I recently had a conversation with someone about the movie industry in Georgia. I was surprised to learn that he wasn’t aware of The Joneses and its filming locations in and near Alpharetta. The movie has been released to DVD and is showing on cable television quite a lot now. I thought I would write in more detail about the filming locations and other interesting tidbits surrounding stars Demi Moore and David Duchovny. It’s worth noting that some filming took place in Spokane, Washington which I won’t cover. Also check out my review of the film.

The Manor Golf & Country Club
The fictions family lives in a home in this upscale Milton neighborhood. Scenes from inside the home were in the house itself, not a studio. There are also several scenes within the Manor neighborhood.
Muse Salon and Spa
Located on Kimball Bridge Road in Alpharetta, this upscale salon was where Demi Moore’s character is seen early in the movie. Muse staff get some decent time in front of the camera. But more than that, Muse got a ton of publicity while filming took place.
Atlanta National Golf Club
David Duchovny’s character hits the links a lot in the movie while peddling his upscale products. Atlanta National is one of the courses he picks (another is in Spokane). Watch for the beautiful clubhouse.
I didn’t place it at first, but there is a scene late in the movie where they are dining in a very nice, candle-lit restaurant. Pampas on State Bridge Road is that restaurant.
Calton J. Kell High School – Marietta
Not exactly in the Alpharetta but it’s still somewhat local. All high school scenes were shot at this school in Marietta.
…Specifically the intersection of Milton Avenue and Canton Street. I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but there is a car crash filmed at this intersection. You can clearly see The Corner Deli in the background after the cars come to rest. I asked Mel Siegel about the movie and he told me they spent the better part of a day getting the scene just right. He said they kept the restaurant open late to feed those involved with the movie.
Demi Moore’s Rental Home
During the filming of The Joneses, Demi Moore rented an entire house to live in. The home is located just off McGinnis Ferry Road. It was listed for sale and sold around the same time the movie hit theaters. The listing agent certainly played up the Demi Moore aspect of the home as you can see in this webpage. No filming took place at this location.
Real Housewives Making Cameos
How fitting is this? Shereé Whitfield and Kim Zolciak of Real Housewives of Atlanta both make brief cameos in the movie. Zolciak is pretty easy to spot during a house party standing next to David Duchovny.
