Have you seen this court house?

I just watched Bruce Almighty, and noticed the court house briefly shown was probably the same as Back to the Future. So, I was wondering just how many movies this icon of Universal Studio's back-lot has been in.

I know of these:

To Kill a Mockingbird
Back to the Future Trilogy
Bruce Almighty

Anyone know of others?

I saw it during the Universal Studios Backlot Tram tour.

Me too. I love that Tram Ride. I dont remember what movies the set was in, but it was mentioned on the tour.

The courthouse on the Universal backlot was built for Back to the Future, so the likelyhood of it being used for films made some 20 years earlier is slim. Unless the Delorian was real too!

Groucho, are you telling me the Delorian is FAKE!??!

The court house was also seen in The Offspring's music video Why Don't You Get a Job? (or something similar to that title).

According to this site:


Courthouse Square: Here's a square with a famous past, present, and future. You've seen it in classic films like To Kill A Mockingbird, Back To The Future, and Back To The Future Part II, as well as contemporary comedies such as The Nutty Professor and Bruce Almighty.
