Sly is in Philadelphia still working hard on filming, “Creed 2”. Of course, during break of filming, Sly had to do some reminiscing about the history of Rocky by visiting some old filming locations. See Sly’s instagram for more.
Sadly, Mick’s gym is closed down and Adrian’s Pet Shop got demolished like last year.
I can’t blame Sly for wanting to visit old Rocky filming locations and reminisce the past. Rocky means a lot to Sly and you can tell that he LOVES playing the character. When Sly filmed the very first Rocky, he was pretty young back then. Sly was just 30 years old when he filmed the first Rocky. Back then, he wasn’t a rich man at all like other movie stars. Now after that first Rocky movie, Sly is a superstar and icon in Hollywood. He did it all himself really.
One day I would love to visit Philadelphia so I can see all the Rocky locations with my own eyes. I would especially love to try running the art museum stairs and see the Rocky statue!
