Hello fellow readers of Kip's American Graffiti Blog! As I continue on my quest to bring you rare info and artifacts, I stumbled upon this little jem of an article in the San Francsico Chronicle archives. Although most of Graffiti was filmed in Petaluma the sock hop scenes were filmed in the boys gym at Tamalpais High School, 700 Miller Avenue, Mill Valley, CA. on August 1, 1972. Director, George Lucas and company filmed all the sequences at the gym in one full day. However the bathroom scenes and high school exteriors were filmed at Petaluma High School. To learn more about filming keeping reading, Sam!
