Blake! We found the secret Bat Cave!

Blake! We found the secret Bat Cave!

Image by Chuck “Caveman” Coker
This is the secret Bat Cave used in the Batman TV series from 1966 to 1968. The real name of this place is the Bronson Caves in Bronson Canyon.


From the Wikipedia entry Bronson Canyon:

Bronson Canyon is a section of Griffith Park in Los Angeles, California that has become famous as a filming location for a very large number of movies and TV shows, especially westerns and science fiction, from the early days of motion pictures to the present. Its craggy and remote-looking setting, but easily accessible location, has made it a prime choice for filmmakers, particularly of low-budget films, who want to place scenes in a lonely wilderness.

Originally named Brush Canyon, the famous hill and cave setting is on the western side of Griffith Park. In 1903, the Union Rock Company founded a quarry for excavation of crushed rock, used in the construction of city streets. The quarry ceased operation in the late 1920s, leaving the caves behind. The caves, known as the Bronson Caves, gave the area its more popular name of Bronson Canyon.

Scenes of the main cave entrance are normally filmed in a manner that shows the entrance at an angle. This is because the cave is actually a very short tunnel through the hill, with the rear opening easily visible in a direct shot. The most well known appearance of the tunnel entrance is likely as the entrance to the Batcave in the Batman television series of the 1960′s.
