    I think it was an 80's comedy. Something about nuclear missiles or maybe the "star wars" anti-missile program. I seem to remember a scene where someone is taken to the secret underground military complex, where the surface building is disguised as an abandoned diner. They work the soda fountain machine to reveal the elevator. The elevator falls comically fast and absurdly deep into the earth, to get to the operations center.

    I think there was a scene where the top side buildings transformed into something like (maybe) solar reflectors in order to (maybe) shoot missiles or satellites down. My memory about this is very hazy.

    Spies like us?

    I seemed to remember the training area was like that before they went to Siberia. Unless I am mixing movies together.

    Dangit, I own "Spies Like Us" and that's not it, so maybe I'm mixing up movie scenes. Thanks everyone for responding though.

    Maybe it was one of the "Men In Black" movies.

    That's what came in my head when I first read it.

    The elevator scene that \-V-/ posted is definitely the scene I was thinking of. So that memory is from Spies Like Us and my brain must have mixed it in with the other scene I remembered about the fake buildings or structures transforming into reflectors for some kind of beam weapon.
