In how many films with Alain Delon can you find this building? 3 or 4?

Reminds me a little of the John Andrews building in Canberra, Australia (my hometown) AKA The Spaceship. Still standing, thankfully:

Nice sign! Didn't that belong to an imploded hotel?

Nice, I didn't know about that one.

And yeah, it's gone... They just didn't want to pay for its renovation.

Yep, the Stardust. A Vegas and mid-mod classic. It's inspiration was the Atomic Age and the nuclear bombs they used to detonate in the desert outside Vegas. People used to watch them for entertainment!











Tragically no longer with us. It was imploded in 2007. The Echelon was due to open on the site but the Financial Crisis killed it. Now Australia's Crown Casino is due to start construction next year.

The googie-style lowrise is/was gorgeous! It screams 1950s optimism.
