Push - Chris Evans (2009) - Peel Street, Central

We see Peel Street a couple of times during the film. The first time is at night when the surviving "sniffer", Agent Mack (played by The Strain's Corey Stoll), returns to his boss with the bad news that Kira has escaped. As the actors exit an alleyway you can see they emerge onto Peel Street (the yellow sign at the bottom was for the since closed Man Fa Hung Hotpot Restaurant).

The second trip to Peel Street is when Nick (Chris Evans) goes to the restaurant to confront the bad guys. The film makers want us to believe that the entrance to such a swish looking place is actually via an alleyway off Peel Street. I believe both scenes were actually filmed along the same stretch of Peel Street between Hollywood Road and Gage Street. Look closely and you'll see the same round lantern hanging in the shop front in both scenes.
