Going back to Santa Carla
Back in 1987 this little movie came out by the name of “The Lost Boys.” Yeah, I didn’t think you’d heard of it. Netflix it, you’ll like it. This little gem was shot, in part, in Santa Cruz (re-named Santa Carla in the film). After re-watching this classic 80’s film I decided to check out some of the spots where filming took place and see what they looked like today. The following are stills from the film and what it looks like today. For the most part they look the same except for the comic shop (Atlantis Fantasyworld) which had to relocate after the '89 Loma Prieta quake. Enjoy!
