Hello, and thank you for visiting the website dedicated to The Sanctuary Adventist Church, otherwise known as the "The Kill Bill Church.” In addition to being featured in the Quentin Tarantino movies “Kill Bill: Volume 1” and “Kill Bill: Volume 2,” The Sanctuary Adventist Church has also appeared in other movies, including “Crossroads” starring Britney Spears, “True Confessions” starring Robert De Niro, and “Inferno” starring Jean-Claude Van Damme.
The Sanctuary Adventist Church (previously known as the Calvary Baptist Church) is a working church located at the intersection of 198th Street East and East Avenue G in Lancaster, California.
The Spanish-style church, a replica of real missions in Southern California, sits on a stretch of road surrounded by small farms, ranches, and homes. A lonely Joshua Tree stands out front greeting passers-by as well as church parishioners and sightseers. It is easy to understand why the church was chosen for the “Kill Bill” Wedding Chapel scene where the Deadly Viper Assassination Team attempts to kill “the Bride” (Uma Thurman).
People from all around the world visit the church to attend the services. All are welcome to sit in the pews. To schedule appointments to view the interior and tour the church, please contact Richard Gonzales at 661-727-3794.
Please note that photographs of the inside and outside of the church are prohibited without express permission from management.
