The Boyz n the Hood house - Filming Location

This is the filming location of Tre's house from the hood drama film "Boyz n the Hood" (1991).

The house is situated at 5918 Cimarron Street in Los Angeles, California.

During the movie, Tre (Cuba Gooding Jr.) lives at this address with his father, Jason "Furious" Styles (Laurence Fishburne).

Tre is forced to move to his father's house after he gets into a fight at school. At the time, his mother believed that he needed a positive male influence who could discipline him and stop him from going down the wrong path in life.

When Tre first arrives, his father immediately sets the tone for his stay by telling him to clean up all of the leaves on the front lawn—a lengthy chore that takes him hours to complete.

Afterwards, Furious explains to Tre that he is trying to teach him how to be responsible.

One of the most notable scenes takes place at the start of the movie, when a burglar creeps into the house late at night. When Furious hears him, he grabs his gun from underneath his bed and opens fire. However, the burglar manages to escape just in time.

It is worth noting that Tre's friends, Doughboy and Ricky, live across the street at 5914 Cimarron Street. This means that you can view both of these iconic filming locations at the same time.

Details about the general area

Although South Central Los Angeles does have a high crime rate, it is not the "no go" area that movies often portray it as. Most of the violence occurs between rival gang members. To play it safe, avoid the area at night, be vigilant of your surroundings, and conceal any valuables.

Tre Boyz n the Hood rakes leaves

At the start of Boyz n the Hood, Tre arrives at his father's house.

It takes Tre a considerable amount of time to rake up all of the leaves. Towards the end of the scene, we can see that it is starting to get dark out.



After Furious opens fire on the burglar, he calls 911. During this scene, Furious and Tre wait outside for the police to arrive.

When they do show up, Furious is clearly irritated by how late they are.
