Atlas of Albuquerque Filming Locations

Link to Top-Level Map






[First posted September 2, 2018. Last updated January 15, 2020.]

Here is the entrance page for my newest project, an "Atlas of Albuquerque Filming Locations." My emphasis at the moment is noting easy-to-identify filming locations, leaving the harder ones for later.

Since New Mexico's famous tax credit went into effect in the 1990s (which lowered costs for film crews), filming has proliferated throughout the state. Many projects have filmed in the vicinity of Albuquerque. There have been some summaries published regarding these film projects, but there is a need to map filming locations, for a more geographic approach. That's what I hope to do here.

My first task has been to quickly scan a whole bunch of films that have little to do with each other except for having been filmed in the Albuquerque area. I have an ability - one of my few real talents - to associate random images obtained in the Albuquerque area with their physical locations. Over the last eight years, I have used that ability to explore the "Breaking Bad" universe in depth. Most of the locations listed here will be determined by carefully inspecting images from the films, and not relying on any other knowledge about the films.

At least at this stage, I will concentrate on Albuquerque and points west, north, and south, avoiding the many movies (mostly Westerns) that have been filmed east of the Sandia Mountains, near and around the Eaves Movie Ranch, Bonanza Creek Ranch, and Cerro Pelon Ranch, south of Santa Fe. Since I'm generally unfamiliar with areas east of the Sandia Mountains, movies filmed out there will generally be passed over. Maybe later, when this project matures, I'll add some of these movies.

At this stage, I will present addresses of private residences (but will withhold addresses upon request).

I cribbed most of the movie summaries from the Albuquerque Public Library's excellent summary of Albuquerque filming projects.

I welcome any input on this project, particularly additions, corrections, tips, or other knowledge. (Send information to Marc Valdez at valdezmarc56@gmail.com)

Title links are given below. Links that are not yet operative are in italics.

"Breaking Bad" and "Better Call Saul" filming-location links are listed in the blog sidebar.

This comprehensive database of currently-available NM filming locations is also very useful.

-----------------

But first, a number of movies listed on imdb.com as having been filmed in the Albuquerque area display no such filming locations when examined more carefully. I'm not sure why this bum information exists. I suspect one or more people want to inflate the importance of Albuquerque cinema beyond its actual size.


Movies That Appear Not To Have Been Filmed in the Albuquerque Area

Disaster Movie (2008) - The movie seems to have been filmed instead in Louisiana.
Five-O (2016) - There are no filming locations in this movie in New Mexico.
The Fortune (1975) - There is no indication that portions of this movie were filmed in the Albuquerque area. The airstrip building looks Pueblo-stylish, but the mountains in the distance are not from the Albuquerque area.
Human Desire (1954) - There's apparently an error in imdb.com's data. None of the station-arrival scenes are from Albuquerque.
The Men Who Stare at Goats (2009) - I couldn't identify any Albuquerque-area filming locations.
The Muppet Movie (1979) - I couldn't identify any Albuquerque-area filming locations.
The Natural: The Best There Ever Was (2016) - I see no indication this movie was filmed in Albuquerque.
Private Lessons (1981) - A quick scan indicates no ABQ sites are present in this movie (although a Wikipedia article on "Private Lessons" suggests it's possible some incidental footage from NM is in the film).
Punk Band (2018) - There is no sign that this movie was filmed in the Albuquerque area. (I recognize Tucson, though.)
Twelve Strong (2015) - Portions of this film are said to have been filmed in the Socorro area, and I was hoping to tease them out, but have not succeeded as yet.
Voice of the Unknown: A Paranormal Investigation (2011) - Appears to have been filmed entirely in central Texas.
Walkout (2006 TV Movie) - There are no signs this movie was filmed in Albuquerque.
Wisdom (1986) - There are no indications of Albuquerque filming locations in this movie.
With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story (2010) - No indication in the credits that the movie was filmed in New Mexico. Apart from footage of an atomic explosion, possibly the Trinity shot, there is no sign of it being filmed in New Mexico.



There are also other movies that barely touch the Albuquerque area.


Movies That Appear To Have Only Glancing Contact With The Albuquerque Area

Death Hunt (1981) - According to the end credits, the portion of this movie filmed in New Mexico's Cibola National Forest is confined to the Main Title.
The Half-Life of Genius Physicist Raemer Schreiber (2017) - There are many views of Los Alamos. Interestingly, there don't seem to be any Albuquerque locations here.
House of Flying Squirrels (2013) - This movie may have been filmed in Albuquerque, but the use of stock imagery makes it impossible to tell.
How We Met (2016) - The credits indicate Albuquerque is a filming location, probably Lozoya Studios, 1205 Broadway Blvd SE, but which scenes were filmed there, I can't tell.
Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) - Apart from a background displaying the Sandia and Manzano Mountains, I couldn't identify any Albuquerque-area filming locations.
The Long Ride Home: Run for the Wall (2007 Video) - This documentary features various scenes on I-40 from Needles to Albuquerque, but remarkably few bits from Albuquerque itself - close to none. In New Mexico, three sites stand out: Red Rock Park near Gallup; Route 66 Casino parking lot at the Rio Puerco; and Raton, NM - Rio Grande Ave. & S. 2nd St.
Memoirs of an Invisible Man (1992) - According to imdb, 522 Lomas Blvd. NE, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA is a filming location, as well as locations in Las Vegas, NM. I don't think that's correct, though.
Monstroid (1980) - There are some indications that they filmed out near Espanola somewhere, but no obvious indications of Albuquerque filming locations.
New Mexico (1951) - Parts of the movie were filmed near Gallup. There seem to be no Albuquerque locations in this film.
Split Estate (2009) - Albuquerque has only a peripheral role in this documentary - folks at KNME TV-5 had a hand in the film. Colorado is the primary center of gravity, and northwestern New Mexico.
Trinity and Beyond: The Atomic Bomb Movie (1995 Video) - Very interesting movie about U.S. nuclear testing. NM sites include: Los Alamos, Trinity Site, the pre-Trinity 100 Ton Test site, the rocket sled test, and a view of Sandia Base, ABQ (35.052620°, -106.550355°)
Two Days in April (2007) - There are two sites in the film from Roswell: Immanuel Church of God in Christ, 1002 North Union Ave., and Hampton Inn & Suites Roswell, 3607 N Main St. There is archival footage of Moore playing for UNM, probably in UNM's Football Arena, but otherwise, there seem to be no Albuquerque filming locations.



In addition, there are some movies that I have not examined closely that I suspect haven't been filmed at all in the Albuquerque area.

Movies That I Suspect Have Not Been Filmed in the Albuquerque Area Despite Being So Listed on imdb.com

Fleisch (1979) - I see plenty of Las Cruces locations, but no Albuquerque locations.
La Trinchera Luminosa del President Gonzalo (2007) - This movie is filmed in Peru about Peruvian subjects. I don't anticipate that Albuquerque is involved in any way.
Showdown (1973) - Filmed in northern New Mexico. Unclear if movie's filming locations were far enough south to reach Albuquerque.
