Woodrow Roosevelt High School!

Post by LA Batfan »

I was on the 20th Century Fox lot the other day, and I thought you might want to see what the front of Dick Grayson's alma mater, Woodrow Rooselvelt High, looks like now ...

Cool. Thanks :)

What else is still at Fox that is recognizeable besides the high school and the mansion? Since they filmed on 3 different lots, it sure gets confusing. LOL.

Cool, Ralph! Thanks! I've been over there a few times over the past couple of years and didn't know about that.

Great stuff! Fun to see what the backlot sets look like now.

I never realized the façade for the museum was also the high school. Awesome find. I will watch more closely as these episodes air.

I acknowledged a few years ago that these were most likely the same building, but I was always convinced that it was over at WB. This would explain why we never saw anywhere similar enough whilst wandering the lot.

Ah, those were the days, when a criminal's most nefarious crime was ruining student morale by luring them with easy money and gimmicked milk machines.

Any idea if the building from Scat Darn Catwoman is still there? From theTo The Batpoles site:
There is a long drawn out chase scene along the roof of the Fox studio offices before Catwoman falls to her death(?) again in the water below.

That rooftop is part of some offices over at the Culver Studios lot and not Fox. That's still there and can be seen from one of the side streets(sorry, no photos.)

Oh cool, thanks Scott! It gets confusing as to what is located where since they used 3 studios. I was actually looking at that building at Culver with Bing's birdseye view a few weeks ago when I was looking at the mansion, but since the To The Batpoles site said it was at FOX, I thought maybe it was just a similar building and not the same one.
