The Philadelphia building that housed pet store featured in the Rocky films and which later became a tourist attraction – was demolished. Sylvester Stallone as boxer Rocky Balboa in that store courted his eventual wife, Adrian, played by Talia Shire.
The shop appeared in five out of the seven Rocky films, including Rocky, Rocky II, Rocky V, Rocky Balboa, and Creed. Later, it was a popular place that has been visited by fans of Rocky.
Guide tours dedicated to the cult film Ben Kaplan told that on Thursday he led a group of tourists to this shop and he discovered construction crews tearing the building down.
The building which was once a real store for pets is been empty for several years.
