Rocky III (1982)

The 1983 film “Rocky III,” starring Sylvester Stallone, Hulk Hogan and Mr. T, was filmed in Philadelphia, New York City, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

Early in the film, a montage is shown of Rocky defending his title against challengers. The exterior of Radio City Music Hall in New York City is seen as one of the locations where he fights.


LOCATION: 1260 6th Ave, New York, NY 10020

The house where Rocky lives can be found in Los Angeles, California. It is located at Fremont Place in Hancock Park. Despite being a popular neighborhood for filming, Fremont Place is unfortunately one of the few gated communities in Los Angeles, making it inaccessible to the general public. Other films showcasing locations inside Fremont Place include “Rocky IV,” “Taken,” “The War Of The Roses,” “Zodiac,” “Gone Girl” and more. It is also a popular location for TV shows, such as “Monk,” “Prison Break, “The Mentalist,” “CSI: Miami,” “Rizzoli & Isles” and many more. Rocky’s house in this film is actually located directly across the street from the house used as his home in the next installment, “Rocky IV.”

LOCATION: 55 Fremont Pl, Los Angeles, CA 90005

The most iconic movie location from all of the “Rocky” films appears once again when a Rocky statue is unveiled at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.


LOCATION: 2600 Benjamin Franklin Pkwy, Philadelphia, PA 19130 (the actual steps face Spring Garden St)

It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia

For fans of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” it’s not much of a secret that the exterior location for the famed Paddy’s Pub is actually in Los Angeles, not Philadelphia.  The building is in a warehouse area of L.A., which is heavily used by film and television productions, as the area can easily stand in for a variety of different cities.  While the address of the building is on Mateo street, you’ll actually want to turn the corner onto Palmetto Street, in order to see the side of the building that is used as Paddy’s Pub.  Just look for the unmistakable high curb.


LOCATION: 544 Mateo St, Los Angeles, CA 90013

The back exit of Paddy’s Pub, which is frequently seen on the show, is at an entirely separate building, located a couple miles away in downtown Los Angeles.


LOCATION: Alley on 11th St, just east of S Broadway  (approximately 115 W 11th St., Los Angeles, CA 90015)

The gang visits Dennis and Dee’s mom’s house in numerous episodes, which is also located in Los Angeles.  The same house can be seen in “Pretty In Pink,” where James Spader’s character throws a party.
