The REAL Twin Peaks Savings and Loan

Thanks to a fellow fan who had the filming notes from Episode 29, I was able to find the filming location for the Twin Peaks Savings & Loan.  Located in downtown Los Angeles in the basement of the former Los Angeles Stock Exchange, the building (as of Summer 2010) was being renovated and after some begging and pleading and two phone calls I talked my way in.  I took a rickety old elevator to the bottom floor, and as the door opened up, BAM there was the vault!

I stepped out and looked around, immediately noticing that a few walls had been knocked down and a few new walls put up.  The elevator door was almost right where Dell Mibler’s desk was, as seen below.

The entire basement looked as if it had just been prepped for a massive cleaning, as it was a bit dusty and there were quite a few plastic coverings lying around everywhere.

Anyway, I stepped inside the vault and continued my near meltdown as I took it all in.  It is hard to say when the last time this vault had actually been put to use, it really seemed as if the basement had been deserted for quite awhile.

I was even able to find the exact safety deposti box where Thomas Eckhardt plants the bomb!

A few other things I noticed were a huge statue of Elvis which sat just outside of the camera view next to a grand stairway.  Also, the entire wall where Pete and Andrew enter had been knocked down completely.

Thanks for checking out this exclusive trip to the Twin Peaks Savings and Loan!!
