Court Orders Russian Sub Removed from Providence River
February 3, 2017
Providence Journal: A Rhode Island court has ordered a scrapyard to remove the remnants of a Russian submarine once used as a set for a Harrison Ford movie from the Providence River.
The hull of the submarine, known as Juliett 484, rests mere feet from the shore in Providence.
After the Cold War, the sub was sold and used as a restaurant and vodka bar in Helsinki, Finland, and as a set for the 2002 Ford movie “K-19: The Widowmaker.” Then it became a floating museum. It sank during a nor’easter in 2007.
