Chef's Diner, Where "The Blob" Was Filmed
Remember the scene in the original 1957 movie, "The Blob," where Steve McQueen and pals make a desperate stand in a diner against the giant alien jello? The diner in Downington was formerly known as "Cadillac Diner, Home Of The Blob." The new owners of "Chef's" choose not to continue the association. It's not much of a loss, as this diner was not the one in the movie. The one that was, the Downingtown Diner, was reportedly moved to Hollywood around 1960 to be used as a set in other movies.
