ROSEMARY'S BABY FILMING LOCATIONS
This 1968 horror/thriller film written and directed by Roman Polanski, is based on the bestselling novel with the same name. Strange, unpleasant things seem to keep happening around Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse after moving into a new apartment in a building with a bad reputation. Among other odd happenings, Rosemary’s husband seems to be enchanted with their neighbors, an elderly couple. He becomes increasingly distant, spending more and more time with them. After a nightmare in which a horrible creature makes love to her, Rosemary finds herself pregnant, and suspects that the creepy old couple has special plans for her expected child.
Mia Farrow, who stars as Rosemary, has starred in many films, such as A Midsummer Night’s Sex Comedy, Broadway Danny Rose, The Purple Rose of Cairo, Hannah and Her Sisters, Radio Days, New York Stories, and Husbands and Wives. She is also known for movies like The Great Gatsby, The Omen, and Be Kind Rewind.
When you go on the Central Park TV & Movie Sites Tour or the TCM Classic Film Tour you’ll see the famous Dakota building where Rosemary and Guy live in the movie. This building was also used for the filming of Hannah and Her Sisters. The Dakota was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972 and was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1976. John Lennon, who owned apartments in the building with his wife Yoko Ono, was killed right outside its entrance in 1980.
This iconic New York City Building and so many other great filming locations are included on the unique and fun NYC bus tour.
