Then (1968) and now - HERVE ATTIA/ YOUTUBE/ REDDIT

Late last Summer we ended up at the Clarement pool, and the first thing out of our mouth was "They filmed Mrs. Doubtfire here. Over there -- that's where the run-by-fruiting happened."

Visiting a location from a movie you love is an interesting experience, seeing what's changed -- and stayed the same. And recently we came across On The Set : The Movie Filming Locations Channel, a project dedicated to revisiting those locations you've become familiar with by watching your favorite films over and over again.

Recently they visited San Francisco to film the locations of the movie -- with arguably the best-car-chase-ever -- Bullitt, which was shot in 1968. Check out what's changed in the last 45 years:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
