Birds Of Prey: And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn (2020)

The 2020 film “Birds Of Prey: And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn” was mostly filmed around Los Angeles, California.  Harley Quinn, played by Margot Robbie, lives at this upstairs apartment in Chinatown.  The address is 301 Ord St, with the view seen in the film facing the intersection of Ord St / New High St.

LOCATION: 301 Ord St, Los Angeles, CA 90012

Harley visits a supermarket with Cassandra Cain, played by Ella Jay Basco, where they fill their cart with items to steal.  The market is Fields Market in Canoga Park.  The store is a staple of film and television, appearing in such films as “Bird Box,” “Lady Bird,” and “Matchstick Men,” as well as such television shows as “Desperate Housewives,” “American Horror Story” and dozens more.  It has also been seen in countless commercials and music videos.

The Huntress, played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead, rides a motorcycle with Harley in tow on a pair of roller skates, as the two chase after Roman Sionis, played by Ewan McGregor.  These scenes were filmed at the former Hawthorne Plaza Shopping Center.  The plaza has been abandoned for years, with on-again, off-again plans for demolition.  In the meantime, it has become a popular spot for filming and photography.  It has been seen in such films at “Gone Girl,” “Minority Report” and “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift,” as well as the TV series “Westworld” and “Too Old To Die Young.”  The building is closed to the public and regularly patrolled by security, but much of of the outside is visible from the street.  In the film, it appears like the cars are driving down a very long stretch of road, but in reality, the chase scenes just shot over and over in front of the same buildings.
