Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut:

Go to TOC for this film ( (which has also a statement on purpose and manner of analysis and a disclaimer as to caveat emptor and my knowing anything authoritatively, which I do not, but I do try to not know earnestly, with some discretion, and considerable thought).

The Pink Pussycat

Next to the Pink Pussycat

After the Greenwich anchor of 3rd and Sullivan in Eyes Wide Shut, Kubrick has Bill walking through a set version of the village. He follows this with a green screen of Bill walking past The Pink Pussycat, which was an easy place to find. However, there is something interesting going on as far as a difference between the street we see in the film and what we see on Google maps.

You'll notice in the above grab from the film, that we don't seem to have an open road behind Bill, instead we have a T road with it ending at a building, and the taxis turn left at that point. In Google Maps we see no such building, nor does it look like there has ever been such a building there. So was it a facade put up for the shoot?
