Unfortunately Screen Play Video does not actually exist (partly because no one rents videos anymore, ever) but you can still pose with the exterior if you’re ever in Wilmington, NC. It’s currently a hair salon called N Salo, but the entryway looks pretty similar to its Capeside counterpart.

Here it is as it appeared on the “Creek”:

Warning: I haven’t been back in a while, so I can’t promise this is exactly how you’ll find it. But I plugged the address into Google Maps and the street view shows this:

So I think it’s still pretty “Creek”-tacular!
