Torrance is a city located in southwestern Los Angeles County, California. The city is named after its founder, oilman Jared Sidney Torrance.

Torrance High School is not only one of the oldest high schools in California, its facade is familiar to television viewers as the setting for Torrance 90210 and Buffy the Vampire Slayer and to moviegoers for its appearances in She's All That.

South High School, near the southern border of Torrance, was used as a location for the 1999 filming of the movie American Beauty.

Del Amo Fashion Center, at three million square feet, is one of the largest malls in the United States. Estimates vary between the second largest (after the Mall of America) and the fourth largest, depending on the measurements used. The current mall was created when Del Amo Center, built in 1958, merged with Del Amo Fashion Square, built in 1970. Once located on opposite sides of Carson Street, a gigantic expansion of the mall spanning Carson Street joined the two centers by 1982, making it the longest mall in the world at the time.

Del Amo Fashion Center has been used as a location for several motion pictures, including Jackie Brown and Bad Santa. In 2005, the east end of the original mall north of Carson Street was demolished to make way for a new open-air shopping center, scheduled to open in summer of 2006.
