St. i.e. 6th and Delancey, or the i.m.Pei designed Society Hill Towers at 2nd and Dock St.

  5. It is the rignt side of the building. The houenumber is 2410 . You can see the different entrance on Google maps. The copper rain-pipe (I don't know the right word) is to the left on 2408 but to the right on 2410 (and not visible in the movie-shot). Same building so not a big difference, just nice to know. Best wishes from Reykjavík, Iceland.

  6. Just watched this movie again this year. I actually live in Philly and was excited to recognize my own residence at 21st & Green Street in Fairmount! Cole & the Doc walk up Green and stand on the corner at 21st Street where a group of children walk by.
    Also, the interior shots of the Doctor’s home were taken in the Bergdorf Mansion at 22nd & Green!
