Gathering to be taken on board a UFO cannot be done in Pennsylvania, as the episode of the “X-Files” suggests, but in British Colombia. The Ruskin dam, a 1930 powerhouse, was used for recording of “Patient X” as well as “The Red and the Black” episodes.
Once, an mental hospital, but closed in 2012. TV production discovered this location and it has proven to be very suitable as a hospital location for filming. It is now the most filmed site in Canada.
“The X-files” came here for many episodes, including the Pilot and throughout season 5.
Other productions include: “Elf”, “Psych”, “Battlestar Galactica”, “Once upon a time”, “The Killing”, “Fringe”, “Arrow”, “Smallville”, “Happy Gillmore” and many more….
In season three of “The X-Files”, Mulder goes to the Ovaltine Cafe in Vancouver, Canada, but he was not alone…. or was he… anyway, he ate pie. Ans so can you, because this cafe is open for buisiness.
You might also have seen this same cafe in “Get Carter” and “I am Robot”.
The Grouse Mountain Skyride has been used for the episodes “Duane Barry” and “Ascension” episodes of the popular TV-show, “The X-Files”. It is open to visitors so you can feel like Mulder and Scully and ride to the stars…
In the X-Files episode “Paper Clip”, Fox Mulder is looking through loads of filing cabinets. The location used was an old copper mine. Nowadays, that site has been renovated and is the Brittania Mine Museum.
You can still recognise the location and even find the exit Fox uses.
