A Thin Line Between Love and Hate Filming Locations
The film gets its title from the eponymous 1971 song by The Persuaders. The production on ‘A Thin Line Between Love and Hate’ commenced on June 5, 1995, and wrapped up on August 11, 1995. Let us take a look at where it was filmed.
Los Angeles, California
‘A Thin Line Between Love and Hate’ was filmed entirely in Los Angeles, California. The city is perfectly situated amid a wide range of geographical features such as the ocean, desert, and hills. There is no doubt that L.A. is the ultimate location for filming with its gorgeous sunsets and the bustling downtown. The most recognizable landmarks of the city include the Hollywood Sign, Hollywood Bowl, Dodger Stadium, and Bradbury Building.
One of the important landmarks that served as a filming location for this movie was the Los Angeles City Hall. It is located at 200 North Spring Street and is 454 feet high with 32 floors. The building designed by John Parkinson, John C. Austin, and Albert C. Martin, Sr., completed construction in 1928.
The city is also home to the “Big Five” studios – Universal Pictures, Paramount Pictures, Warner Bros. Pictures, Walt Disney Pictures, and Columbia Pictures. These are also the biggest, some of the oldest and best-equipped studios in the world. Some of the iconic productions that were filmed in L.A. are ‘Die Hard,’ ‘Grease,’ ‘La La Land,’ and ‘Back to the Future.’
The economy of Los Angeles is driven by the entertainment and fashion industry, earning it the reputation for being the “Creative Capital of the World.” This is not surprising since, reportedly, one in six residents work in the creative industry. Los Angeles sets the historical record to be the city to have the highest number of filmmakers, actors, musicians, writers, and other artists.
