St Elmo's Fire | 1985
College kids come to terms with the real world in Joel Schumacher’s archetypal 80s bratpack movie.
The locale is the studenty area of Georgetown, northwest Washington DC, and much of the movie was filmed around here.
The bar exterior seen in the film is a couple of blocks east, the now-closed Third Edition, which stood at 1218 Wisconsin Avenue at M Street.
You might reasonably assume that the university is Georgetown University, but the university authorities put paid to filming on their premises (though they had no problem with The Exorcist). The campus seen is the University of Maryland, College Park, about ten miles northeast of DC, in Maryland.
More scenes were filmed at a house on Prosser Dam Road, Truckee, central California.
