How to find the exact locations of your favourite movies? Here is a list of sources to find it out.
Restaurants for a special occasion, diners serving sandwiches, cafés for a hearty breakfast and bars whose counter tops are lined with photogenic cocktails. City squares, hotels, nightclubs, gardens and heavenly hideaways.
Discovering the exact locations of your favourite scenes isn’t always easy, which is why there are several online sites to help you out. The initial searches can be done with a film title, and a great resource is the Internet Movie Database, which allows you to even search according to filming locations. But the site Movie Locations, is a veritable online tourist guide for movie locations, and you can conduct your search according to geography, actor, director, or film title. There’s also behind-the-scenes information, trivia, photos, and useful links.
Users can also identify film locations near their own homes on Filmaps, where you can register and put little flags on a map indicating your favourite film locations. It currently contains the precise addresses for almost two thousand films.
