One of the old Radiohead videos was filmed at Dick's Restaraunt in San Leandro... Does this qualify?

my city is always used in movies and dressed up (or down) to look like NYC.

 

ever seen that flick 16 Blocks with Bruce Willis and Mos Def?

I though it was new york untill they walked down a laneway

pst a REN throw. Then there was no question what city is really was.

The funniest thing about havin a movie shot in your city is knowing how fucked up the geography of the plot is...Like how a car will teleport from the north side to a bridge on the southside a mile away in 2 seconds, unbeknownst to the unsuspecting out of town viewer.

In the movie "The Heist" with Delroy Lindo and Danny Devito they dress up a little montreal street (the street that connects with the site for Montreal's first ever Meeting Of Styles ) as downtown New York and me and my boy got black outlines on this metal grate, theres a really still shot just before someone runs into the street to cause a diversion

exactly. studio execs and decision makers stay in LA.

 

my work is mostly TV based, so it doesn't effect me too much.
