On Location in Santa Cruz County is an extensive list of films shot entirely or partially in Santa Cruz County, California. The time period covered is 1911 through June, 1998. There are two lists, one in alphabetical order by the film title and the other in chronological order. The period between 1911 and 1930 was the most active for local filming. For that time period, we have linked to contemporary full-text, local newspaper articles.
