Filming Heat

Michael Mann filmed several key scenes of the 1995 American crime film Heat at Bob's Big Boy® in Burbank.


Starring Val Kilmer (pictured), Robert DeNiro (pictured), and Al Pacino, the film is widely-regarded as Mann's best known work and one of the greatest movies made about Los Angeles.

With location manager, Janice Polley, Mann was able to film at 85 real Los Angeles locations. Fewer than 10 had ever been filmed before. Bob's Big Boy® in Burbank was lucky and honored to be a part of this Los Angeles film history.

"It's not just an action picture... the dialog is complex enough to allow the characters to say what they're thinking."Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times
