Four Lions Filming Location - The Moor in Sheffield City Centre

As the movie comes to a close Omar (still dressed in his fancy dress marathon costume) finds himself on The Moor and bumps into Matt once again and borrows his phone before heading into the pharmacy for an explosive end to the film

The scenes were all shot on The Moor and some of the shops seen in the film next to Debenhams are no longer there

The Pharmacy where Omar goes in to cause an explosive finish is no longer there
It was just a few doors down from Debenhams department store which can be seen to the right of the photo
The whole block was flattened a few years ago and replaced with the huge new development that also now houses The Light and Primark

Fun bonus Fact - this area is the same one seen in the movie THREADS when the nuclear bomb drops near Sheffield!
