Pet store where Rocky met Adrian demolished.

The filming locations in Philadelphia made Rocky uniquely authentic. It wouldn’t have been the same on a sound stage.

The pet shop scenes with Rocky and Adrian are one of my favorite moments in the film. They filmed in a real pet shop.

Tourists have visited it for decades. The building is finally getting torn down.

There’s a clip from Rocky in this article.

Talia Shire does such a great job portraying shy Adrian.

This photo of the store from last year indicates that the building’s time may have come. According to the article, it’s been unoccupied for a decade.
