For six weeks in the Summer of 2011, the Rock of Ages movie filmed in Miami at the intersection of North Miami Ave and 14th St.
The movie starring Tom Cruise, Julianne Hough and Alec Baldwin completely transformed this derelict intersection and made it to look like Los Angeles' busy Sunset Strip circa 1987.
When walking around the set it felt as if you were transported back in time to the 80's. Gas and food prices were cheap and a magazine rack featured many magazines from the 80's.
Many of the buildings that were used for the set have been torn down over the past three years. However, one of the buildings that was used as the Roxy has been completely renovated.
The Rock of Ages movie premiered in July 2012.
