"No Easy Way Out" Tunnel

Seen in: Rocky IV


S. Hill Street & W. 2nd Street
Los Angeles, CA 90012

There’s no shortcut home.

Featured in literally hundreds of automobile commercials, films and television shows through the years, the Los Angeles tunnel is a highly recognizable L.A. landmark, and hey, it makes the perfect place for Rocky to really let the engine of his Lamborghini Jalpa go during the dramatic “No Easy Way Out” montage. The ceiling of this quarter-mile tunnel is covered with reflective tiles which make it an ideal cinematic backdrop.

Rocky approaches the tunnel driving roughly west along 2nd Street and enters from the Hill Street entrance.

If you’re planning on racing through here, be forewarned the tunnel is MUCH shorter than it appears on film – get your engine going and before you know it, you’ve run out of road!
