  • Yes, we've had 2 Agatha Christies, a period drama, one about a murdering doctor that lived in our town, a bit of a musical (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang!!), loads of comedy sketches using the promenade, adverts, and it's generally over-run with stars and cameras all the time - but you rarely see anyone! It's so picturesque on the seafront, with the Downs on one side of the prom and the sparkling sea on the other, and the hotels look so regal and Edwardian... no wonder really!
  • They have filmed 2 movies, a music video and chase scenes for both Walker Texas Ranger and Americans Most Wanted, in and around our town. We look like remote anywhere, so they use as a cheap place to get the nothing in the background shots.
  • When I lived in rural Virginia they filmed the Lassie movie near our town. :)

Also, I live within easy driving distance of A Warner Brother's studio(The one where they filmed all the soundstages for the matrix) so I get to live in the same city as a lot of movies. Also, I accidentally became an uncredited extra on "The Starter wife" when walking home from work in Brisbane.

  • Yes. I was living in Many, LA where parts of Man In The Moon was filmed. (Sam Waterston, Tess Harper and a very young Reese Whitherspoon..though they weren't there..:-( ) We watched for hours..it was really neat. It was set in the 50s and on Main Street there was nothing but old cars, awesome! The movie is pretty good, too. ;-)
  • Edward Scissorhands, and The Punisher (I think it was the Punisher...)
  • Yes, both back in CA where I lived most of my life and now here in upstate New York. In CA we lived in San Luis Obispo county and it was always showing up on TV, especially in car commercials as the backcountry roads were perfect for driving around curves with hills. My Cousin Vinny and My Blue Heaven were 2 big pictures filmed closest to home. Here in New York, it's harder to find them.And not many people will ever remember hearing.
  • No, but one has had its world premiere here. Since this is Lucille Ball's hometown, she came back to premiere "The Long, Long Trailer" in 1954.
  • Mischief
  • Yes, a few. Off the top of my head there was "Dukes of Hazzard", "Everyone's All American", there are a lot more I'll add as I remember.
  • They are here in the Tampa Bay area quite frequently filming something for some movie and often it includes shots of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. I know there was another time when they were on Franklin Street (Pedestrian Street). Many many more I cannot recall.
  • Scenes for Dr Who are filmed here.
  • no. 20 miles down the road in anderson, texas. a movie with goldie hawn called hope, i think. does that count?
  • "The Best of Times" was filmed in the city I work in. Taft, CA
  • Yeah. I live in New York and film crews are always here blocking off streets, disrupting pedestrian flow, and generally making pompous nuisances of themselves. I often disobey their "orders" to go one way or another, as I do not wish to be an "extra" in some film, and remind them that this is my town and they they ought to go back to Hollywood. Unfortunately, the mayor and the city administration believes that this brings revenue or publicity to the city. I can assure them that the rest of the world is well aware of the existence of New York City, and I do not know a single person who has gotten any "revenue" from movies being filmed here. New York is a business town, a financial center where people work hard. I don't know anyone who has been benefited by this, though I know of many instances when people have been late to work, rudely treated, or even blocked from their own homes because the city feels blessed by the presence of big-studio Hollywood on our streets.
  • We had our FIRST real movie filmed here, in Covington, Georgia the past 3 months! It's Rob Zombie's 'Halloween 2' It's going to be a shit movie, but i'm going to see it because it was filmed here and try to enjoy it ;)

  • Edward Scissorhands was filmed right down the road from me. There are a lot of houses that are still painted all those funny colours.
  • Constantly. A film scene was shot in front of the building where I work last week.
  • The place i used to call "my city" yes lots of them. However I don't have a city anymore. I just have a place where I live right now. I think I'd like to have a costal town in Florida as my city.
  • I think so, but if anything it was crappy and low budget. Lol
  • Parts of "The Parole Officer" (starring Steve Coogan) were filmed in my home city of Manchester.
