Places immortalised in film

Welcome to Cheapflights

Here are a few places that have been well and truly immortalised on celluloid, places that are almost synonymous with the silver screen.

The setting of a film is pretty important because otherwise the actors would probably just fall forever through limbo and it wouldn’t be much of a film, just some people aimlessly screaming a bit but nothing really happening. A bit like that movie Titanic.

Here are a few places that have been well and truly immortalised on celluloid, places that are almost synonymous with the silver screen.

Las Vegas, USA – Casino, Honeymoon in Vegas, Leaving Las Vegas, Ocean’s 11/12/13

Las Vegas has a mixed bag on screen. It’s made to seem really fun and bright, but it’s a crime capital with a surplus of lavish heists being pulled off by already rich men.

Plus, Nicolas Cage went from being a deliriously happy newlywed to an alcoholic trying to drink himself to death in the space of just a few years. Oh, viva Las Vegas! At least there are parachuting Elvis impersonators making it all worthwhile.

Casablanca, Morocco – Casablanca

Everybody who visits Casablanca is always shocked to find the place is actually in colour. They’re also constantly demanding that locals tell them where they can hear Sam play it again. It’s nowhere, unsurprisingly.

New York, USA – Ghostbusters, King Kong, The Day After Tomorrow, Cloverfield, Godzilla, The Avengers

Why do big monsters and aliens always want to attack New York? There are perhaps thousands of films where their big appetites seem to hone in on the big apple.

It’s as if movie monsters, apocalyptic disasters and super criminals all think NYC is a big skyscrapered smart-alec just asking for a smack.
