The filming of the movie...
16 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I grew up in Oroville, CA. Some scenes of BJ and the Bear were shot there. The "Orly Club" Was still standing until about 2000, or so, The window was even still decorated. BJ's fictitious hangout was sadly destroyed by fire. The Eagle's lodge was used for exterior shots of the sheriff's office, and Claude Akins (Sheriff Lobo was our parade grand marshal, that year. I was watching the opening credits on another website, just last week and noticed Highway 70 (which runs through Oroville) in some of the footage. I was only about nine or ten years old at the time and haven't seen the movie or TV series since then, so i really can't elaborate...
