A Star Is Born Filming Locations

Taking a trip to LA soon? Or interested in where Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga spent their days filming the iconic love story between two musicians in A Star Is Born? Well we have the very thing for you! To celebrate the release of A Star is Born, available on Digital Download now and 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on February 11th, we’re giving you the perfect A Star is Born guide to some of the filming locations… maybe it’s time to book your trip to LA!

The Greek Theatre, LA
Let’s kick start this Star Is Born tour at The Greek Theatre, the location of where Jackson (Bradley Cooper) and Ally (Lady Gaga) first performed ‘Shallow’ on stage together and blew us all away. Filming took place for three days at this outdoor venue, which also involved Lady Gaga’s fans filling the seats to create the audience. But this venue isn’t just for filming; you can go watch various artists from April to September! 

After you’ve sang along to your favourite artist, why not head down to Super A Foods at Glassell Park to grab a late night snack. Or some of you might recognise it as where Jackson wrapped up Ally’s hands with a bag of peas, after she punched someone. This scene was also where Jackson discovered the immense amount of talent Ally possess. 

Empire Polo Club, California
Most of us know this venue as Coachella, an unbelievable music festival near Palm Springs which attracts the rich and famous. During the film, we see a snippet of Ally and Jackson performing at this venue as part of Jackson’s music tour. If you are around on the 12th to 21st of April this year check out this glamourous and sophisticated festival. 

The Regent Theatre, LA
Known as being an Indie concert hall since 1914 with a bar and pizzeria, The Regent Theatre is another venue in Ally and Jacksons love story.  If you like smaller concert venues then this one’s for you, with a capacity of only 700 you can experience an intimate gig. If only Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga could really perform there…

The Virgil, LA
Start your night out where Jackson first met Ally at The Virgil, a cocktail bar which hosts comedy shows and DJ parties. Although you won’t be experiencing a drag bar and Lady Gaga won’t be there singing ‘La Vie en Rose’, you definitely won’t be disappointed! 

The Short Stop, LA
Why not follow Ally and Jacksons footsteps and head over to The Short Stop on Sunset Boulevard where they filmed their first date. Known as a ‘cop bar’ in the film, The Short Stop is best known for its DJ-fuelled dance floor so put you’re dancing shoes on and show America your moves. 

A STAR IS BORN IS OUT NOW ON DIGITAL DOWNLOAD AND COMES TO 4K ULTRA HD, BLU-RAY™ AND DVD FEBRUARY 11TH
