Under their watchful eye, the following special places were used for filming "Roxanne":
We think the fire station is on Ward street. [Thanks to Cheryl Larcombe]
We think the restaraunt (Dixie's Cafe) is actually on Vernon Street, on the next block to the Heritage Hotel. It is now a closed lot, but on the movie you can see the very wide sidewalk and parking meters, distinctive of that block of Vernon Street. Also visible on the left at one point is the corner rotunda of the council chamber building on the corner of Ward & Vernon. [Thanks to Alan Poole]
The bar scene is a bar in Vancouver called Richard's on Richard. It's nickname is Dick's on Dick. [Thanks to David Okamoto]
There is a walking tour of locations that you can take if you go to Nelson, BC.
Roxanne's House is not in Nelson. It's actually in the beautiful village of Anmore, BC - approximately 40 minutes from downtown Vancouver BC. Owned by the Piamonte family, the house is virtually identical to how it was in 1987. Even the iron bar used by Charlie to swing up to balcony to rescue Roxanne's cat is still there! In the movie the siding was a light blue - it has been replaced with the current beige siding.
The house was also used as setting for a made for TV movie entitled "The People Across the Lake" - a murder mystery. [Thanks to Mario Piamonte]

Locations LinksFollowing is a recommended link:
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.
