Twenty years ago, Eminem's 8 Mile gave the world a cinematic look into Detroit's hip-hop culture.

Despite its global release, 8 Mile is very much a local movie, featuring places and landmarks that, at the time, were mostly known only to Detroiters. It made references to Motor City culture and featured more than a few familiar faces; it's the film that everyone in the metro area knows someone who was in it or worked on it. It also arned Eminem his Oscar for Best Original Song and the film, and told everyone that Cranbrook was a private school.

On the 20th anniversary of film's release, here is a look at some of the people and places of 8 Mile, then and now.


  • Warren,
  • Oakland County,
  • Wayne County,
  • Downtown Detroit,
  • Concert,
  • Chin Tiki,
  • Big Proof,
  • WJLB,
  • St. Andrew's Hall

In the film: The Shelter

431 E. Congress St., Detroit

This one is tricky — technically, the Shelter is a very real music venue where Slim Shady actually did get his start rapping early in his career. However, all the scenes for the movie were actually shot in a set built at the Rivertown Warehouse District.

In real life: The Shelter

431 E. Congress St., Detroit

The real-life Shelter is still rocking in the basem*nt of the popular Saint Andrew’s Hall venue in Detroit. Both venues made the news earlier this year when the floor of Saint Andrew’s Hall started bending under the weight of fans during a Baby Keem concert, causing the show to be cut short and the city to order the venues to close for months for renovations. They are now back in action.

In the film: 8 Mile Mobile Court

20785 Schultes Ave., Warren

The trailer park Rabbit’s mom lived in was probably the most important location outside of the Shelter in this movie. It’s where Rabbit got into a heated argument with his mom’s boyfriend Greg, and where he was jumped by rival rap group Free World.

Today, the mobile home community is still open on Eight Mile and Ryan. Fun fact: If you look it up on Google Maps, it’s also tagged as “Eminem's Trailer Park.”

In the film: Lil’ Tic

One of the film’s plotlines is Rabbit’s road to redemption after choking in the opening battle scene at the Shelter. Rabbit loses to L.T., who in real life was one of Eminem’s close friends, Proof (who the character Future, played by Mekhi Phifer, was based on).

In real life: Proof

Besides being one of Slim Shady’s good friends and hype man, he was also a member of the group D12. In 2006, Proof was gunned down after an altercation over a game of pool. Fun fact: In his battle, Lil’ Tic says “L.T., that’s right, co*ck the heat and shoot ya, I’ll punish Rabbit or obsolete Future.” If you look at the first letter of each word in the last bar, it spells “Proof.”

In the film: Chin Tiki

2121 Cass Ave., Detroit

Did you even watch 8 Mile if you never yelled out “Ten freaky girls inside the Chin Tiki?” The former tiki bar and Polynesian-themed restaurant opened in 1966 and closed its doors in 1980, remaining abandoned until the 8 Mile filming began. In the film, it’s a favorite hangout of Eminem’s character Rabbit, likely inspired by Detroit’s former Stanley’s Mannia Café Chinese restaurant, which hosted rap battles in the ’90s.

In real life: Chin Tiki

2121 Cass Ave., Detroit

Due to interest in the film, previous owner Marvin Chin considered reopening the spot, but Olympia Development bought the building and demolished it in 2009 to make space for Little Caesars Arena. (It is now a parking lot.) Meanwhile, there are plans to revive the former Stanley’s Mannia Café as a new music venue.

No, she’s no longer rapping about working with steel and complaining about her short lunch break. In real life, Vanessa is played by the real rapper Miz Korona, one of Detroit’s most respected emcees.

In the movie: Parking Lot Rap Battle

Still embarrassed about choking during his battle at the Shelter, Rabbit and the Three One Third crew go to a more low-key battle in a parking lot. Rabbit redeems himself and performs a freestyle minutes before Free World shows up and a fight ensues.

In the film: A paintball target

13037 Mack Ave., Detroit

Early in the movie, we see Rabbit and his friends joyriding around the city of Detroit with a joint and paintball gun in tow. One of their targets was a large cow head on top of a restaurant.

In real life: Ira Wilson and Sons Dairy

13037 Mack Ave., Detroit
Well, that cow head is still on Detroit’s Eastside — sans paintball marks. The property is the former Ira Wilson & Sons Dairy shop. The store, which used the giant cow head as a marketing gimmick, was only open for less than a decade and closed in 1960 before becoming Dairy Ann, C&P Ice Cream, and, its final incarnation, a barbecue joint.
