In Los Angeles County, there is a small city just south of Pasadena, aptly named South Pasadena, California. The city is fewer than three and a half square miles and is bounded on the north by Pasadena, on the northeast by San Marino, on the south by Alhambra, and on the west by Highland Park. It is home to roughly twenty-five thousand residents and has a reputation for being family-friendly and having excellent public schools. Area schools include Monterey Hills, Marengo, and Arroyo Vista Elementary schools, South Pasadena Middle School, and South Pasadena High School. The main thoroughfares in the city are Mission Street, Huntington Drive, and Fair Oaks, and it boasts a Metro Gold Line Mission Station in the middle of town. Additionally, it has a rich history, well-preserved in sites such as Cawston Ostrich Farm, The Rialto Theatre, and Fair Oaks Pharmacy and Soda Fountain.
The Cawston Ostrich Farm was opened in 1886 and was the nation’s first ostrich farm, and The Rialto Theatre, though not quite as old, was built in 1925 and continues to operate today as one of the Los Angeles area’s last single-screen movie theaters. The Fair Oaks Pharmacy and Soda Fountain is also in operation, serving up modern delights in a vintage atmosphere. Sites such as these, and the overall aesthetic of the city have led it to be involved in many major motion pictures such as Bruce Almighty, Back to the Future, Legally Blonde, Halloween, Gone with the Wind, and The Terminator, among others. South Pas also boasts a long list of diverse dining opportunities that include the Heirloom Bakery and Cafe in its artsy Mission West district, Mother Moo Creamery & Marketplace, Fiore Market Cafe, Canoe House, Mike and Anne’s, Gus’s Barbeque, and Modan Artisanal Ramen.
