‘Lights, camera, action’: Here’s a look at movies filmed in Sacramento

The Warner Brothers production concluded filming Sacramento at the end of February.

Yolanda’s Tamales was one of the local businesses that contributed to the film by providing catering services, officials said. According to an Instagram post from the business, Yolanda’s Tamales fed the movie’s cast and crew eight times in a few weeks.

“Hosting a production of this caliber not only brings Hollywood stars to our city but also generates substantial economic benefits for our local businesses and workforce,” Sacramento Film Commissioner Jennifer West said in a statement.

There were sightings of DiCaprio, singer-actress Teyana Taylor and director Paul Thomas Anderson when production began in Sacramento on Feb. 3. The trio were spotted shooting a scene near the Sacramento County Administration Building and Sacramento Superior Courthouse on H and 8th streets.

Scenes were also shot near I and 6th streets in downtown Sacramento and at an East Sacramento house where Ronald and Nancy Reagan lived when the former was the state’s governor.

Sacramento’s connection to the earliest motion picture

The Sacramento Fire Department was also on standby with special effects coordinators while crews were filming a simulated explosion in downtown Sacramento streets.

Warner Bros. filmed scenes in Eureka before crews made their way down to Sacramento. Scenes were also filmed in Galt and Stockton.

According to the city’s film office, 15 film permits have been issued in 2024. Despite the 2023 union strikes in the film industry, officials said the film office issued 73 permits for 161 days of shooting, resulting in 411 local hires, 836 hotel nights and generating $2 million for the local economy.

The city’s film and media office said it is working to bring more film crews for independent films, commercials and television projects to the region by creating a $250,000 film and media rebate program.
