The Dorchester from “Mannequin”

Dec 2nd, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I’ve made no secret of my love for Mannequin over the past few months.  As I’ve mentioned, my sole reason for heading to Philadelphia this past September was to stalk locales from the 1987 comedy, one of which was The Dorchester, the building where Jonathan Switcher’s (Andrew McCarthy) girlfriend Roxie (Carole Davis) lived.  (You can read my posts on Jonathan’s apartment here and the eatery where Jonathan and Roxie dined here.  And don’t worry, I will be writing an extensive article on Wanamaker’s department store […]

I have to admit that before I got the challenge I had never actually seen the movie, so this week I made a special trip to Blockbuster to rent it. After watching it I was in shock that I had somehow missed seeing this movie during the 80s – Pretty In Pink is pretty much right up […]
