And Jason Mitchell stars as Eazy-E. Paul Giamatti as their manager, Jerry Heller.

First stop on the Straight Outta Compton tour is the LA Riots scene. If it looks familiar that’s because it was filmed around the old Valley Plaza located in North Hollywood, California.

Location # 2 on the tour is Skateland USA in Compton, California. The actual Skateland in Compton had been closed for many years by the time production had started on the movie. And since it was gutted and and vertually condemed, the filming had to be done in Glendale, California at the Moonlight Rollerway.

Since the actual Skateland USA was no longer available for shooting, the production team went about 20 miles north to use The Moonlight Rollerway in Glendale, California.
