“major filming location”

NOTE: This is a private residence, admire from afar. This is the filming location for Molly Ringwald's house in Sixteen Candles. Much of the 1984 film Sixteen Candles was filmed in and around Evanston, as was Home Alone 3. A number of scenes from the 1986 Garry Marshall film Nothing in Common were filmed on the Northwestern University campus and Evanston's lakeshore. Although not filmed there, the 2004 film Mean Girls is set in the Evanston suburbs, and makes several references to the area. In the 2003 film Cheaper by the Dozen, the family moves to Evanston. Additionally, the baseball movie Rookie of the Year, featuring Gary Busey and Thomas Ian Nicholas, was partially shot at Haven Middle School.
