Was at a wake today and found out the Funeral home was used to film a scene in Flags of our Fathers. They had part of the wall covered with photos of Clint Eastwood along with the cast and crew. They also had an album with more photos. Pretty cool.

As most of you know , have also been to the Chicago train station where Dark Knight was filmed :)

Several of the Bridges of Madison County, as well as the cafe featured in the film and the farm house where Meryl Streep's character lived.
The Field of Dreams
Road where the airplane crashed in "U.S. Marshals" and the barbecue restaurant where they gather afterward.
Convenience store and courthouse in the little-seen "Poor White Trash."
Several Chicago locations from "The Blues Brothers."
Football field from the movie version of "Friday Night Lights."
Cave-in-Rock (river pirates hangout) from "How the West Was Won."
Plantation house from "Interview With a Vampire."

Just a few, but pretty much anyone passing thru has been to these spots:
- cemetery from Assassins (while filming)
- deception pass bridge (The Ring)
- an older Jeff Bridges film on Hwy 2 (WA state)- there's a gas station/subway/McD's there now - anyone know?

Walking from the train to school, I'd walk through two or three locations from The Dark Knight. I don't really seek out movie locations, though. Even when I was in Red Bank, NJ, I didn't look up the places they shot Clerks. I'm sure the guy working there is sick of tourists.

I did my own Back to the Future locations trip back in 2009. That was fun.

I grew up not far from Niagara Falls and had been to a lot of locations from Bruce Almighty that were filmed there and not in Hollywood. Also have been to All-High Stadium a few times growing up, which a scene from The Natural was filmed. Both of these were just cases of me living in the area and not seeking them out.

Not so much visited as happened to be around:

The finale of the James Garner movie Tank was filmed at the intersection of Highway 166 and Fulton Industrial Boulevard just outside Atlanta, I used to drive by there every day.

Also some miles outside Atlanta, a square in Covington was used to film a biplane landing / crashing in movie that I don't remember, but I'm sure someone here does, I think it was one of Burt Reynolds's. I was there early the morning they did the stunt, but couldn't stick around to watch it.

The Conyers/Covington area has been quite the place for TV productions since the late 1970s, some of the Dukes of Hazzard was filmed there. The opening stunt of the General Lee twisting through the air was done on the campus of Oxford College, part of Emory University. Later on, In the Heat of the Night did a lot of shooting there, and other projects gravitated to the area. I saw Dub Taylor shooting a commercial for Golden Flake Cheese Curls, which Dub memorably pronounced "Cheese Cuuuurrrrls". I was also impressed by his willingness to do take after take, putting the product into his mouth and chewing, and after the take was done, spitting the orange mouthful out into a bucket held by a helpful PA.

Many scenes from Driving Miss Daisy were filmed in and around Atlanta, but the only ones I really recognized were around the Little Five Points district, a hippie/bohemian area, where I used to frequent the Wax n' Facts record store (still there all these decades later). What was once the Ellis Theater (now the Variety Playhouse) can be seen in the background when Hoke makes a call from a phone booth, and the Piggly Wiggly grocery store was the nearby Sevananda natural foods market.

Many, many locations around Atlanta have been used in scores of films, but these are the ones I remember most.

Been to Austria and saw a lot of the locations for Sound of Music. Seems Salzburg hates that film despite the tourists it brings them. Being in Cleveland I've seen some of the Avengers locations. Though not a classic, I followed the film crew of Double Dragon for a few days for an article I did for Cinefantastique. Highlight was Alyssa Milano tightly sitting next to me when I interviewed her! And like many folks have been to Times Square and other popular New York locations that have made countless appearances in films. Also been to the mall in Toronto where The Silent Partner was shot. I loved that flick.

Live in a borough of of NYC, so many hundreds of locations.

A lot on Staten Island as well, funniest one is from Easy Money. When Rodney Dangerfield was looking to get some food late at night and stopped at a diner, they turned out the lights just as he approached. He looked up and saw a sign "OPEN 23 HOURS" That was the old Centre Diner, and they were really open 23 hours a day. It's changed hands & names several times and no longer has that sign, but the diner is still there.

From 1975 to 1977, when I was a poor art student at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, my wife and I would occasionally go out to mall in nearby Monroeville, PA. We would eat, walk around, window shop, and (when we could afford it) go to a movie at a nearby theater.

In the autumn of '78, we went back to visit an art school friend and meet his wife, while attending a convention at a hotel just outside the mall. While the wives shopped and visited, we went to the con and got to meet guys like Forrest J. Ackerman, Tom Savini, and George Romeo.

Romero told interesting stories about the difficulty of filming Dawn of the Dead at the Monroeville Mall. Like not always having splattered blood and guts effects cleaned up in time... before a group of local coronary patients would show up before store hours to walk around inside the mall for exercise.

I just came back from a friend's place. He lives on 3rd and Grand in DTLA. They filmed a lot of the Dark Knight Rises and parts of Amazing Spiderman right outside his building.

The scenes involving the Batwing were all on that street.

I was just thinking of starting a thread like this, where we can post photos of places we've visited. The idea came to me when I visited a place last month that I never thought or dreamed of visiting. I was on vacation in Switzerland last month. I was a 007 geek growing up, and watched all the Bond movies at a young age. One of the most memorable scenes for me was when I was watching On Her Majesty's Secret Service when we see a flyover view of Schilthorn-Piz Gloria. It just looked so majestic, amazing, and exotic - it looked like a nice resort / hideaway nestled high atop the snow in Switzerland. Of course, I had no clue what the place really was when I saw it on TV for the first time.... it being "just another" ski resort that people could visit. I didn't think it was possible to visit the place....... until last month while on vacation, in my hotel room in Bern poring over a map of Switzerland figuring out where else I could visit... and saw the words "Schilthorn-Piz Gloria" on the map. Bingo! I knew I HAD to go there and make this dream come true! I finally got there, and it was very memorable. It really is just a ski stop in the winter. It's the highest stop in a ski resort area serviced by an air cable-car. Even though I don't ski, I spent a relaxing couple of hours up there checking out the view, having a coffee, and taking some photos. They also have a room with some 007 stuff showing photos from OHMSS as well as a 6-7min video clip showing scenes from the surrounding mountain/countryside and from the movie. I told one of the locals there I was a big 007 fan, and he told me I should also check out the place where the bobsled track used to be from the movie (it no longer exists). In the summer, the place is good for hiking, with plenty of Swiss mountain cows grazing along the trail.

Anyway, here are some photos:

Bush Stadium in Indianapolis -- my high school participated as extras in Eight Men Out (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eight_men_out).We moved around several times that day to provide coverage for a couple of scenes. There were cardboard cutouts of people in the upper seats too. Ah, movie magic. ;)

Did you...you know...have sex in that position and ask a friend to walk in on you?

I did visit several of the wineries that were used for scenes in Sideways, as well as the "The Hitching Post". We were going to eat there but it was crowded, and they gave seating preferences to locals so we left.

One of my best friends writes the Horror's Hallowed Grounds articles for HorrorHound magazine, so I've been lucky enough to go with him to more locations than I can post right now.

But a few of the coolest...

mall from Dawn of the Dead (and we got to walk around in security areas where most people can't go)
airport from Dawn of the Dead
cave entrance from The Lost Boys
Nancy's house from Nightmare on Elm St.
numerous locations from all the Halloween films
the church from The Fog
motel from Terminator

By this summer, a lot, since they film a good chunk of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES here (Got to be an extra in the football stadium scene). Oh, and I've been to the Monroeville Mall (Dawn of the Dead) 100s of times (even was part of a tour once led by Tom Savini).

I'm surprised no one's posted the art museum steps in Philly...that's the one movie location that's probably worth the trip, just so you can say you ran up the same steps as Rocky Balboa.

When I was in high school, our band went to London to be in a thing there. One night we and all the other kiddos got whisked away to a shindig in a meeting hall looking location in Westminster. I sat in the place, lookng around and thinking it was oddly familiar. Finally, I looked up at the speakers balcony and saw, on either side of it, two very clear small paintings of marching hammers and realized it was the location of Bob Geldof's Nazi-esque speech as Pink in Pink Floyd:The Wall. The name of the place, according to IMDB, is the Royal Horticultural Halls & Conference Centre. Quite a thrill as a 17 year old. :)

A ton around Boston and Mass, living here and everything, but the only special trips I made to filming locations was a 2006 trip to the Monroeville Mall, which was amazing, and I stayed in the Bonaventure Hotel in LA, mostly due to Midnight Madness but it's been in a ton of movies. While in LA I hit up a lot of places, but my favorites were the houses from Halloween and Nightmare on Elm St.

the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I grew up 1 mile away from where the house originally was. They've since moved it to the Texas Hill Country and made a bed and breakfast out of it. Also, the county road (Co. 172) that went right in front of the house was also where they filmed a scene with Leonardo DiCaprio and Johnny Depp walking down it. I actually saw from a distance them filming it, but had no idea until years after it was from Gilbert Grape.

I visited the carnival in Santa Cruz, California where they filmed a lot of The Lost Boys. It was closed when I was there, but you could still walk around most of it.

I saw the carousel that Kiefer Sutherland and his gang were on in the beginning, the entire boardwalk area and the beach where they had the motorcycle chase. Also, the parking lot where the cop gets attacked by the vampires is where I parked. The dummies that were on some of the sky chairs in the opening credits are still sitting in the sky chairs (I was there in 2010). Many of the stores or attractions you could see in the opening credits and even in the background of many shots still were there intact.

I found a website where they compared stills from the movie to the actual location sites and I tried to stand and take pictures from exactly where the actual camera was while filming the movie. I know, I know...

The Taos Rio Grande Gorge Bridge. It's in Midnight Run, Natural Born Killers, Wild Hogs, Twins, and lots of TV shows.

It's such a pretty bridge. Too bad the state wants to cover it with chain link fence, to keep people from jumping off it.

I'm from the Twin Cities, MN. I lived a few blocks from the house where they filmed Grumpy Old Men.

Also road the same roller coaster in the same seats at Mall Of America as the Charlie and Fulton did in Mighty Ducks 2.

Drove by the Mickey's Diner many times where Mighty Ducks with filmed too.

While in San Francisco, many locations from "Vertigo". Also "Tales of the City", "Interview with A Vampire", and "Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)".

"Frogs" (1972):Point Washington, Florida: Eden Garden's State Park. The mansion.

"The Exorcist" (1973): Washington DC. The infamous outdoor stairs.

"Revenge of the Cheerleaders" (1976): Cabazon, California: Large dinosaur statues. Now built up like a little theme park. When I was there back in 1987, it was just the two dinos and lots of desert.

"The Avengers": Downtown Cleveland, OH.

Me too... I was so happy to be there that I got a bit teary-eyed. Half-way around the world, I didn't know any German, but got the right train and bus connections and made my way 9000ft up the mountain to visit the place.

It really is a spectacular place. The front side of the resort has the ski slopes, but the back is a sheer cliff face that just goes straight down... looking over the railings was a bit nauseating. The slopes are marked for advanced skiiers too; I imagine it was not easy to do the stunts around there.

I geeked out a bit by playing the "Escape From Piz Gloria" track from my phone when I was in the room with the poster boards (the OHMSS soundtrack is permanently stored on my cell phone). People probably thought I was a bit weird.

session 9. It's a closed down(for the most part) supposedly haunted mental hospital in Danvers, MA. We used to trespass and play basketball on the court they had there in my late teens/early 20s. Wandered the halls once, nothing to report.

The good son. The Macauly Culkin flick. Ive been near the place in Rockport, MA where the mom drops him off the rocks.

Some Tarzan flick from the 1950s filmed at Silver Springs Park in Florida. They still have sunken items from the movie in the springs.

Grown ups. The "I want to get chocolate wasted" scene was filmed at Woodman's restaurant in Essex, MA. Been there dozens of times.

Mrs. Winterbourne. Shirley Mcclaine, Brendan Frasier and probably the biggest name at the time Ricki Lake. I was a shift supervisor at Burger King at the time around 19-20 years old and they(not the actors) stopped at our restaurant and ordered like 60 breakfast sandwiches.

There's probably dozens of other places Ive been where movies have been filmed. Fenway park etc.

Did you...you know...have sex in that position and ask a friend to walk in on you?

I did visit several of the wineries that were used for scenes in Sideways, as well as the "The Hitching Post". We were going to eat there but it was crowded, and they gave seating preferences to locals so we left.

Nah, but my wife got mad and hit me with a motorcycle helmet ;)

We went by The Hitching Post also, then walked around Solvang. Looking through our photos later on we saw that we had eaten lunch in one of the restaurants used in the film as well.

We stayed at the hotel from the movie Cedar Rapids for my sis-in-law's wedding. FWIW, the hotel is in Ann Arbor, MI.

My other sis-in-law lives in Chicago, and saw much of the filming of Transformers 3.

Martha's Vineyard every summer. The location for Jaws.

The opening scenes of Transformers 2 was shot in the old steel plant in my town. It was quite the extravaganza having a Michael Bay production going on.

Mohonk Mountain House - the location used in The Road to Wellville. Creepy place but awesome.

Greatest movie filmed in Sacramento, if not the greatest movie ever filmed period.

I'm taking a short trip to Port Angeles, WA today and drove by the Tides Inn, where the motel scenes in An Officer and a Gentlemen were filmed. Not staying there, though, as I hear it's kinda dive-y. :)

Pretty much every movie filmed on location in the Columbus, GA/Fort Benning area. Lots of war/military movies.
