You lived in LA back then?

That is where the fight scenes were filmed.

I know right! I couldn’t believe Stallone didn’t use the Spectrum

It would cost too much.

Ever notice the scenes in Philly are at night or early morning? That was so the crew could film a scene, load the trucks and get out before union workers showed up.

The only interior scenes shot was the pet store. Every other interior shot was filmed in LA.

Which was an actual pet store back in the day. It was still in business in 1990 or so.
