Eighties Movie Locations That Really Exist, Movies Beginning with A
This is a list of places that are in movies, but have a real life counterpart.
Please try and be as specific as possible in describing where something is
and when it appears in a movie. I don't want just city names where filming
took place so much as I want landmark type buildings.

Mother's Bar, the bar where Rob Lowe and James Belushi hang out is actually in Downtown Chicago (or it was at least five years ago when I went there and the movie was made in 1986)
The bar that Steven Segal got into a fight in was called Mickey's on Clark and Diversey. It has been remodeled since the movie was shot.
Adventures In Babysitiing
The El Stop Where The Kids Got Off It's The Illinios Masonic Hospital Stop In Chicago Illinois.
The bus station (set in Downtown Chicago) where the kids are supposed to pick up a friend is actually the old bus terminal in downtown Toronto. It was refurbished a couple years after the movie was made.
Johnstown,pa. Conemaugh,franklin Boro,point Stadium All In Johnstown.
The airport location in the movie always was shot in Libby Montana. The control tower and office they built for the movie is still there.
Ephrata, WA and Lind, WA - Some airport scences were shot in Ephrata, WA. The "Ceasar's" bar scene was shot in Lind, WA, in a real bar called Slims. A friend's mother is in the bar scene as well
They filmed the big gymnastics competition at Central High School in Phoenix, AZ and paid a lot of high school bands to come and be the audience!! The scenes where Mitch Gaylord is working out in the woods were shot up in Flagstaff, AZ
This cycling movie, starred a then-unknown (virtually)Kevin Costner. Opening scenes of the movie show a character's residence, supposedly an apartment building, was actually the once glamorous (and now defunct) Chase-Park Plaza Hotel. Other ((athose on Memorial Drive, in view of the Gateway Arch and surrounding federal parklands.
Amityville 2: The Possession
Locations are in Jersey City (Hudson County) and Toms River (Ocean County) in New Jersey. As in the original movie, the house is located in Toms River on Water Street, on the Toms River waterfront, several miles from the businesses.
Just as your driving into Port Townsend WA, The Tides in is on your right hand side, this is where Mayo's buddy hung himself, not to mention the love scenes.
The water dunker and altitude chamber scenes were filmed at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island near Oak Harbor, WA.
The officer training scenes were filmed at Ft. Worden State Park in Port Townsend, WA. The love scenes were filmed at The Tides Inn, also in Port Townsend. This small roadside inn is still in operation, and you can even stay in "The Officer and a Gentleman Suite" where the scenes were filmed.
Remember the mansion that Daddy Warbucks calls home (and how the camera shows the huge main room by panning to a massive glass celing)? It's actually Wilson Hall (yes, the pres once slept there), part of Monmouth University (then Monmouth College) in West Long Branch, New Jersey.
The finale was filmed in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Since the downtown isn't very big many store fronts are still recognizable as is the park where the big fight between Clint Eastwood and William Smith ended. The park's gates are arches of antlers that were seen in the movie.
