Movie Locations You Can Actually Visit

OCP Headquarters in Robocop Dallas City Hall Texas

Who can ever forget the movie Robocop. The movie about a conscientious robotic cop named Murphy will forever live in the minds of the older generation as a movie with its fair share of thrills and excitement. The location for the famed Omnicorp Corporation also known as the dreaded OCP which invented Murphy is none other than the Dallas city Hall. The building itself as seen here in this picture stands quite tall and looks more like a work of surreal or abstract art. The stone colored building is an ideal spot to visit as it actually exists as a place of government administration.
