Rebel Without a Cause: Film Location Update

James Dean dragged into Police Station
I recently took some new photos for another Rebel Without a Cause film location. This time I got the Police Station which can be seen at the beginning of the film when James Dean is being dragged by two cops. See the screenshot above.
The Police Station was actually a facade located on the the Midwestern Street of the Warner Bros. Studios backlot. Below is a photo showing how the same facade appears today.

If you look closely you can see that the facade is now being dressed to look like a high school, more specifically, "Eastwick High School," for the upcoming TV Show, Eastwick, airing this Fall on ABC.

The Police Station is now Eastwick High School

Rob, awesome post, as per usual. I think the more Hollywood changes and, unfortunately, productions move away from the town, the more important your blog will be to remind people of how it used to be.
