    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
    Wirtten by: Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber
    Cast: Zooey Deschanel, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Clark Gregg, Minka Kelly, Matthew Gray Gubler, Rachel Boston, Geoffrey Arend, Chloe Moritz
    Producers: Jessica Tuchinsky, Mary Waters, Steven Wolfe, Mason Novick

  • 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.

    Release Date: July 17, 2009

500 Days of Summer Walking Tour in LA

I just recieved an email about a 500 Days of Summer Walking Tour, guided by Marty Cummins, key assistant location manager for “(500) Days” and Harry Medved, co-author of the SoCal movie location guidebook, “Hollywood Escapes.”

The tour is free with optional donations benefiting Los Angeles Conservancy, a historic preservation organization (something Tom could get behind.)

Sunday, August 30, 3-6 pm
Meet at Old Bank DVD 400 S. Main Street (at 4th street)
Downtown Los Angeles

The tour’s description from the organizers is listed below! If you decide to head out for the tour let them know you read about it at 500DAYS.com and please, post your photos from the event here!

See firsthand some of the historic locations featured in the hit film “(500) Days of Summer,” and revisit a century of filming in downtown Los Angeles! Join us for a Sunday afternoon walking tour with Marty Cummins, key assistant location manager for “(500) Days” and Harry Medved, co-author of the SoCal movie location guidebook, “Hollywood Escapes.”

In addition to seeing some great examples of historic architecture, we’ll screen the film’s “Bank Heist” music video companion piece, starring Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, shot at downtown’s Farmers & Merchants Bank Building. And we’ll celebrate 100 years of filming in downtown Los Angeles by screening clips of old movies shot in downtown L.A.

There’s no charge, although donations are welcome. Medved will be selling copies of “Hollywood Escapes” before and after the tour, with proceeds going directly to the Conservancy. Bring comfortable walking shoes for the 100 or so steps to the Angels’ Knoll Bench!

500 Days of Summer tour locations include:

Old Bank DVD (video & record store) – starting place

Barclay Hotel (café where Tom’s friends hang out)

Harlem Alley (French black & white fantasy sequence)

Bradbury Building (Tom takes an important meeting)

Angels’ Knoll Bench (Tom’s favorite spot)

Redwood Bar & Grill (Tom & Summer karaoke scene) – final stop, where we’ll hang out over dinner & drinks
