Of course we all know that THE TOWERING INFERNO takes place in San Francisco. But where exactly did they shoot the exterior scenes ? If you visit San Francisco, you can still make a ride in the "scenic elevator" !
I have to thank Paul St. Pierre and Kurt (Mce9999) for their information.
  • Outside plaza and building entrance: The Bank of America building on California street.
  • Lobby and scenic elevator: The Hyatt Regency Hotel.
  • Roger Simmons' house: 2898 Vallejo Street.
  • The basic storage tank set: The central heating and air conditioning plant for all of Century City (the palatial business district adjacent to Twentieth Century-Fox).
For some examples, have a look here: norcalmovies (not online anymore?).
Who can help me making the list complete ?!
