By the way, one of those postings in the other thread that Sue listed is about the Halfway House Cafe, where Journey to the End of the Knight (ep. 2) was filmed.

Here's a clip from the show:

I didn't want to go crazy cause I still really want to see Mike's pics. I still can't believe he rode a bike up there.

The one exception might be the long distance shot they used in "Knight to King's Pawn" (when Billy, Zoe, and Mike were trying to break back into the abandoned SSC through a secret entrance). To get such a vast space of field, they'd have to have used the top hangar. The bottom hangar is surrounded on 2 1/2 sides by commercial and industrial zones. The top hangar, if viewed from the Northwest, has a 3/4 mile span of field before you'd see a road.

I mentioned this a few months ago about the hangars being in Tustin/Irvine, CA. If you scrolled down on the Google Map, you'd see The District Shopping Center.

So remember: every time you see Michael and KITT dashing out of the SSC, they're driving towards Costco. :D


I was watching Knight in Shining Armor and noticed that in the shot of KITT driving into the doors, you can see what looks like a red-and-white control tower off to the right side. If you look at the google pics, including one from the streetview on the highway, it's the top hangar.

Now, reviewing Knight to King's Pawn, when Mike, Billy and Zoe are breaking back into the SSC, that's obviously done with a greenscreen. It's a REALLy wide shot and there's only ONE hangar there, and it has no little red-and-white control tower in front. Looks like more MKVX handywork!

I was going through every show, getting the screenshots of the Hangar views, (haven't finished yet though) and the Hangar with the Tower is definitely the one used for the in/out shots (that's the top one).
I'm still looking for a view of the "abandoned SSC" on the real hangar images. I figure they took a shot of the back of one of the hangars (where you can't see the other and/or the tower) and you see the hazy mountain range in the background.

I had a hunch in in another thread but just got confirmation that the funeral at the end was shot at Disney's Golden Oak Ranch.

Another Location is Piru, California.

Elmar collected a good list of locations from the Back door pilot and mentioned Piru. Here's his list copied from the aformentioned thread.

The Templin Highway I have always assumed, but have never confirmed, was the road in TOS The Rotten Apples

Sue thanks for pasting the locations from the pilot in this thread.

There's one location I'm looking for - the ending of Knight of the Hunter, which was supposedly the "Federal Reserve Bank of Phoenix" - by the way, Phoenix does NOT have a Federal Reserve Bank. The Fed. Reserve Bank of San Francisco services Arizona.

Here are two screenshots, one of the building's fascade, and it should be noted that there is a 2-3 level garage to the left of the building when looking at it from this angle. The second one is a shot of KI3T coming into the parking lot, and the building number is visible (circled in red) - 28515. Any ideas? I've been looking around the Santa Clarita area since KR08 did a lot of filming in that area, but came up empty handed so far.

Sue, I think you found it! The google maps and Bing photos are of the building still under construction, but I found this picture in the page you gave the linked to:

Sue, didn't you get that exclusive quickie interview with GST on the set of what was supposed to be Episode 17 (Exit Light, Enter Knight - the bank robbery episode)? What was the location of the bank?

Sue, never mind. I found it. :-)

The "bank" where they filmed Exit Light Enter Knight (filmed as Ep. 117 but aired as Ep. 13) is located at the corner of W. 5th Street and S. Boylston Street, Los Angeles, just over the 110. Google maps doesn't have street view of the exact corner, but this Bing Maps ariel/bird's eye view shows the park where Mike gets coffee, the bank building, and I've marked a few other places where items (like the 1st police car to arrive) were placed.

Sue, since I'm assuming you were there to catch all that behind the scenes footage, is that the correct location?

Oh, Sorry I missed this thread. Your map is correct. The bank was filmed at LA Center Studios.
