The Lost Boys is a 1987 American teen comedy horror film directed by Joel Schumacher and starring Jason Patric, Corey Haim, Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz, Corey Feldman, Dianne Wiest, Edward Herrmann, Alex Winter, Jamison Newlander, and Barnard Hughes.
The film is about two Arizonan brothers who move to California and end up fighting a gang of teenage vampires.
The majority of the film was shot in the city of Santa Cruz, California, and the surrounding Santa Cruz Mountains. The amusement park scenes were filmed at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.
The interior of the house was all shot on sets built on Stage 15 at Warner Brother's Studios in Burbank, California.
At the end of the boardwalk there is a very small railroad bridge. A lot of Lost Boys fans believe this to be the bridge that they hang off of in the film but that is incorrect. The bridge they actually used is over 300 miles away in the city of Valencia, California. Just off of the 5 Freeway at Magic Mountain Parkway and only a few hundred feet away from the exit stands the old railroad bridge.
The cave is over 350 miles away in Palos Verdes, California. This is actually the former location of California's very first theme park called Marineland.
The interior of the cave in the film was all a set built on Stage 12 at the Warner Brother's lot in Burbank.
