This was pretty exciting, although they had the area pretty well sealed off.  When they were filming Telefon with Charles Bronson in town in 1976, one of the scenes took out the old Paris Gibson Junior High School, on the Central Avenue side, between 14th and 15th Streets.  See the school blown up “in a controlled demolition” in the movie trailer below.



  1. I remember seeing the smoke from the explosion…my sister and I were down at the river swimming. My other sister and my brother went to the old Paris Gibson. I went to the “new” one later. Thunderbolt & Lightfoot filmed near our house as well, a few years earlier.
