  1. There are a number of other locations in that opening 2 minutes, notably the Statue of the Republic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statue_of_the_Republic) on Hayes Drive in Jackson Park.

  2. Was just looking at a photo of the area where Nelson jumps the little wall and looks at the lake (with those cool Gothic light fixtures on the rocks). It looks like they built the Klarcheck Information Common Building right in front of the Red Building from that shot and they have since removed those cool light fixtures.

  3. The cemetery is on the Northside of Chicago, think it's called Wunder's Cemetery, just south of Graceland Cemetery. I was at a cafe/theatre very late at night and they were filming in the cemetery. The cafe is Nightcrawlers and theatre is Live Bait. Whatever the cemetery is across the street from there, that is it.

  4. The cemetary you are still searching for was Jewish Graceland - I was watching from Clark Street while they were filming.

  6. The teasing of Winnie - The playlot scene where Kevin Bacon sees the girl he teased as a child was filmed in the school parking lot. The other perspective is 180 deg opposite, where you see and elevated train headed north.

  7. Winnie's adult house was located in Bensenville (mentioned by name in the movie) and was located at the intersection of Memorial and Church Roads, on the West side of Church road. (Just south of BlackHawk Jr. High School. It has since been torn down and is now a new neighborhood.

  8. 00:38- I believe the bridge Rachel and Davis argued on is the Wacker street bridge in chicago.

  9. In the second screenshot Kiefer Sutherland is standing in front of the old Jesuit Residence. Some hospital scenes were filmed in there. It was demolished in 2008.

  10. I worked on the set and applied and removed the giant poster that said TOUGH or something with a guys face on the side of the building. This was just off Wood Street north of Division. The building you are searching for: 1:04) Rachel's House In Flashback / Still Searching For This Location was in that area also.
    Nice site BTW.

  11. The viaduct looks like it was in Hyde Park because the South Shore Electric line runs on the track above and some stops back then had restricted entrances for security reasons. I also saw a mural on the viaduct wall.

  12. The building wall where David scales down the wall and area where smoke coming from a pile of leaves has now been built over with a new building covering that entire location.
