This week for Georgetown Time Machine, GM checks out a behind the scene photo from the epochal film St. Elmo’s Fire.
The movie was filmed in Georgetown in the fall of 1984. This shot shows the cast sitting in a Jeep CJ between filming. They’re parked at the corner of P and 31st. Seated are Rob Lowe, Mare Winingham, Emilio Estevez, Andrew McCarthy, Judd Nelson, Ally Sheedy, and Demi Moore, a veritable quorum of the Brat Pack.
This set up appears in the film. Here they are driving down P St.:
Later they’re shown on O St.:

Fun fact: the film came out June 1985. By November DC adopted its first seat belt laws. Coincidence???
