Video Visits MSTed Movie Locations

So, there’s a guy named Adam Marsland who does a YouTube travel show called “Adam Walks Around.” I only know about it (not being a major YT person) because he alerted me to the topic of his 40th episode: locations used in MST3K movies.

I hesitate to single out every MST3K related thing on YouTube because I don’t ever want to get into one of those “you highlighted his thing but you won’t highlight my thing” situations. But I sat down and watched the episode and I was more and more entertained and impressed … and informed. We all know about Bronson Canyon, of course, and he visits there, but he takes us to other places that I didn’t know were findable, and even admits when he says he’s at a spot and later figures out he was probably about 100 yards away.

All in all it amounted to something I thought MSTies might like and learn from, and that’s what this site is about. So I’m making an exception and pointing you to something on YouTube. Enjoy!

    It’s good to see a MST3K fan work up a project like this. I particularly enjoyed seeing how these locations have and haven’t changed after many years.

    I also really liked that Adam thanked THE TEACHERS OF AMERICA. Those folks have it tough these days. Thanks, Teachers.

    I made a video ten years ago where I drove to the former site of Best Brains. Not much, but I had never actually done it before.

    Thank you for sharing this video.

    It was especially touching when Adam Marsland interviewed the grown children of a couple of the featured actors in MST3K films.

    JELVIS was funny, too.

    Now, this was fun! The best part was seeing the son of the actress who played the short-lived Renee in The Dead Talk Back (“Don’t rot away, Renee . . .”), hearing about her career, and that she really liked the MST-ied version. Loved seeing what some of the sites used in our favorite episodes look like now, in “real life”. Seeing the real Coleman Francis Mountain was a moving experience . . .

    A few years ago, we took a trip to Rutland, VT to find Time Chasers and Radical Jack locations. I posted some photos here:

  7. This show was a lot of fun. I was disappointed, though, about the segment on Track of the Moon Beast. I am familiar with several of the film locations, including the hospital entrance where Paul escapes on the motorcycle (I know that too well – went through it several times when my wife’s mother was there), the pawn/gun shop (Nob Hill area on Central Avenue), one outdoor shot on the University of New Mexico campus, and old Route 66 east of town. At least they got the stew ingredients correct – chicken, corn, green peppers, chile…. (sigh) …. onions ….. after all, it is an old recipe around here.
