I think I remember seeing some nice parking garage stuff in One Hour Photo.
Also, there was a whole episode of Seinfeld that took place in a parking garage, but of course it's not a feature.

"All the President's Men" has parking garage scenes between BOB WOODWARD and DEEP THROAT. They have a very murky look and a paranoid feeling about them - of course.

How about the meetings with Deep Throat in All the President's Men? Nice and dark. I worked on a film that had a parking garage scene at night, and the green fluorescent overhead lighting gave a real good eery atmosphere.

edit: just one minute after the former poster!

"All the President's Men" is the classic and most popular one, obviously :)

The only other one that comes to mind right now is a scene from "The Usual Suspects", when Baldwin shoots two guys at the same time.

Isn't there like a slasher movie out right now where the entire thing takes place in a parking garage "P2" I think, something like that? B)

"THX-1138" uses parking structures extensively but not as garages, rather as sterile architecture in the future.
