Where Rocky Got Hitched

Saint Thomas AquinasI just watched Rocky II for the first time in years. In it Rocky makes Adrian an honest woman, and the film makers showed the facade of a Church. I figured it had to be in Philly, but where? A little research revealed the place to be Saint Thomas Aquinas located at 1719 Morris Street (N.W. corner of 17th and Morris Sts.)

I would have shot the interior, but a wedding was going on, and I didn’t want to intrude. I will return one day with a better camera and a sunnier day.

    Pretty, and probably historic?

    I imagine. I have to delve into the history of this particular Church.
