The Haunting (1999) set pieces still in Orange County, CA

Orange County, CA is a beautiful place, but it also has areas that have been used in dozens of movies and TV shows. Sometimes the locations are visible as you drive by or walk by, others can be in the strangest of places - like an architecture firm.

In, 1999 Jan De Bont (The director of Speed and Twister), directed The Haunting, starring Liam Neeson, Catherine Zeta Jones, Owen Wilson, Virginia Madsen and others. Here is the trailer:

After the film had wrapped, portions of the sets were relocated to Orange County, CA. Read on:

"Speaking of "THE HAUNTING," you can see its gothic sets in a rather unlikely place today: the offices of an architecture firm, Bastien and Associates offices in Orange County, at 2961 Edinger Ave, in Tustin, CA. They bought the elaborate movie sets (for the Grand Hallway and Cleo's Bedroom) from DreamWorks and installed them in their office building! If you'd like to see them, the sets are visible when you first walk in. Link to Map of Location" Taken from
