On Location

TheArnoldFans.com is pleased to announce the launch of "On Location: In Arnold's Shoes"! This new section is made for the FANS who can visit Arnold's movie locations and give us THEN AND NOW photo comparisons. How did the set look when the movie was filmed and how does it look now with YOU STANDING at the site? We want to see YOU on location!

Welcome to Big Buns: Sarah Connor's restaurant!

On Location

Naturally the name "Big Buns" was only used for the movie but it's real name is Carrows Restaurant. Many of us have been to a Carrows but this one is special; Linda Hamilton and James Cameron walked all over this set of The Terminator! Perhaps Arnold himself ate here a few times as well when he waited for his scene to be filmed a few miles away.

Although it was sad to see the restaurant has been remodeled over the last two decades, many of the exact features remain. Notice the vertical brickwork in the employee room, the windows, the original roof and best of all the kitchen area is nearly identical from the film. The spirit of James Cameron sits with you when you eat.

If you visit this site, be sure to tip your waitress and don't put ice crème in her apron...she could just be the mother of our future leader!
