Bodega Bay has served as a location for several major films:

  • The Birds in 1963. Hitchcock made Bodega and Bodega Bay appear as one town in the film.
  • The Goonies in 1985.
  • The Fog in 1980 directed by John Carpenter and staring Jamie Lee Curtis and Janet Leigh.
  • Sleepwalkers in 1992 based on the original screenplay by Stephen King and directed by Mick Garris.

Bodega Bay and its horror movies! Another horror I was not aware of was that a nuclear power plant was planned for Bodega Bay in the 1960s, but was abandoned due to protests as well as the discovery of an earthquake fault. The plant was to be on the site of Bodega Head or aka “The Hole in the Head”.
