Welcome to Koch's Movie Ranch! We are located in Acton, CA, in the rugged Sierra Pelona Mountains. Just off the Antelope Valley Freeway (Highway 14) near Palmdale, Acton is conveniently located about 20 miles (32 km) northeast of the San Fernando Valley and 47 miles (76 km) north of downtown Los Angeles. The town has a rural western theme which can be seen in its homes, commercial buildings, and historical buildings, some of which date back to the late 1800s. While Acton is not a part of the Antelope Valley, it is grouped together with the "AV" in the General Plan. Acton has a Metrolink commuter rail station, on its border with Palmdale that is themed in an "old western" style and has been seen in various movies and commercials.

Koch's Movie Ranch is the ideal location for your shoot, offering many amenities including:

Acton was one of the filming locations for the TV movie Duel, and the Clint Eastwood movie Blood Work. Terminator 3 was partially filmed at the local AM-PM Gas Station, located on the south side of Highway 14. Acton is also where Little Miss Sunshine was along highway 14 near Red Rover Mine Road. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' Swingin music video was filmed along Escondido Canyon Road. Also filmed in Acton was Army of Darkness. Metallica shot the video for the song The Day That Never Comes in Acton. Radiohead shot the UK version of the video for the song High and Dry in Acton at the Vasquez Rocks Natural Area Park. Large parts of the movie Windtalkers was also shot in Acton, as were some of the underwater scenes of the Titanic sinking (filmed in a specially constructed pool)
