Masters of the Universe (1987)


Yes.... the one you've all been waiting for I know, Masters of the Universe.  Check out the Masters of the Universe movie blog for lots of great pics and info.  The live-action 1987 version of the film was shot mostly in Whittier, California.















Some screenshots...















The gymnasium was located many miles away at a school in Venice.   (This same school was featured in Slumber Party Massacre.)





UPDATE!   Not sure why it took me so long to post these pictures of the house and neighborhood.  First up is Courtney Cox's house...






Screenshots....







And the neighborhood from the final scene...

I loooove Evil-Lyn (Meg Foster)!

    2. Translation: "Could show that were destroyed with current photos and the season, I'm curious your site seems to be the only one who can do this then consider my request please. Ps.: Thanks for answering my comment Robert and answer this when you can"

      Not sure exactly what you're asking here...

  5. Any idea where to find the burger joint where Courtney Cox worked, or if it is even still standing? It has been used in a few other movies as well. You can spot it near the end of Smokey & The Bandit (even though a majority of that was filmed in Georgia), and it was also used for a scene in Christine (1983). The scene from Christine ended up on the cutting room floor, but you can see it on the DVD and blu-ray in the deleted scenes. I wouldn't be surprised if it were used in other movies as well.

    1. From what I can tell it was on Osborne Street and Foothill Blvd, although it was possible it was further up on Dronfield & Osborne.

    2. Wow, thanks for the info. Too bad it is no longer there. I tried to find it on historic aerials, but it's hard to tell what you're even looking at on those.
