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

This Steven Segal film is set aboard the USS Missouri and appears to have been filmed at sea. In reality, it was shot aboard the USS Alabama, a decomissioned World War II ship of the same class as the Missouri. The intersting thing about this is that the Alabama is permanently docked at Mobile, Alabama and all the scenes in which the ship appears to be moving are the result of creative editing. Also, the skyline of Mobile is very visible in the background if viewing the ship from the starboard side and it had to be edited out.
The scene where Eliot Ness battle Al Capone's men at a train station was actually filmed at Chicago's Union Station. Brian DePalma filmed it to look like the Odessa Steps scene in the 1925 film "The Battleship Potemkin".
