Is there a location that you'd want to visit because of a movie?

I wouldn’t mind staying at the Anwahnee Hotel in Yosemite National Park because of The Shining.

What a fantastic question, shoulda been mine…actually, I think I asked one similar way back.
I wanna go see the big dubya from It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World, that’d be kinda cool.

Forks, Washington

@Mama_Cakes I’d want to go there, too! Is it the same eerie atmosphere in the hallways, too? I’ve climbed the Exorcist steps. I remember counting 75 steps.

Ha! As I was reading the question before clicking on it, I thought, “Shining hotel!”

I’d also love to visit Alcatraz.

Tempest has always made me want to move to the Greek islands, and any movie from the 40s and early 50s set anywhere in the U.K. makes me want to live there.

I live less than a mile away from where they shot Billy Elliot, same place they shot the closing scenes in Get Carter, the original Michael Caine movie.
Doesn’t really answer the question, i’m basically just showing off now :)

@Mama_Cakes The d├ęcor of the hallways and the rooms made the movie all the more scarier. Now I want to go to the Ahwahnee Hotel.

When we went to France my son had to go into a McDonalds so he could get a “Royale with Cheese”. He got this from Pulp Fiction. He was disappointed.

Middle Earth. Well, ok, maybe I’d settle for New Zealand.

Seoul. I’m fascinated with South Korea in general, really.

Some of my all time favorite movies were made in SK such as The Host, Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, Joint Security Area, Memories of Murder, I saw the Devil, and many more. I’ve probably seen over 50 SK movies this year, easy. If I was good with learning languages I’d try to get a job there.

Oddly, no! That kind of surprised me.

Yes, I began wanting to take a cruise down the Nile after seeing Death on the Nile.

Ha Long Bay, because of the movie Indochine.

The Ahwahnee Hotel is not spooky at all but it is quite fabulous !
We didn’t stay there but we checked it out for a couple hours and had a fancy lunch there.

I want to go (back) to coastal California just South of San Francisco every time I see that area in movies.

I would like to see the Alps, which we’ve seen in all sorts of movies from “Sound of Music” to a couple of Bond flicks ( “Her Majesty’s Secret Service”, “The Spy Who Loved Me”).

All the Beach movies of the 1960’s added to my California Dreaming and helped influence my move to the coast.

Although the movie was filmed (partially) at Yosemite, it’s important to note that the plot of the story is based on the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado ( just at the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park).
