Jack Nicholson at the Brunswick Centre

Flashbak explains:
In the clip above, from around 29 minutes into Antonioni’s 1975 film The Passenger, Jack Nicholson is seen strolling along a concourse before jauntily tripping down a wide staircase of a new concrete building. The short scene was filmed at the recently completed Brunswick Centre in Bloomsbury in London. 
The staircase has now gone, demolished by Camden Council not long after the film was completed. The word ‘Centre’ in the name has also gone and the building, for a reason only known to some over-paid image consultants trying to make their jobs relevant, is now known as just ‘The Brunswick’.
