Assault on Precinct 13 (1976)

John Carpenter's underrated cult classic and ode to Rio Bravo, Assault on Precinct 13 has it all - endless hails of gunfire, an incredible score and an unintentionally hilarious femme fatale.  It also has one of the most shocking scenes in film history involving a future Real Housewife of Beverly Hills.  Got a smoke?

Assault on Precinct 13 was filmed in Los Feliz, Venice, Studio City and Los Angeles, CA 

Location: Ethan Bishop's House
Address: 1957 N Alexandria Avenue, Los Feliz, CA

Location: The Jail
Address: 419 N Avenue 64, Los Angeles, CA Lincoln Heights Jail 

Location: The Precinct
Address: 685 Venice Boulevard, Venice, CA

This was also Brandon's DUI jail on Beverly Hills, 90210 (1990-2000)

Location: The Parking Lot
Address: Ventura Boulevard between Fruitland and Riverton Avenues, Studio City, CA

This has not been confirmed, but this is believed to be the location of the parking lot across from the police station.

Location: The Ice Cream Truck Street
Address: 11601 S Berendo Street, Los Angeles  between 117th and 115th Streets

This area has changed a lot since the movie was shot and the 105 freeway was built, but the ice cream truck scene was filmed around here.
