The interior of the Riverview Hotel was built on Universal's Stage 28, home to the still-standing original "Phantom of the Opera" set. The Riverview was built inside the massive opera house set. When the hotel's false elevator doors were removed for camera access, the view "across the hall" and through the 5th floor elevator shaft was of the gilded gold balconies of the old opera house.
