The saucer crash scenes in Men in Black (1997) was also done at Big Sky Movie Ranch. Coming to America (1988), Wild Bill (1995) and Driftwood (1994) are just a few others featuring scenes from this ranch. The palace seen in Coming to America with Eddie Murphy was built on flat lands behind the ranch. Many may remember the toy village built by Mount McCoy in the winter of 2002-2003. 24 "houses" were built here for the filming of The Cat in the Hat (2003). The neighborhood and city center in this film was located right here by the Ronald Reagan Library and nearby Mount McCoy. Remember the drive-in movie scene from Poetic Justice (1993)? In this film you can see Janet Jackson watch a film at the former Simi Valley Drive-In (361 Tierra Rejada Road). The home and neighborhood featured in Honey, I Blew Up the Kid (1992) is located at Azure Hills Dr. In the end of Bachelor Party (1984) you can see chase scenes from the fictional Mann 36 Theater, actually located at the Mann 6 Theater in Simi. This theater is located where HomeGoods now is located at Sycamore Square on 3050 Cochran Street. Furthermore, two scenes from the movie The Good Girl (2002) were filmed in Simi. While the retail shop is located at 2790 E. Los Angeles Ave, Holden's house is found at 5368 Leland Circle.

The Santa Susana Pass in easternmost Simi Valley has been featured in a variety of Western movies. Some movies with scenes here include Jack and the Beanstalk (1917), Range Warfare (1935), Shooting High (1940), Judith of Bethulia (1940) and others. Up the Santa Susana Pass and closer to Chatsworth is where we find Spahn Ranch, which may be mostly known for being home of the Manson family for several years. Movies were also made here through the 60's and 70's, including Hangfire (1968), The Ramrodder (1969) and Angels' Wild Women (1972). Up in the Santa Susana's is also where the Bell Location Ranch was located. This ranch was used for filming Zorro, The Big Valley, How the West Was Won and many other TV-series. Some of the movies filmed here include Sunset (1988) featuring Bruce Willis, Riding Shotgun (1954), Sierra Stranger (1957), Hard On the Trail (1971), Santee (1973) and a few others.
