Has to be Blood Work.

From the script at http://www.dailyscript.com/scripts/blood_work.pdf

Quote
CABBIE: Hey! You gonna pay me or should I drive you somewhere else?

McCaleb strides over to the cab, gets in.

McCALEB: The nearest public library.

The Cabbie thinks a beat, then starts to pull away.
McCaleb looks across the street. The car is gone.


CUT TO:

INT. LIBRARY - COMPUTER SCREEN - DAY

McCaleb is in the research section. On screen, he calls
up the L.A. Times, accesses the search function. When it
asks for key words, McCaleb types: "robbery, ski mask,
shooting."
He hits enter and waits. As the computer works, McCaleb
dumps a handful of pills into the palm of his hand. As
he chases them down with a bottle of water, the computer
flashes a new screen.
Two matches to the key words. McCaleb hits "print."

That's exactly right, Lilly ... except that in the film as shot, McCaleb isn't searching the L.A. Times archive, he's searching NewsLibrary.com, limited to "California." The same search of the same source today yields 643 hits! You can try it yourself, here:

Cool link, thanks.  I happened upon Connelly's book Blood Work in our coffee room at work today, but couldn't find if that scene was in the book or not.

Yep, I'll be back with a new one soon. O0

Got it, Lilly ... the La Bahia Apartments in Santa Cruz, Calif. (Sudden Impact's "San Paulo").



Quote
SHARP FUMES of ammonia-laced cleanser pierce the stale, musty air filling the hallways of Beach Street's La Bahia Apartments. Moving crews girdled in thick black belts drag new mattresses into the small rooms, preparing for hordes of young workers arriving to operate rides at The Boardwalk for the summer. If UCSC is Uncle Charlie's Summer Camp, the old hotel, which serves as low-income housing the other nine months of the year, now seems to be gearing up for the camp counselors.

Winding down a staircase and through one of the arched passageways, I breathe gratefully, inhaling the fresh air filling La Bahia's outdoor courtyard. A fountain bubbles between a blossoming flower garden and the raised Patio de los Mirtos, a tree-filled haven known during its glory days as Court of the Laurels. Surrounded by the timeless courtyard of La Bahia, built by the Seaside Company in 1926, I half-expect to see the ghosts of film legends Mary Pickford, Cary Grant and Douglas Fairbanks dancing in the gardens. All frequented the Casa Del Rey hotel, a majestic multi-lot hotel that included La Bahia, known for its exotic architecture, luxurious suites and sprawling beaches.

Across from the colorful central courtyard, yellow caution tape wraps around makeshift wooden beams that support a crumbling walkway. This and the cracking paint, stained walls and rusty metal gratings protruding from the broken ceiling hint at how hard the years have been on La Bahia. By 1983, La Bahia had fallen far enough into disrepair to be used as the seedy hotel where Clint Eastwood's Dirty Harry stays while tracking a serial killer in Sudden Impact.

http://www.metroactive.com/papers/cruz/06.30.99/la-bahia-9926.html

The above is from 1999. Apparently there is a plan in the works to replace this historic structure with a real hotel!

I'll be back with a new one shortly ...

It's not Tightrope. I know the answer, but since this has only been up for a mere three months, I'll give the rest of you lot the rest of the day to come up with it. ;)

Well it was a great guess.

That one was up a while so you can post a new one even though the scene wasn't mentioned.
