Madonna: Borderline (1984)


If you know me, then you know I have two great loves... movie/tv locations and Madonna.   Every once a while, I combine them both (What It Feels Like For A Girl, La Isla Bonita, Open Your HeartMaterial Girl).


Below are some locations for her Borderline video.   First up is the beginning location under the bridge....

The same bridge in the background is where he walks down the stairs as well as the spot where the guy is watching from the top....

The second part of the video has changed a bit more.  The corner of the store has been redone and there is no longer a phone booth.   This is about two blocks from the Las Isla Bonita buildings...

  1. The pool hall/restaurant was El Guanaco. It was not on Lucas and 6th. It was on 6th and Alameda. A friend of mine's mother worked there. I remember seeing the video and recognizing the location because I passed it daily on the bus. It was torn down years ago and is now used for parking. The building next door is still there.
