Hyperion Bridge in "Who Framed Roger Rabbit"

The classic 1988 movie by Robert Zemeckis is mostly shot either in the studio or on location in Vancouver (?!) but at the end of this clip the movie shows Roger, Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins), and Benny the Cab ending up on Hyperion Bridge (starting at about 2:28).

Directed by Robert Zemeckis

Essay 

Written by David Kimbrough

At least some of the large bronze lamp posts astride the Hyperion Street bridge were stolen recently. Since the lamp posts were custom build ninety years ago they cannot be replaced.
