Eighties Movie Locations That Really Exist, Movies Beginning with D
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.

Damien Omen II
The military school in the movie is the former Northwestern Military Academy in Fontana (Lake Geneva), Wisconsin. The school merged with St. John's Military Academy in Delafield, Wisconsin where it is now located. The old Northwestern campus is owned by a Chicago business woman who hopes to tear it down and build condos. Currently the building still stands but has been unoccupied for almost five years and is crumbling on the inside and out. The only occupants are birds (Just like in the movie). Many local kids have broken into the building and destroyed portions on the inside. The current owner fearing one of these trespassers could be seriously hurt inside the crumbling building has placeed a caretaker onsight (the old teachers' apartments next door) to protect it. The caretaker has a huge dog that he makes the rounds with. Watch out!
Ft. Myers, Fl. The very beginning when they show the empty streets except for the zombies is located in downtown Ft. Myers. It's north of Naples, South of Sarasota on I-75. The actual shots of the steps of a bank building and an old arcade are still there, somewhere around Main Street or 1st.
