Filming Locations!!!

So which filming locations have you been to?

I got inspired by the Trek Locations thread, and thought some of us have probably been to some cool film locales.

I'll start:

This is the church from the pre-credits sequence of the James Bond movie, "Licence to Kill", where Bond and Felix Leiter parachute down to Felix's wedding. It's in Key West.

I have more pictures of this site, and other locations, but I thought I'd start with one to make sure there's interest.

We are going to be visiting Monument Valley - the location of several John Wayne (and other) films - at the end of Feb. I'll try to post a couple.

I drive the Amstutz "expressway" (aka: the highway to nowhere) every day.

Scenes for Blues Brothers, Groundhog Day & the last Batman movie were filmed there. A few TV shows as well I think.

I live in Nottingham so have been to Wollerton Hall, or Stately Wayne Manor as its also known Been to London so many times that I've likely seen an awful lot of film locations, a biggie a few years ago was going to Corfu though as I got to see a lot of the locations from For Your Eyes Only

Aside from being a hardcore Trek fan, I'm also a hardcore James Bond fan (as well as Star Wars). These are my personal Holy Trinity of Film franchises.

Here's a picture of Emilio Largo's Palmyra estate in Nassau from the 4th Bond film, "Thunderball".

Not a literal film location, but this is me in the Forum, doing my best to match Rome with the ruins:




Here I'm in Cornwall's Eden Project, where the tropical greenhouse part of Die Another Day's ice palace sequence was filmed:




And this is me from the 2005 film Just Like Heaven DVD, reading Al Franken's Lies... far, far behind Ruffalo and Witherspoon in San Francisco's Washington Square Park, where I was a paid extra:

I was in the audience of the James Brown concert in France during the movie "Get on Up; it filmed in Thalia Murrah Hall in Jackson, MS. I don't think it showed up on screen, but I thought it was amusing that they replaced the emergency exit signs with the French translation for Exit.

I work in the general area where Soprano's was filmed, so I occasionally cruise past one of the locations. The Tic Tock Diner is right near work.

Been to Monument Valley, I could add in Yosemite.

This.

I recently discovered that I live just a few blocks from Kevin and Winnie's houses from The Wonder Years, too.

I've pictures of the various places I've been around town, I'll try to load them up and share later today.

Also: great thread, EnriqueH!
