Parental Guidance Filming Locations

We’re not Hollywood yet, but Alpharetta is slowly starting to attract filmmakers to the area. This past fall actors Billy Crystal and Bette Midler were in town to film scenes for a movie called Parental Guidance. This is the biggest movie filmed in Alpharetta since the 2009 film The Joneses staring Demi Moore and David Duchovny.

Crystal and Midler play grandparents who must watch their grandkids while their daughter (Marisa Tomei) goes on vacation. Hilarity ensues as they deal with the generation gap. The movie should be in theaters later this year.

The filming crew set up a base in Dunwoody while filming in Atlanta and north Fulton. Here’s a rundown of Alpharetta-area filming locations.

165 Pebble Trail

This ranch-style home near downtown Alpharetta was commandeered by the production company for two full days of filming. On-screen this will be Billy Crystal and Bette Midler’s home in Fresno, California. Look for mostly interior shots.

The owners of the home currently have it listed for sale. Of course a big part of the listing hypes the movie. It is reminiscent of a home in south Forsyth that sold after The Joneses was released in theaters. That home was used by Demi Moore during filming, a fact that no doubt influenced the sale of the property.

The Country Club of Roswell

Marisa Tomei was featured during scenes filmed here. They used the club’s ballroom and golf course. Look for country club staff and members as extras during these scenes.

Ocee Park

Little league scenes were filmed in this Johns Creek park. Skateboard legend Tony Hawk plays himself during scenes filmed here.

Independence High School

Filming occurred at the former Milton High School in downtown Alpharetta. No additional details are available.
