Despite most of the movie being set in Oakland, they did not actually film there, but used Vancouver, BC, instead. Too bad the filmmakers didn't contact the Oakland Film Commission who would have provided a lot of tax credits and incentives for them to instead shoot in the East Bay!

Still on the Embarcadero, that is not a cable car, but one of those buses made to look like one. Only tourists ride these.

Back on Market Street, approaching
the intersection of Mason and Turk.

Continuing from the previous picture, the car turns right on Turk Street. That's the Metropolis Hotel in the background with the Ambassador Hotel behind it.

We're now on Essex Street at Folsom Street,
approaching the Bay Bridge.

Now on the Bay Bridge, this tunnel passes through Yerba Buena Island. The exit here goes down to Treasure Island.
