  1. From what I can find, it looks like the pawn shop used to be located at 1656 West Madison St in Chicago. I figured out that it was Chicago Pawners & Jewelers. When I googled them, their official website said they originally opened at Madison & Paulina. After going down the street in google's street view, I believe I found where it used to be located. However the entire block has been torn down and there is a parking lot there now. If you look at the sign on the front, it says 1656. That's obviously the address, as the food mart next door says 1660-52. Plus the pole says that there is a bus stop there, which there also is at Madison & Paulina.

  2. Darn.. you didnt have any shots from The Music Box scene. I was outside watching that for I live right around the corner.
