In the early scenes of Marvel’s “Black Panther,” some kids play basketball in a parking lot in front of an apartment tower, supposedly located in Oakland, California. The real building is the Wheat Street Towers, located in Atlanta, Georgia.
LOCATION: 375 Auburn Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30312
The apartment from David Fincher’s 2002 home invasion thriller “Panic Room” is located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, near Central Park. The apartment was only used for exterior shots in the film.
LOCATION: 38 W 94th St, New York, NY 10025
Here is a view of the entire building, although it’s never seen from this angle in the film.
The apartment interiors were filmed entirely on a custom built set in Manhattan Beach, California at Raleigh Manhattan Beach Studios (1600 Rosecrans Ave, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266). That set has of course long since been removed.
The ending scene of the film shows Jodie Foster and Kristen Stewart sitting on a park bench. They are seated in an area known as The Mall in Central Park; a tree-covered pedestrian walkway that leads to Bethesda Terrace. The two are seated near the Robert Burns statue. The benches have slightly changed from how they appeared in the film.
LOCATION: The Mall, Central Park, New York, NY 10022
