Then & Now: The Homes of John Carpenter’s 1978 Film Halloween

Los Angeles, California, United States

Halloween is right around the corner and classic horror movies are streaming to televisions across North America. One of those classics is the 1978 film Halloween written by John Carpenter & Debra Hill and starring Jamie Lee Curtis in her film debut. The first house, where most of the murders took place, is where Annie (Nancy Loomis) was babysitting Lindsey Wallace. The home is located at 1537 N. Orange Grove Avenue, Los Angeles, California, and just like in the film, it is located right across the street from where Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis) was babysitting Tommy. According to property records, 1537 N. Orange Grove was built in 1962 with a little over 2,600 square feet of space and 5 bedrooms & 3 bathrooms. The home has undergone some fairly drastic changes since the film was released in 1978. A large addition was construction on the left side with a garage added beneath. Directly across the street is where Laurie was babysitting for the night. 1530 N. Orange Grove, Los Angeles, California has remained about the same since the film’s release, with minor updating such as a new front door. Property records show 1530 N. Orange Grove being built in 1920 with a little under 2,400 square feet with 4 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms.
