I used to work at the J.C. Penney store in Monroeville, PA where Dawn of the Dead was filmed. The mall is pretty much the same except the ice skating rink was removed in the 1980's and a food court was put there. The mall is kinda run down and shabby now. I've been to most of the places in All The Right Moves. I have yet to go look at Stef's house, and I found out where they filmed the scene where Lea Thompson and the Coach's wife have a conversation. I need to take pics! Also, Slapshot was filmed when I was a little kid and I've been to the Cambria County War Memorial arena too many times to count for everything from concerts, hockey games, home remodeling shows,etc. I would love to find out the location of the team owner's house and also the cabin where the one player hides out from Paul Newman. I used to walk around in Central Park in Johnstown when we would go visit my Grandparents downtown and my Grandfather would sometimes buy popcorn at Glosser Bros. store and we'd feed the pigeons.
I really want to find the church in Ohio where the Deer Hunter was filmed.
I also told my husband that we are going to Astoria someday and going to the state park and driving by all of the houses used in the Goonies.

Were you able to see any of the filming of those movies Pittsburghgirl?
Been to Astoria 3 times. Charming little town. We stayed at the Lamplighter Motel which was very clean but was right by the main road and was noisy. We turned on a box fan (for the hum that drowned out the cars) in the room and that helped alot. We were able to walk to the Short Circuit house from there which was only a couple blocks away.

gotta go back, unfortunately I was not old enough to see the filming of any of the movies. When they filmed All The Right Moves, you had to be 16 to be an extra. My brother went down to the stadium (Point Stadium) one night. My friend's sister was an extra for most of the shoot. Also had a couple of friends who met Tom Cruise while they shot the scene of the guys trashing the coach's house- it was shot very close to their homes. The girl who played the head cheerleader (you will see her at the pep rally and also at the house party dancing) ended up working with me when I was a little older. I also knew some of the football players but not too many because they were a few years older than me. I really wish I could have been around for the filming of Slap Shot too. My Mother and I were going to go shopping at Glosser Bros. one Sat. afternoon when it was filming, and on the opposite corner of the street waiting to cross also was JoAnn Woodward, Paul Newman's wife. I heard that the producers called her in because Paul and the gang were getting way too rowdy and they were having a hard time completing the film on schedule. I know they trashed the Holiday Inn while they stayed there. Sounds to me they had alot of fun filming. I am still looking for a Palm Isle beer coaster as a souvenir- the place burnt down a few years back. It was one of the bars where they filmed.

Not last year but the year before that i went on holiday to vienna and went to prater park in vienna's city center where they filmed scenes from - the living daylights and - before sunrise.

i went on the risenrad (pictured) the oldest big wheel in the world what timothy dalton and Maryam d'Abo were filmed on as well ethan hawke and julie delpy.

vienna hosts the eurovision song contest tomorrow (no doubt the uk will come near last again [Big Grin] ) and it just come up on the news and jogged my memory to post on here.

it's a really great city and if you ever get chance to visit i say go for it!

the street food alone is worth it.

Yeah it is a big old size (65 metres),the thing that gets to you a bit is how creaky it all is as it sounds like it is actually going to fall apart on you at times.


You can actually have a sit down meal on one of the carriages which would be cool but if I remember right quite pricey!


Infact while we was in Vienna it was this theme park the prater park where the risenrad big wheel is at that we blew most of our budget as you have to pay a few euro each ride and when you times that by a family of 4 or 5 it soon adds up.

It was great fun though.


Check out this video of prater park Vienna it gives you a good idea of what it is like - http://youtu.be/xWL1TkLohY8

The buildings that were the basis of the Police Academy movies are still intact for the most part up here in West Toronto.

Here's a few pics I took last year

I finally found this. Wasn't sure which topic it was on. The SPIRAL LIFT on that coaster was different. Never seen that style before. And that TAGADA. No restraints and rider are encouraged to get up and try to defy gravity! WHAT!

Our local fun park has been around since the 70s. If you want to check it out on YOUTUBE, it is called WORLDS OF FUN in Kansas City

As a youngster I went to Worlds of Fun many times in the 70s and 80s. Probably less than 10 times since. Oceans of Fun just a handful of times.
I looked at the link you supplied Warrior and thought it was pretty good. Thanx. I especially like the sign he took a picture of of the Timber Wolf warning. It is a wooden coaster. I found his remarks about the coaster to be accurate. That thing jerks you around and I will never ride it again and I know many who share this opinion.

Did you notice the ZOLTAR game?

I have not riden a lot of the new rides but the Detonator and Mamba I have. The Detonator is the most intense ride I have ever been on, You launch straight up, REAL FAST, 210 feet. The Mamba roller coaster has a 200 foot drop to start and it is fast. I believe it reaches 70 miles per hour.

I really need to go to WOF with my son cause hes at that age but IM a little leary about the rides. We went to the local traveling carnival last year and we rode this thing and it was on full blast and it jacked me up for the rest of the day. A case of getting old I guess.

Verruckt looks insane!

Was in St. Louis Missouri over the weekend and missed my turn on the freeway. I turned around at the next chance and on the way back we went across the Mississippi river...the old man..deeeep river. The same bridge the Griswolds went across going into st. Louis. I could'nt help throwing out some lines from that scene with the family. Memories

Anytime we go in to a bad neighborhood, I always say to my wife, "roll em up!"

Since moving to Arizona years ago, I've been to several locations for Bill& Ted's Excellent Adventure. The shopping mall at the end. The high school at the beginning, the Circle K (of course we sat on the curb and said "strange things are afoot at the Circle K!") and the waterslide park that doubled for Waterloo.

I need to make it down to Tucson to check the locations for Can't Buy Me Love and Just One Of The Guys at some point. [Smile]

I took many pictures of the Ashkeigh Falls, Lenane, County Galway, in Ireland on our tour back in June. The movie The Field was filmed there, starring Tom Berenger and Richard Harris. I have never seen the movie. The tour guide told us about it.

First Blood came on the other day so I grabbed the computer and looked it up on the Rewind for the locations and behind the scenes while I watched. JUst wanted to say there is a link that goes to a pretty good tour and layout of the locations in Hope BC, Canada.
