Where was Sabrina filmed? The House and the Greendale Town Filming Locations

Posted by

Set in the fictional town of Greendale, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was filmed in and around Vancouver in British Columbia. The TV series is based upon the Archie comic book of the same name.

The teenage witch, who lives in the haunted Spellman Sisters Mortuary house, tries to balance a normal life between her dual nature, half-mortal, half-witch, whilst battling against the dark forces that are haunting her town.

Kiernan Shipka actress Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

From the producers of Riverdale, Sabrina is happening in the same universe as the popular The CW show, so fans were expecting to see crossovers between characters and storylines.

Kiernan Shipka (Sally from Mad Men and the star of the 2019 Christmas movie Let it snow), leads the cast of the new Netflix series.

Here is our bewitched guide to the filming locations of the show:

Cerberus Books set
The Cerberus Books is Sabrina's troupe favorite hang, the equivalent to Pop's Chock'lit Shoppe in Riverdale.

This peculiar coffee shop was filmed in Cloverdale (to the east of the city of Surrey), in a building that was formerly Dann’s Electronics and Bowerbird Stop Antiques.

Also, on the same street, the Cloverdale Learning Centre was transformed into Drew's Jams Preserves.

Sabrina secondary school
Sabrina's Baxter High School exteriors were filmed at Lord Strathcona Elementary School (pictured), and David Lloyd George Elementary in Vancouver.

The time and the place in which Sabrina is set are a bit ambiguous. The first comic books came out in the 60s, hence the retro look of the series.

Greendale Sabrina
The exterior of Greendale's movie theater from the first episode was shot in an adult strip club called the Paramount Gentlemen’s Club in New Westminster.

The interior is from the historic Vogue Theatre in Granville Street (Vancouver), a stylish Art Deco building from 1941.

Many productions have taken advantage of the nice architecture of the area, like the popular Netflix series Virgin River.

Sabrina house location
According to Hollywood North, the atmospheric set of Spellman Sisters Mortuary (the funeral house of the Spellman sisters Hilda and Zelda), was built on private property in north Langley.

However, all the interior rooms were painstakingly built in a soundstage. Harvey’s House is a farmhouse situated in Delta.

The crew was also filming at Applebarn Pumpkin Farm in Abbotsford and on a private farm in Surrey.

enchanted hanging tree scene
The enchanted hanging tree is located on the meadows of Redwood Park in South Surrey.

Scenes in the forest and the dark baptism might be filmed on the grounds of the park, a large forest of exotic trees, boasting the tallest tree species in the world, and a few miles of scenic nature trails.

Whatsfilming.ca gave us some more clues about the shooting locations of Sabrina. They include Panther Paintball in Surrey, Belcarra Regional Park, and Barnet Marine Park in Burnaby.

Store night shoot
The parking lot where the football boys are drinking in the second episode is the Cypress Park Market in West Vancouver.

The exteriors of the mine where the witches take the boys were filmed at Britannia Mine Museum in Britannia Beach.

This is also a filming location featured in the Altered Carbon series.

Academy of Unseen Arts
The Academy of Unseen Arts entrance in the Gehenna Station is the old Coghlan Substation in Langley.

The building was part of the infrastructure of the old Fraser Valley Line of Vancouver’s commuter streetcar system, the BC Electric Railway connecting the city with Chilliwack.

The station was converted into an art studio in 1987.

Theo Putnam house
Theo Putnam's home is the Thomas Joseph Brown house at 13275 Colebrook Road in Surrey.

This homestead manor of the early 1900s with a wraparound veranda was also used in Supernatural and Big Sky. But it's especially notable as the house used in one of the best and darkest episodes of the X-Files, “Home” (Season 4, Episode 2).

Winged Demon statue soundstage
The production is based in the same studio where Riverdale is filmed in North Langley (at 20146 100a Avenue), where most of the interior scenes are shot.

  1. The last picture is the cypress park market, in west Vancouver. The address is 4360 Marine Dr, West Vancouver, BC V7V 1P1

  2. Hi, I'm thinking this might be the location for the School of the Unseen Arts.

    1. Wow, awesome! Thanks a lot for your help, Kate :)

  3. I think it's actually the Coghlan Substation in Langley (6900 256 Street)

  4. You have the wrong location for the School of Unseen Arts. It's a similar station from the former BC Electric Railroad, but it is not the Sumas station. It is located on 256 St just north of 68ave in the Township of Langley. If you look at the current google streetview you can even see work being done to clean up the front of the station, as well as filming direction signs pointing to the set on 256 across from the driveway. The property is currently owned and used as an art studio, see coghlanart.com . Additional information about the former station is here: http://vancouvertraces.weebly.com/coghlan-substation.html This station and the previous identified Sumas Station are the only 2 of these remaining.

    1. You are right, there are filming direction signs on the road. Many thanks for pointing that out, it's corrected now.

  5. In the episode where the three girls take the boys into the mine. The exterior at least is the at Brittania Mine Museum.

  6. The hanging tree can be found in Redwood Park in Surrey. I believe a lot of the other forest scenes were filmed there as well. 17900 20 Ave, Surrey, BC V3S 9V2

    1. Thanks a lot for your help finding these ones, updated!

  7. Hi,

    Just wanted to let you know that Cloverdale is a suburb of the City of Surrey, not a separate city.

  8. The outside shot of Miss Wardwells cottage i am almost 100% sure is the cottage from the film The Holiday as I am originally from England and lived in the village the film was made. The shot of the cottage with the church steeple in the background I'm sure is a scene from the The Holiday.

  9. The name of the cottage was Ivy cottage, built for the movie The Holiday
