Oheka Castle’s picturesque design renders it perfect for the backdrop of a movie, TV show, music video, or photoshoot. First appearing in Citizen Kane in 1941, OHEKA has appeared in three films since. From The Emperors Club to The Great Gatsby Documentary to What Happens in Vegas, the luxury of Oheka has been immortalized. Other TV shows such as Gossip Girl, Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous, and Madam Secretary have paid homage to the lavishness of the castle.

Taylor Swift stands atop the Grand Staircase in Oheka singing, “Oh my god look at that face,” in her “Blank Space” music video. As she roams through the lavish interior rooms of the castle and the extravagant grounds with the featured man in the video, she takes advantage of all the picture-ready locations on property.
