Movies & Million-Dollar Mansions, Behind the Scenes at the "Flying A," & Silents on the Islands


Image: Santa Barbara Morning Press, September 13, 1914

The "Flying A" was Flying High in Santa Barbara, California in 1914



The folks from the "Flying A" studio (American Film Company) were filming in locations such as stores on State Street, all around the county, and even out on the Channel Islands. Many interior scenes were shot in the company's large glass studio. The studio was located on the corner of Mission and Chapala streets. A few of the original buildings remain, most notably the building shown in the top left of the photo.
