" The Great Los Angeles Earthquake: The Big One " was, actually, filmed in 1990. It, partially, shows the " Century City " towers (approx. 3:49 min mark) AND the rest of L.A. being destroyed in a, magnitude, 9+ Earthquake. Alert: The following link from YouTube is an 8 minute disaster scene.....

" My pleasure! " Movie venues, finally, became more diverse from the mid-90's to the present as independent producers became more influential in the Entertainment industry. The, Motion Picture, industry still gravitates around New York City and Los Angeles, mainly, due to business issues and Their vast availability of resources (ex: state-of-the-art film studios, highly-trained professional actors and technicians, and ideal climates/settings).

" Asteroid " prominently features several cities, including Dallas and Kansas City, in varying circumstances of Catastrophe. And, a 2004 (CBS) TV movie, " Category 6: Day of Destruction " focuses on Chicago during a, natural, disaster.


Farewell!

Conrad & Island Shangri-La (Pacific Place)


Wan Chai's waterfront has several twins like the Great Eagle Centre and the Immigration and Revenue Towers.



We can consider the IFC as twins too
