The movie Nothing Hill is filmed in a location with the name of the street as Nothing Hill?
Well this blue door where Hugh Grant lived is now popular among tourists.
The firestation that appeared in the 1984 Ghostbusters was actually very near to Greenwich Village. This is easily accessible by subway in Manhattan. So make an effort to visit this firehouse when you got the chance.

Located in Malta, this is a group of wooden village built specifically for the musical Popeye starring Robin Williams.
The construction of the film set started in June 1979. The set was completed in seven months, and filming commenced on January, 1980.
From the book Bright Lights Big City:
The glittering, curvilinear surfaces inside Odeon are reassuring. The place makes you feel reasonable at any hour, often against bad odds, with its good light and clean luncheonette-via-Cartier deco decor.
So The Odeon was featured in the cover of Jay McInerney’s book. I read the movie tie-in version that featured Michael J. Fox in the cover instead.
Ever since I read Jay McInerney's "Bright Lights, Big City" in 1984 I've wanted to eat at Odeon…. pic.twitter.com/BHUjhctXjC
Just realised that You’ve Got Mail starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan was based on a film classic Little Shop Around The Corner. The bookshop featured in the movie You’ve Got Mail is now a dry cleaner shop!
You may know it as the Little Shop Around the Corner in You've Got Mail, but now it's a La Mode Organic Dry Cleaner! pic.twitter.com/WQGs4vvc5l— TCM (@tcm) August 21, 2014
Stephen King had visited this hotel in 1973 and it was this hotel that had inspired his book The Shining. The book was released in the year 1977 and the movie starring Jack Nicholson was released in the year 1980.
Also saw the Stanley Hotel yesterday. The hotel that inspired Stephen King to write "The Shining"
This wasn't the one used in the film. pic.twitter.com/hLIycxDZxC

The haunted Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado was the inspiration for Stephen King's novel The Shining. I'm loving every minute here! pic.twitter.com/HBGCf2LUbC
After having chosen Stephen King’s novel The Shining as a basis for his next project, Kubrick had sets constructed on soundstages at EMI Elstree Studios in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, Britain — to enable chronological filming and changes during production, he used several stages at EMI Elstree Studios in order to make all sets available during the complete duration of production.
The set for the Overlook Hotel was then the largest ever built at Elstree, including a life-size re-creation of the exterior of the hotel. Some of the interior designs of the Overlook Hotel set were based on those of the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite National Park.
Haystack Rock can be seen in the opening scene of The Goonies, when the Fratellis are fleeing from the police and then enter a race on the beach. It can be seen in the background.
Later in the film you can see the Haystack Rock again when Mikey is pointing out some rocks in the distance.

Jeniffer Beals went to apply for an audition in this ballet institution set in Carnegie Museum of the Art. I believe she did not queue up to wait for her turn to get the application as shown in the music video below.
