Cinematic Collinwood featured on Saturday Night Live

The cast and crew of Saturday Night Live set up shop at Lyndhurst Mansion for last weekend's parody of the Downton Abbey feature film. While the fake trailer's establishing shot was of Highclere Castle, the stand-in for the show's fictional country estate, the rest of the clip was shot in and around Lyndhurst ... the Tarrytown, New York, mansion transformed into Collinwood for both House of Dark Shadows (1970) and Night of Dark Shadows (1971). Below is a screencap of SNL castmember Beck Bennett standing outside Lyndhurst, as well as a shot from House of Dark Shadows of Kathryn Leigh Scott, John Karlen and David Henesy in more-or-less the same spot.
