Wanna see the real life filming location used for the apartment building she lived in in the movie?

These scenes were actually shot at The Carolina Apartments, located in Wilmington, North Carolina. Google Map

The following locations are all in Downtown Wilmington NC. Our thanks to GG Jaeger!

The (former) Ace Hardware store at the corner of Castle and Front Streets was the set for Jeffrey's father's hardware store. The building is now a neighborhood grocery convenient to the rest home next door.

The Barbary Coast bar located on Front Street between Dock and Orange Streets was the exterior of the brothel, and on the DVD some unused footage shows Frank beating up a guy across the pool tables inside the actual Barbary Coast.

The diner where Jeffrey and Sandy eat was at the corner of Chestnut and 4th streets, it is still standing but is now a Port City Java coffeehouse.

The shady brick warehouse where Frank's gang meets is near the corner of Front and Wright Streets. It is still used for some filming of local TV shows like "One Tree Hill".

The "Lumberton" police department interior and exterior was shot at the real Wilmington police department on Red Cross Street between Front and Second Streets.

LX Preview

LX is our radical new locations feature that we've been beavering away on.. For years!

Each location will have it's own page with then/now pictures, maps, StreetView, discovery story and the most detailed explanations on how the location was used. Most importantly, the locations will have a status that shows whether they are verified correct and by whom. We are working with the actual locations managers or other crew where possible. The whole thing will be very interactive and you will, of course, be able to update everything.
