    As part of a Canada trip a couple of years ago, we went to Quebec City where parts of ‘Catch me if you can’ were filmed – the square/church in the film appears to be in rural France but in fact is incredibly busy and very central in Quebec.

    Also Pier 17 in New York – The adjustment bureau.

    Two of my wife’s favourite films!

    Honestly, @Cat, it was surreal! But just goes to show how some of these places are a bit of a law unto themselves. Once the story broke he scarpered and the resort tried to pretend he was just there to play golf – even though they don’t have a golf course! I read later that they got fined for employing him without a work permit.

    The concierge/sales rep is a dual role, which confused most of the people reporting on this!

    What???

    That’s mad! A law unto themselves indeed.

    Bruges is an easy one for, well, In Bruges. The Belfry is the obvious landmark, but unfortunately there are no bloodstains on the surrounding paving.

    On my drive across the north west and mid west of U.S.A. to complete my lower 48 states, I visited the farmhouse location of Field of Dreams. Also when in New York i think in 2012 we saw Ben Stiller filming ‘Walter Mitty’ by Radio City. Last year my grandson (10) and myself went on a Eastern Seaboard trip (Boston, NY & DC) when walking from the high line to the Freedom Tower we stumbled upon the Ghostbusters HQ which was the highlight of his holiday.
    Also my house was in the background during a Torchwood episode.

    Yeah. I’ve deliberately hunted down Ghostbusters HQ too

    Kicking myself for not going to Lone / Twin Pines Mall and other BTTF locations in LA

    In New Orleans, deliberately went to the street from the funeral scene in Live and Let Die

    And not a film location, but the Museum of Western Film History was a deliberate detour once so I could see a Graboid!

    Forgot to add we have also visited the Forest Gump bench site in Savannah. The actually bench is in their museum close by.
    We Really enjoyed Savannah as a city to visit.

    Having just watched the film again on Sunday, realised we went to Devils Tower in Wyoming years ago on a USA trip primarily to Yellowstone.
