films filmed in dc

to combine my love for movies and dc. thought i’d share some my favorite films filmed here. makes for a good theme for movie night esp if you have some downtime during the holidays.

the post has quick list through 2001 of over 185 films w/ major dc scenes.

a deeper breakdown of dc movies is dc goes to movies where you can find out if your favorite restaurant or street corner’s been in a movie…search by area (e.g., georgetown) then by venue (e.g., the tombs) and list what movies it appeared in (e.g., the exorcist, st. elmo’s fire).

in skimming the list, my favs include (in chronological order):
Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde
Bowling for Columbine
Minority Report
Armageddon
Contact
The People vs. Larry Flynt
Forrest Gump
True Lies
Quiz Show
The Firm
War of the Roses
The Silence of the Lambs
The Hunt for Red October
Broadcast News
Peggy Sue Got Married
The Godfather Part II
St. Elmo’s Fire
The Exorcist
Dr. Strangelove

    Ooh, Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins and Spies Like Us! Doctor, doctor, doctor…. and doctor. They’re both not very good, but I’ve been known to have strange tastes in movies.
