Leaving Dallas now. Sadly I didn't have time to go location hunting. One of these days I will, my sister lives there. Probably won't find anything we haven't seen unless I can find the location from the mom n pop liquor store.

Holy old thread, Batman!

That said, I believe this is their same video on YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4s3gpiruJxc.

Its taken a couple of years but I think I have finally found an aerial photo of the Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel Mill in Monessen where the conclusion of Robocop was filmed!! Smile





The aerial photo was taken in 1993.

[EDIT] Just noticed that the furthest left red line is pointing at the wrong building, my bad.

I hate to gush, but...what does it say about a film when it elicits excitement even when cheap videos are made about the filming locations almost thirty-years later? Heck, the silly re-enactments brought back great memories of awesome scenes. I hate to sound like a fanboy, but how many films have that kind of effect and legacy? That's awesome...

Hello, I found other pictures of the mill
Pic 1
Pic 2


Look at Picture 2 carefully. Apart from the "entrance" in the bottom center of the picture (which is also the place where Clarence do a half turn with his car, just after Robocop shot Joe), and the "pool" at the right, can you find other locations that were used for filming?

Here is what I found:
When Emil tries to crush Robocop
When Clarence tries to escape

Okay I'm a little too excited about this right now but I've been working on it off and on for years now. I'm about 90% sure I found the location for the liquor store robbery. The only inkling I've ever had to go on is the address given on movie-locations.com which shows 378 S Industrial Blvd. Well there ain't much there in the way of gas stations/liquor stores so to make a long story short, I've used my Columbo-like detective skills and found a different (but similar) address from the description the website gave and the first thing I saw was a liquor store! And going by the exterior layout and comparing it to the scene itself (the building size in general, layout of the doors and windows) I think I've found it. Let me know what you guys think. Sorry for the extra homework but all I can provide at the moment is the physical address that should take you right to it on google maps/street view. Wish I could provide some comparison shots.

The address is: 339 S Riverfront Bld. Dallas, TX
