Where was Home Sweet Home Alone filmed?
Home Sweet Home Alone used a handful of locations to bring this installment to life, primarily in Vancouver, British Columbia, and Montreal, Quebec.
Other locations visited in Quebec included Longueuil, the Parc St-Mark, and Café Terrasse. The local Parc St-Mark held a Christmas fair that was used as a backdrop for some shots in the film.
Additionally, Tokyo, Japan was filmed to capture various establishing shots, as this is the location the parents of lead character Max are visiting.
A majority of the filming for Home Sweet Home Alone was filmed in Montreal, with shots being established in and around the city.
The suburbs of Beaconsfield was decorated to exist within the festive period and the residential streets were used in the backdrop of the film.
Additionally, Hudson, another suburb within the city, was used to stand in for Winnetka, Illinois.
Vancouver, British Columbia
Home Sweet Home Alone’s production crew also took advantage of the snowy setting of Vancouver during the winter season.
The city was used for a couple of scenes to create a sense of city life, which also stood in for Chicago, Illinois.
