All Night Long filming locations Part 28

I wasn't able to capture all the lockers in this shot because there is a wall directly behind me that wasn't there 30 years ago. At the time of filming they only had one large locker room for men. They added a wall to allow for a women's locker room.

All Night Long filming locations Part 23

For some reason, the fire chief was really interested in the communication equipment attached to the brick wall in this photo from the movie. Whatever it was, it's not there now. He wanted to know when the movie was filmed. I told him 1980. But he wanted to know the month that this scene was shot. I took a wild guess and said June. It was around that time. He even wanted to keep the photo. I wasn't going to complain. He was most accomodating to my request to photograph the premises.

All Night Long filming locations Part 20

The Italian restaurant in the movie has been completely redone as a bar. When I was there, the place was packed. Most of them must have been unemployed actors because while I'm walking around with my camera and comparing my photos with the location now, a couple of them said they wanted to be in whatever I was doing. Maybe they thought I was scouting locations for a potential film or photo shoot. There were a couple of wood-paneled columns that I could identify from the movie, but that was it. I didn't photograph them because of the crowd. The hallway above is about the only other thing I could find. The manager of the bar didn't know that they filmed All Night Long here and she was excited when I told her because her mother is a big Barbra Streisand fan.

All Night Long filming locations Part 19

In case you're wondering how in the heck did I find this location- Kevin Dobson told me. I also asked him about the anniversary scene where Barbra gets doused in milk, but he didn't remember where they filmed that scene. He also doesn't know where the loft is. Not that I'm complaining. If anyone out there knows, please let me know.

The block wall and fence between the properties messes up the shot.

All Night Long filming locations Part 17

I should start by saying I'm not 100% sure if this movie scene was shot on location or in the studio. However the bottom photo is the door to room #407 as it looks today (the room number is now off to the left outside the shot). Watching the movie, I get the impression that this was shot on location. The hallway was very tight and the doors appear in the same layout as it appears in the movie. If it was built on a sound stage the set designer could have created any type of interior he wanted. It wouldn't be necessary to recreate an exact duplicate of the real location.

I can tell you that the door does belong to a corner unit but I was not allowed inside as the room was occupied. The front desk lady escorted me up to this floor. She said that if the room was vacant she would have let me in. But it is one of the units with the rounded corner like in the movie. I would assume that the room would be recreated on a set. It would be tight squeeze to fit a whole crew inside a small hotel room and get all the shots from the different angles as they did. So if they went to the expense of building a set for the hotel room they probably included a recreation of the hallway.

So it's a toss-up.

All Night Long filming locations Part 16

The lady who was attending to the front desk didn't know that All Night Long was filmed there. She was newly arrived from Russia and had never heard of the movie. She didn't know who Gene Hackman was. . . . . . . .but she did know who Barbra Streisand was.
