    Re: Huge Fire at Universal Studios, CA

    I think your correct. I heard that they were going to turn that area into housing in a couple of years.

    Seinfeld restaurant facade was filmed there but it was filmed in a couple of other places. The Real Real restaurant is in New York and is called "Toms Restaurant. Apparently in each shot they cut "Toms" out. Many of the exterior shots were from the original one in New York.

    I think they may rebuild the facades and they will, most likely, burn down again in the future.

    Re: Huge Fire at Universal Studios, CA

    Someone from work told me this while I was at work about Universal Studios caught on fire.. This is such sad news . It's a wonder how it got started? I remember this very co-worker of mine said that "Back to the Future" got burnt down. She said other things as well.

    I have nevered been to Universal Studios before. But I am sadden by the news. How about the New Simpsons Ride or where Beetlejuice did his show? How about them?

    They mean the Set from the movie burned. The Back to the Future Ride (Now the Simpsons Ride) and the beatle Juice show (Now Fear Factor?) are in the theme park itself and are not effected.

    Re: Huge Fire at Universal Studios, CA

    Well, it looks like something valuable was lost in the fire.

    1000's of original Decca, MCA, ABC recording masters from the last century including a wide range of music from Bing Crosby and the Andrew Sisters to Judy Garland and The Carpenters.

    That's very sad. Why don't they have all the valuable things in a vault?? It is not like this is the first fire at USH.

    Fire continues to burn 12 hours after it started
    Low fire pressure lead to pumping from lakes and ponds
    7 firemen and one deputy injured
    several explosions, latest injuries apparently caused by propane tank

    Sorry,Still sad & sorry to hear about this news.
    I couldn't truly hear what exactly what she meant about Universal Studios. I was still busy at work. I remember her mention stuff like "Back to the Future";. So I assumed rides. She must of meant, "Back to the Future" old set, maybe.

    Re: Huge Fire at Universal Studios, CA

    I was thinking today that if Universal wants to make a few lemons into lemonade they could use this for a movie.

    I mean the damage is terrible but what's done is done and they do have some real fire damage to use. They've got film of the property before, during the fire and after.

    Might be interesting to use what they got.
