    1. That was actually North Center Bowl, on Lincoln Ave. 1/2 block north of the intersection of Irving Park/Damen/Lincoln. It was the scene after Eddie gets drunk and hustled by Forrest Whittaker. The scene at Chris' Billiards was where Vincent was ordered by Eddie to "dump" to the other guy and his girlfriend finally convinced him to.

  5. The Child World building still exists under a different name in a mall on the north side of Fullerton Ave. at the Chicago River, about a 1/2 mile west of St. Paul Billiards at 1415 W. Fullerton.

  6. The Child World was part of the Forest Park Mall at the NWC of Roosevelt Road and Des Plaines Avenue in Forest Park, IL.

    1. In 2013 your right, Childs World long gone, but not just an empty parking lot. It was a Venture (anyone remember that store?) Now there's a wal mart and Portillos there.

      I know you're right! I used to work at Venture in '86. I remember as well them filming at Fitzgeralds only blocks from where I lived at the time in Oak Park. It only makes sense they'd use that ChildWorld! 5 Years later I watched the filming of League of Their own. I saw Madonna, ROsie O'Donnell & Gina Davis all standing on Euclid Ave. & Roosevelt Rd. we just talked them for 5 minutes before their limo came. Wish I had an album for Madonna to sign back in 1991!!

    1. No, it's Forest Park. Fitzgeralds was in Berwyn, my dads house was down the street and we remember them shooting. That child worlds location in forest park is only 5 miles down the road, also on Roosevelt. Cross street is DesPlaines. I lived with my mom down that street coincidentally. Interesting useless fact, Forest Park was in the Guinness Book of Records for having more dead people than alive. Anyone who is familiar with that area knows what I'm saying.

    2. But that Child's World was torn down decades ago. It's not an empty lot totally, pushed back further is a Wal Mart. Growing up in Forest Park at the time of the Forest Park Mall was never ever a cool place to be. Worst attempt of a mall ever!

  9. Place on Fullerton and Southport was called St. Paul Billiards, a more wretched hive of scum and villany you'd be hard pressed to find.
