Marian Delario, played by Alyssa Milano, sends a group of skaters into the Shuko Center shopping plaza to create a diversion with security as they enter the building. These scenes were filmed inside the Tower City Center in Cleveland, Ohio. The same shopping mall was seen in the film “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”

LOCATION: 230 W Huron Rd, Cleveland, OH 44113

The closing scenes were filmed at the Sixth Street Viaduct in Downtown Los Angeles. The original bridge was demolished in 2016, due to a flaw in the original concrete used to build the bridge, which gave it a high likelihood of eventual collapse. A new bridge was built in it’s place and opened in 2022. The original bridge appeared in countless films, including “Terminator 2: Judgement Day,” “Drive,” “Repo Man,” “Grease,” “Blade,” “Swordfish,” and dozens more.
