Bishop Museum

The State Museum of Cultural and Natural History, Bishop Museum, has served as a filming location for several episodes. The museum’s “Great Lawn” was where Eloise was staging the “fusion” concert when Desmond visited her in the flash-sideways (“Happily Ever After,” Ep. 6×11, “The End,” Ep. 6×17). The backstage area where Claire gave birth to Aaron was the Long Gallery inside historic Hawaiian Hall. The side of the Hawaiian Hall has also appeared as the London waterfront (“Flashes Before Your Eyes,” Ep. 3×08) and as a snowy street in Russia (“He’s Our You,” Ep. 5×10).

Ala Wai Harbor

The Ala Wai Harbor (also known as the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor or the Ala Wai Small Boat Harbor) is the setting of several “LOST” scenes. It is the marina where Boone confronts Shannon’s boyfriend and attempts to pay him off (”Hearts and Minds,” Ep. 1×13). It is also the marina where Charlie caused Desmond to crash his car into the water (“Happily Ever After,” Ep. 6×11). And the same area is also the backdrop for the iconic photo of Desmond and Penny (“Flashes Before Your Eyes,” Ep. 3×08). Note the twin towers of the Hawaii Prince Hotel visible in the background.

The office where both Claire met would-be adoptive parents (”Raised By Another,” 1×10) and where Micheal faced his ex (”Adrift,” Ep. 2×02) was a conference room in the same building.

Fort Street Mall – Merchant Street

The busy downtown London street where Desmond meets Charlie playing his guitar (“Flashes Before Your Eyes,” Ep. 3×08) was Fort Street Mall between S. King and Merchant streets. A green screen was used for scenes facing south toward Merchant Street to add in a more expansive London cityscape. Continue reading Fort Street Mall – Merchant Street

Fort Street Mall – South King Street

The busy downtown London street where Desmond and Ms. Hawking discuss destiny (“Flashes Before Your Eyes,” Ep. 3×08) was Fort Street Mall between S. King and Merchant streets.
