Where is this located?
Hmm, it may be Marina City in Chicago.
I'm sure it's been used in a ton of movies, but if I recall, there's a shot from Tommy Boy that looks just like that (when they visit Zalinsky).
Seems like it was used in The Fugitive (movie) as well.
Those towers always remind me of the beginning of The Bob Newhart Show. Definitely Chicago.
Good ol' Chi-Town !
From the Looks of the Color of The River....St. Patty's Day !
Marina City, Chicago.
Hard to beleive that is Chicago. That architecture has a very asain look to it.
Yep, "Marina City", a Federally subsidised middle-to-upper-income housing development in Chicago. Architect was Bertrand Goldberg Associates, year of bid was 1960. There are 128 efficency apartments, 288 one-bedrooms, and 32 two-bedrooms per tower, and the lower floors (below the gap about 1/3 of the way up) are a parking garage. Or, at least, they were — I thought I heard that it had been demolished?
Also the cover of Wilco's - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
I think I remember them in the Tom Hanks/Jackie Gleason movie Nothing In Common also.
The reason I remember is because they have a rather precarious-looking parking garage on the lower levels that looks like you could easily let your clutch slip and go sailing over the edge.
The first time I got to watch a film being made was at the base of Marina City.
Mickey One (1965), starring Warren Beatty, had a scene with a big piece of self destructing art. I spent hours one cold night during the winter of 63-64...watching that thing go up in sparklers and fireworks, over and over.
I've got a one sheet from the movie on my wall.
