The City of San Dimas has approved an agreement with FilmL.A. establishing the not-for-profit as the film permit coordinator for the area.  FilmL.A. will now accept applications for permits to film within the San Dimas city limits.

Located twenty-five minutes east of Los Angeles in the heart of the San Gabriel Valley, San Dimas is known for its blend of community amenities, wonderful parks and open spaces.

The fifteen-square-mile city is home to the San Dimas Train Depot, (also known as Pacific Railroad Society) and Frank G. Bonelli Regional Park, a popular venue for concerts and special events.

Historic Downtown San Dimas is filled with family owned restaurants, antique stores, a hometown hardware store and one of the region’s premier model railroad stores.

The Plumber Building, the original City Hall location for San Dimas, features a community plaza that was expanded and remodeled in 2011 and is now a popular venue for community events.

There are dozens of historic buildings in the Downtown area, but perhaps none more beautiful than the recently restored Walker House.  Built in 1887, Walker House is home to the San Dimas Historical Society, Festival of Arts, an art gallery, and a restaurant.

“FilmL.A. is honored to represent a city as unique as San Dimas”, said Donna Washington, Vice President of Operations for FilmL.A. “The City is home to historic Walker House, Martin House and Downtown.  It’s  sprawling parks and mountain views that make San Dimas a prime location for the film and television industry,” Washington said.

A selection of publicly-owned San Dimas properties can be found on FilmL.A.’s online location library, LocoScout (
