..this came up when i looked up interesting stuff to see around route 66.. this was where the movie Bagdad Cafe was shot.. i haven’t watched that one yet..

Bagdad Café (also known as Out of Rosenheim) is a 1987 German film directed by Percy Adlon. The film runs 95 minutes in the U.S. and 108 minutes in the German version.

Bagdad, California is the original setting (Bagdad, Arizona is an unrelated town). There was an actual Bagdad Cafe that existed in the ’60s when U.S. Route 66 ran through the town; it (and the town) have since vanished. The site is marked by a railroad siding and a single tree.The film was shot at what was then the Sidewinder Cafe in Newberry Springs, California, 50 miles west of the original site of Bagdad on old U.S. 66. Since then, the café has become something of a tourist destination, and has changed its name to the Bagdad Café. A small notice board on the café wall features snapshots of the film’s cast and crew.
