In 1998, the Syndicate held a meeting in London. Conrad Strughold, who had traveled all the way from Tunis, attended the meeting. (The X-Files Movie)

Background Information

The script of The X-Files Movie reveals that the Syndicate meeting in that film takes place in Kensington, London but this information is not provided in the film's final version. In reality, the exterior of the building where the Syndicate supposedly meet was Queen Alexandra's House in Kensington Gore, SW7, alongside the Albert Hall in Kensington.

Shots supposedly inside the London building used by the Syndicate were actually filmed inside the Athenaeum, the dining club of the California Institute of Technology, at 551 South Hill Avenue, Pasadena. This was a frequently used location, seen in Beverly Hills Cop and True Romance among other filmed productions.
