This was filmed in Fort Worth, Texas, maybe some in Waxahachi?
3 July 2017 | by quecoisSee all my reviews

So sorry to correct Mr. Moeller, but this was filmed in Fort Worth, Texas. I had always bragged about the Belknap Bridge on Belknap Street coming down from downtown at the end of it was where Winona got off from the bus. Then, she crossed over to the other side to the garage with the upstairs apartment where her mother lived with the boyfriend. The garage is still there, but I was sad to see the apartment knocked down. The beauty shop is still there that the mother had and the club is "The Stagecoach." This was filmed in the 2400 block of Belknap Street.
