How the fuck do you put The Simpsons movie on there? That was not FILMED, that was DRAWN.

West Wing was a TV show, not a movie.

And you forgot Air Force One, X-Men 2 and Mars Attacks. And Fallout 3 / Modern Warfare 2. So dont rely on your White House Museum link.

Holy crap does the train go up into the building? Why the hell is it so tall? (Same with the one in NY, wtf).

The Day After (1983)

Starring: Gudow (one of the first West German border villages at the Berlin Autobahn to be overrun by Soviet and NVA forces) Fortunately, my father (who had served there as a border patrol) and I don't live there anymore.

The movie that changed my childhood...

Nevertheless, I have never been nuked by now.

I don't know about the city itself, but I do know that Revolutionary Road was filmed around here...

Zamamee;5286800 Also, there was a battle scene in Spider-Man 3 set in downtown New York, but it was actually filmed in downtown Cleveland. I remember all the main streets downtown were closed, so traffic was a nightmare[/QUOTE] Wow. Spiderman 3 sucks harder than I thought. No offense to Cleveland, but Spiderman is a New York superhero. Fact.

[QUOTE=Crazy Wolf;5287198]Nah, Gotham's not Chicago. Batman used to be in New York, until the writer wanted to give Batman a more global scope by making a fake city.

The Christopher Nolan Batman movies were filmed mainly in Chicago. Considering they are also the only good Batman movies, Chicago is basically Gotham.

That was an interesting movie. See Threads if you have a chance.

Luckily, all of the silos at Whiteman AFB have been decommissioned, so you won't be nuked in an attack now. ;)

The area where I live has been featured in several commercials, movies and tv shows/series.

One example of each would be a commercial for I think it was an insurance company(the name escapes me and youtube isn't helping) it was shown throughout 2008 and 2009 too if I recall. My city was mentioned by name two.

A recent example for a movie would be a short scene in Zoom where the local Wendy's was used.

The two most recent times my city was shown on tv was when Oprah and her friend were doing they're Route 66 road trip about two years ago and also in Prison Break.
