The parking lot at Paramount Studios seen in this image from 1982 has another function, which will explain the giant painted backdrop behind it.  The lot is several feet below ground level, allowing it to be filled with water, allowing crews to film complicated scenes that would be more expensive and/or dangerous to shoot on the ocean, a lake or river.  Along with rain and wind machines, the backdrop is there to provide an appropriately brooding sky to match the drama occurring below.
