Office Space Filming Locations

Office Space is one of the most hilareous "true-to-life" movies I've ever seen! I was amazed to find out that it was almost entirely filmed here in Austin!! Being so close to these filming locations, I could not resist hunting them down and snapping these shots. On this page, you will see a screen capture from the movie immediately followed by a picture I took on location. Enjoy!
