THE ABYSS

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA
Filming Locations —

City and County of San Francisco: A scene that was edited out of the original release but restored to the Special Edition included a tidal wave about to crash through San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge (as well as Santa Monica, New York, Malibu, Miami, and Petrapavlovsk). The following is an excerpt from the script:

EXT. SAN FRANSISCO — DAY                                               231
LONG LENS SHOT — The Golden Gate Bridge and the hills of the city, the buildings downtown. Beyond, FILLING FRAME is the wall of sea green which defies our comprehension. The image shakes with the THUNDER.
                                 THE ABYSS, by James Cameron, 2 August 1988
 
Thank you to Leslie Walter for the capture of the Golden Gate Bridge picture.
