    Boy meets girl
    Boy falls in love
    Girl doesn't

  • When Tom, a hapless greeting card copywriter and hopeless romantic, is blindsided after his girlfriend summer dumps him, he shifts back and forth through various periods of their 500 days "together" to try to figure out where things went wrong. His reflections ultimately lead him to finally rediscover his true passions in life.

  • Directed by: Marc Webb

  • This post modern love story is never what we expect it to be -- It's thorny yet exhilarating, funny and sad, a twisted journey of highs and lows that doesn't quite go where we think it will.

  4. i was wondering were all this was, i’ll definitely go down there and check it out. downtown LA has so much to do but sometimes you need a little advice-thx

  5. I’m almost positive that the “douchebag scene” was shot at The Edison, and not Broadway Bar.

    Brandon on Jul 26, 2009

  6. I don’t think they used the Edison at all, actually, it has such distinctive lighting. The ceiling is too low in the scene in the movie for it to be the Edison. :)

    To answer the questions on the map, yes, the Civic Center Mall (not called Kenneth Hahn Mall ;)) is where the dancing scene is and yes, Redwood is where the karaoke is.

  7. Thanks Crystal! I’ve updated the map :)

  9. This is great. Yeah I don’t remember Grand Central Market making an appearance in the film either. Where is the coffee shop the guys hang out at?

    Jim on Jul 27, 2009

  10. You’re welcome :) I second the coffee shop/boys hangout question – that’s been bugging me! I’m also trying to figure out where they are eating pancakes in The. Scene. At first I thought OP, but that’s not it…

    Crystal on Jul 27, 2009

  11. Where is the fountain? I’ve never seen a fountain like that and it threw me off from realizing this was shot in LA.

    Shell on Jul 27, 2009

  12. maybe the Grand Central Market scene is a deleted scene. It was probably printed on the map before the final cut.

    Michael T. on Jul 27, 2009

  13. Was the market the street they walk down with all the luggage on sale?

    Hannah on Jul 27, 2009

  18. Shell – it’s just east of Grand Avenue at the music center, it’s just below street level in the sunken Civic Center Mall, so you have to go down to really see it . If you’re on Grand looking at the Music Center your back to is to the fountain. :)

    Crystal on Jul 28, 2009

  19. Map obsessed lately, so I’ll def check out these landmarks from fave (500) Days of Summer when I’m in L.A. in Aug: http://tinyurl.com/nufwbm

  21. don’t forget about the wedding scene – which looked like it was shot at the Point Fermin Lighthouse in San Pedro

    Harry Medved on Jul 29, 2009

  22. Harry, you’re right, it was shot there. I recognized it as soon as I saw it.

  25. [...] love with it, and I had also just discovered that I was going to be attending Adobe MAX. There is a walking tour on Google Maps that I plan to use as a resource. It’s great because I’ll be staying at the Sheraton [...]

  26. Sadly the biys coffee bar hangout scene was just a set, not a functioning location, the coffee shop (pancakes) is also a set and has been used in many other films.

    Heather on Dec 20, 2009

  27. I can’t believe the entire movie takes place within a one mile radius of my school. Angel’s Knoll is down the street and the music center is across the street. The movie makes Downtown look so much nicer than in person.

    Jenny on Jan 23, 2010

  28. why the heck is ANYBODY obsessed with this crap movie? there is absolutely nothing special about 500 days of summer. Not a single scene is original or unique in any way. this is a perfect example of just how stupid this generation of American pop culture driven morons is. some person said this movie was good and all else simple had to agree because if to disagree is to go against the stream of bull driving this country. 500 days of summer sucks. the fact that some of you losers will take an attack of this movie as an attack on you and that a select few will go out of their way to try and explain why I am wrong only backs my argument. Seriously, 500 days of summer?
