Re "Taking a Pasting" (Nov. 19): While attending the opening of the Museum of Contemporary Art in 1986 with several friends who had works in the museum, we noticed posters plastered all around the Temporary.

You've heard of filmmakers shooting day for night, or creating New York streets on Burbank back lots. But Atlanta for Detroit? A key scene in "RoboCop 3" was shot recently on Atlanta's landmark Auburn Avenue, the street where Martin Luther King Jr. gave the speech that launched the Freedom March. The church where King preached, and the memorial honoring his life, are also on Auburn, as are such familiar--to Atlantans--structures as the Tabor and Masonic Building/Prince Hall.
