South Pasadena is situated to the east of downtown Los Angeles at the western end of the San Gabriel Valley. It is a popular filming location due to its ‘anywhere in America’ appearance as it lacks the distinctly Spanish flavour of many other cities around Los Angeles with their palm trees and stucco style Spanish residences. The streets feature many species of native Californian trees such as redwood, walnut, sycamore, ash and sequoia.
One of the last remaining single screen theatres in the country is the Rialto Theatre, situated in South Pasadena. It is now on the National Register of Historic Places after narrowly avoiding demolition in 1978. Unfortunately it has now closed down due to low profits.

The Tiger Run is an annual 5K or 10K run around South Pasadena that caters for pretty much all types, ages and abilities of runners. There is even a wheel chair section.
