What Television Shows and Films Were Shot in Simi Valley, CA?

The Big Lebowski

The film's infamous spiked White Russian may have been made by Jackie Treehorn in Malibu, but the movie itself was partially filmed in Simi Valley. You don't have to be a brother Seamus to deduce why Simi Valley is such a desirable cinematic spot.


Captain America: The First Avenger

Our most patriotic hero made his leap to the silver screen by way of Simi Valley. The movie brought the 1940s to the 2010s and (with the help of actor Chris Evans) brought Steve Rogers to life as a walking, talking, relatable hero to kids and grandparents alike.



The late, great Tobe Hooper made clowns terrifying for even those brave few who weren't already afraid of them, with this story of Carol Anne Freeling and the various ghosts and ghouls that gravitate toward her. The house where the supernatural mayhem went down is in none other than Simi Valley.


Men In Black

Star Trek isn't the only production to go beyond the earthbound appeal of Simi Valley, as demonstrated by this classic comic adaptation about interstellar G-men.



The Hummingbird Nest Ranch is another Simi Valley location long favored by filmmakers and television directors looking for the perfect natural backdrop to make their fictional worlds align with our real one. The naval crime drama NCIS has shot on the ranch, proof that the best way to solve crimes on the sea is by starting in a valley.
