Captain Marvel (2019)

The 2019 movie “Captain Marvel” was filmed in Louisiana, New York and Southern California.  Early in the film, Carol Danvers, played by Brie Larson, crash lands on Earth in the mid-90s, busting through the roof of a Blockbuster Video.  This was filmed at a largely abandoned shopping plaza in North Hollywood sometimes referred to as the Valley Plaza.  The same plaza was featured heavily in the Nicolas Winding Refn TV series “Too Old To Die Young.”

Carol makes her way over to “The Slow Club,” where she uses a payphone.  Nick Fury meets her here.  The same property also serves as “The Lone Drifter” in “Too Old To Die Young.”  Both establishments were fictional and the actual building has long been vacant.

Here is a view of where the payphone was located, which was of course a prop for the film.  The wall was covered in 90s music posters.
