🎥 Home Alone (1990)
Winnetka is a suburban area about 20 miles from Chicago. It is also where Kevin Mccallister lives, the kid from the beloved Christmas classic movie Home Alone, played by @culkamania .
It was one of my top priorities when i decided to star this movie location thing and I was happy to see the house is pretty much the same today. It had a bunch of different owners over the years (at one time it was sold for 1585 million dollars) and the latest remodeling put a fence in front of it. Probably to keep away creeps like me.
This is unusual in movies but even the interiors were shot in this very house. Only the scary basement was a sound stage.
I visited it last October so unfortunately i couldn’t see it covered in snow and Christmas lights like in the movie. Instead, there’s yellow leafs and Halloween decorations. This is a very fancy street with big wealthy houses and it looked gorgeous this time of the year. It was also one of those easy locations to find. Google Maps has it labeled as “Home Alone house” so it isn’t hard to miss. They didn’t even hide its real address in the movie!
This holiday season, when you catch it (again) on television, pay attention when he speaks with that smoking Santa Claus and asks his family back.
