Disqus for Friday The 13th: The Film Franchise




Friday The 13th Part 3 Filming Locations

Filming Locations:
- Valuzet Movie Ranch (Also known as Melody Ranch Motion Picture Studio): Newhall, CA
- Green Valley Cafe: Santa Clarita, CA

Film production moved to Hollywood for Friday the 13th Part 3. The crew needed a controlled environment that would allow them to carefully set-up the complicated shots needed to produce the 3-D effects for the film and the closed environment of the ranch was perfect for filming the elaborate shots. The Valuzet Movie Ranch and Green Valley Cafe are located in the Green Valley. Much of the film takes place in the cabin and barn location at the Valuzet ranch. The cafe has undergone some cosmetic changes, but the structure remains the same from over 30 years ago. As for the Valuzet Movie Ranch, the cabin burned to the ground in 2006, while the barn still stands today.

This is where Shelly and Vera encounter the biker gang at the market. The market is attached to a restaurant that use to be called Green Valley's Waterhole. Of course, now the "waterhole" was converted to a cafe.

Stacy Lee was generous enough to supply us with some great photos of the location prior to the cabin burning down in 2006. A great big thank you to her for these awesome photos!
