The Light House featured in the film and on the poster is the Point Arena Light House, located on one of the furthest West points of the Continental United States near Manchester, CA. The house in the film was a shell built by the production team and was torn down after filming. The only permanent structures near the light house are some vacation rental units, formerly Coast Guard barracks, and the Light House Keeper's residence which is now a museum maintained by local volunteers. The light house has recently undergone renovations and is open to the public. See more
Someone knew Daniel was around somewhere. When an aging Daniel shows up at Harry's daughter's house she recognizes his name. As she never had seen him her only knowledge of him had to come from her mother, Harry's wife or Helen who knew Harry's wife and is pictured with Harry's daughter at age 2. When Helen came out of her coma she would have wondered where Daniel was. Even if they didn't know precisely that Daniel had gone cryogenic on them you would figure a vast search would have been conducted with Helen as a driving force his fiancee and childhood friend. As Daniel said she knew about the project and would have had the base thoroughly searched for Daniel. See more
