Everette L. Williams Elementary School

Georgetown's Everette Williams Elementary School—still open and still an elementary school—proved the perfect setting for Slater's rambling back in the day(zed).

Top Notch Hamburgers

Copy Link

Aside from the moonlight tower (not an actual moontower, but we'll get to that later), the Top Notch is easily the most recognized location in the film.

El Mercado

Copy Link

Okay, this one's a stretch, but a fan swears the liquor-store owner character goes to El Mercado more than once in the film (there is one on Burnet, so we're going with it).

Baseball Game

Copy Link

The baseball game Mitch pitches as only part of his epic day was filmed at what was colloquially known as "Northwest Field" and is formally known as Beverly S. Sheffield Northwest District Park.

Mitch Kramer's house

Mitch ends his epic day at home, deep under the 'phones, as it should be.

Carl Burnett's house

The Emporium

Copy Link

Both the interiors exteriors of The Emporium pool hall were shot at a spot in what was then a strip mall called Violet Crown Shopping Center. It's been gussied up a bit and is now home to Stiles Switch BBQ and other small local businesses.

Rick's Auto Machine Shop

Copy Link

The warehouse/shop where O'Bannion gets his payback paint bath looks pretty much the same as it did in 1993.

Kevin Pickford's house

Copy Link

Kevin Pickford, looking rather sheepish after his parents came home early and ruined his planned graduation party.

West Enfield Park

Copy Link

As most of us know now, there were no actual moonlight towers used in the film (though there are plenty in Austin). But this central-city park is where the "party at the moon tower" was shot.

Toney Burger Center

Copy Link

The field where Pink comes to terms with his dilemma and utters the great line, “If I ever start referring to these as the best years of my life, remind me to kill myself.”
