The statue of Rocky erected in the movie is now at the Spectrum stadium in Philadelphia. Three statues were contracted by Stallone and made by artist Tom Schomberg. The IISOH (International Institute for Sport and Olympic History) has acquired the other full-size statues of ROCKY. The IISOH is keeping #2 for it's museum and giving away #3 to a majot donor. [Thanks to Harvey Abrams]

Mickey's Gym and pet store can also be found in Philadelphia. From the Frankford terminal you make a left on Kensington ave under the El, a few blocks ahead on the left hand corner you can see the Gym. It's the only building of that type on a corner. There is or was a fireplug in front of the pet shop. Both buildings including most in the area are vacant and its a bad neighborhood. From 95 south you exit Allegenny ave and turn right. Turn left at KnA, that's left under the El on Kensington ave. The Gym is a ways down on the right. It obviously doesn't say "mickeys gym". The pet store is nothing also. [Thanks to Joe]

The movie was also filmed in various locations in Los Angeles, CA. For instance, the run down ghetto of LA where Appollo first trained. [Thanks to Gerry]
