^Excellent.

I have heard the Star Wars theme played by a full orchestra and it is awesome.

Ever wondered whether you live near a filming location? Well now you can find out (mostly), as here is a map showing the locations used for IMDb's top 2000 films. I found out the following:-

The Orphanage was filmed partly in Llanes in Spain, where I stayed with a couple of friends a few years ago.

I was born (and went to Secondary school) very close to where parts of Full Metal Jacket, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and Time Bandits were filmed.

I was quite close to where parts of The Battle of Britain and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade were filmed, and have visited that airfield countless times. Not on the map is the fact that The Crystal Maze was filmed there too.

I've been to the hospital featured at the end of A Clockwork Orange far too many times to count.

The Volcano nightclub from Trainspotting is in the wrong place. As is the pub that Begbie threw a pint in. And apparently Gregory's Girl was never made in Scotland. Or World War Z, Skyfall, Local Hero. But mostly Gregory's Girl...

^ So they get some stuff wrong? I found that if you zoom in really close, it makes the location far more accurate. If not, that's pretty poor of them.

The Volcano was here: 55.869982, -4.300293‎

La Taniere, the pub that Begbie threw his pint in, was here: 55.855968, -4.253662

But no Gregory's Girl, no Heavenly Pursuits, no Local Hero, no That Sinking Feeling?

And where is Brigadoon??!?

The movie "Empire Falls" was filmed right up the road in Skowhegan, but it's not on the map.

On the other hand, "The Witches of Eastwick" was at least partly filmed at Abbott Hall, Marblehead, MA, the same building I was married in (not to the current Mrs. T, to the former holder of that title).
