    I regret that I never went to that cinema... but I think my father would have had a fit if I said I'd been there. He warned me about that one!

    The Eros Cinema on the very corner of Shaftesbury Avenue and Piccadilly Circus is the key building featured in the production. Sure R**LStreets has it as a profile?

    Sent being the operative word as the Brannigan scene in Piccadilly Circus involved a pillar box.

    I think it was used as an actual location in Brannigan (1975) which was before the John Landis film in 1981..

    I dont know if all the shots were filmed there but Piccadilly Circus was definately used. I remember an interview with Landis when he said it was the first time the landmakrk had been used as an actual location and not just a backdrop.

    I love that film. I remember enjoying the London location spotting particularly. The scenes in Tottenham Court Road tube station were special for me as I knew it very well... and it changed appearance dramatically shortly after - new mosaic tiling on many of the walls, by Eduardo Paolozzi IIRC. There were scenes on Hampstead Heath that were filmed very close to where my friend lived. Picadilly Circus - I often wondered if it had been done at Elstree or somewhere, but I read recently that all the shots were actually at the location - even the stunts with skidding buses, etc.
