Have any movies been filmed in, or near, your town/city?

"Real Steal" with Hugh Jackman, the upcoming "Transformers" movie, and an upcoming Civil Rights movie were all partly filmed in my city.
I don't know, I think it's pretty cool.

Updates:
-The courthouse scene in the beginning of Real Steel is my city's downtown.
-the civil rights movie is based on the Detroit riots in the 1960s, and John Krasinski and John Boye

  • Nope I don't think so but my town in Kansas was the inspiration for and is the town that Superman's home town of Smallville was based off of.

    And to celebrate that for a couple days every year the entire town everywhere you go is called Smallville so if you called like say Wal-Mart they'd answer go Hello this is Smallville Wal-Mart how may I help you? It's pretty cool.

    so yeah it's pretty awesome living in the man of steel's hometown so that trumps anything that could be shot in or around here movie wise.

    I live in a really pretty part of London and there are tons of old mansions and houses here and lots of greens so its a good location to film.

What Guys Said 14

  • I worked in San Francisco for several years, and in Oakland for several years, and many productions happened right outside my office windows or down the street.

    Scenes from The Matrix Reloaded were filmed in Oakland and Alameda, just a couple of blocks from my office, and I often saw the filming during that 10 days or so. I can recognize a few streets, buildings, and overhead freeways in the movie, as I often walked those streets going to lunch.

    In San Francisco, there were at least a half-dozen commercials shot right in my area (right near Market and Embarcadero). One day we had several production trucks and two big-rig trailers carrying silver Mazda cars - one of every model. I saw the cars being unloaded as I was walking into the office, and could see them driving around later. Only 2 months later, I was seeing the commercial on TV, with those silver Mazdas driving around the SOMA district and some shots on the Bay Bridge.

    Oh, and when I lived on the Central Coast, this commercial was filmed a half-mile from where I lived:

    and the movie Arachnophobia was filmed a few miles away in the town where my girlfriend worked (Cambria - called "Canima" in the movie).

    Someone I knew ended up with one of those styrofoam Easter Island heads after the commercial was shot. He had it in his backyard for a few months before he finally got rid of it.

    • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L8OZpmIWcxg

      The first two minutes of this was filmed in downtown Oakland in the areas of Broadway and Telegraph, and between 1st and 22nd St. Right about the 2-minute mark, they enter the 7th Street tunnel that connects Oakland to Alameda. Everything after that was shot someplace else or CGI.

  • yeah more than a few. i'm from philly area so Rocky, a bunch of those M. Knight Shamalan (sp?) movies (Signs was filmed about 20 minutes from my house), Philadelphia, Fallen, Trading Places, Silver Linings Playbook, The Blob (was filmed about 15minutes from where i grew up), 12 monkeys, Witness
