Map: Philly Landmarks Featured in the New Rocky Movie Creed

The seventh installment of the Rocky series, Creed, debuted last week and has garnered rave reviews and Oscar buzz.

Creed tells the story of Adonis, the son of Rocky's opponent Apollo Creed who comes to Philly to train under Rocky. Much of the movie was shot in the city, as seen by the various landmarks featured in the film, including the famous Art Museum steps and the Italian Market. But some newcomers make appearances, too, such as the Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk.
