On Location

The scene where Howard is flying a plane through a city street was shot in Rio Vista, CA. Most of the high school students there (all 400 of them) ditched school to be extras in the film (the people standing in the streed behind the plane) [Thanks to Aaron Pippin]

The lab where Howard the duck is taken (the outside shots) were filmed at the Exploratorium near the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco California. Even though it takes place in Ohio the majority of the movie was filmed in San Francisco [Thanks to Liz]

-But Jen also wrote in to say that most of the scenes outside the lab were filmed at the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park, not the Exploratorium, which is actually in the Marina District, no where near Golden Gate Park.

The scenes where Howard and his girl are in the back of the cab were filmed on Irving Street in the Inner Sunset around 9th Ave, the nearest neighborhood to the Academy of Sciences. [Thanks to Jen]

Can you help? Do you know any of the Cleveland, Ohio filming locations used for Howard the Duck? [Please send them in]
