Predator 2 (1990)



Predator 2 was originally supposed to take place in New York City, which was probably a better choice.  But the most economical choice was LA of course.  First up is an opening shot of the skyline....

The shootout scene was shot on this street...

And some shots looking up the other side of the street...

The warehouse/factory building at the end of the street...

The spot where the helicopter lands...

Here is a spot where Danny is dropped off after the shootout at the precinct....

The "police administration" entrance (they were filming a commercial there on the day I dropped by)....

 Danny makes a phone call on this street...

Next up is the cemetery scene.  First up is a shot where Danny gets out of a car followed by a family in front of him.  The most legible gravestone  is purposely obscured by flowers, but that didn't stop me from finding it!

Annoying boy encounters the predator by this gravestone....

The tree where the predator is hiding....

Danny visits the grave of his fellow fallen officer here...

The post-subway scene was shot on this street...

The fire escape is gone on this building, but this is where Danny climbed up to chase the predator....

The building entry Danny drives through...

The Eastern building is featured prominently....

And finally the apartment buildings downtown.  Of course I couldn't get up there to get the actual shots (ok, I didn't even try), but here is the spot between the two buildings featured during the film's most memorable scenes....

    1. The main alley is Harlem Pl, just next to 111 W 7th Street in downtown LA
