Movie Locations

 

For the movie buffs out there, I've been working on a POI list for where feature films have been shot on location. If you've like to download the file, you can get it here:

http://www.poi-factory.com/node/33278

If anybody wants to contribute, please do so by sending me the information. But please give a specific location rather than saying a movie was shot in "town xyz". If you can provide a brief description of what scene from the film was shot at that location, I will put it in that POI's notes.

I hope to be able to update the POI file at least once a month.

I have seen the future and it is now!

American Grafitti

The last scene in the film was shot at Buchanan Field in Concord when he's flying off to college. The coordinates are -122.056889 37.989667 . I am trying to find coords for San Francisco Bay Area locations for "A View to a Kill: and THX1138 For that film, they used a lot of the bay area tunnels. The very last scene of the film where he is climbing out of the tunnels is the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) tunnel before BART was completed. If you watch the scene, THX is climbing at a "weird" angle. That's because he's actually crawling along the place where the rails were to be placed on the Oakland side of the tunnel. More when I get actual locations. Thanks for the POI!!!!!
