San Francisco Movie Map Shows Filming Locations

Ever wonder how many movies filmed scenes on the Golden Gate Bridge? There's now a map that lists each one, and it doesn't stop there — the map sprawls out over the City, sharing the shooting locations of movies made in San Francisco.

We all know the classic spots — Vertigo's scene at Fort Point, the Mrs. Doubtfire house, and Sean Connery breaking into Alcatraz in The Rock — but this map goes beyond the top spots. The MapHook map shares locations like Pier 39 in Homeward Bound II: Lost in San Francisco, Crissy Field in Sweet November, Spring Valley School in When a Man Loves a Woman, and many more that we had forgotten about or had never known (Who knew Patch Adams filmed on Treasure Island?). 

The Richmond Blog SF shares the data is from the San Francisco Film Commission, and also notes some newer movies and a couple classics are missing; we're sure they'll make it on there soon. But in the meantime, zoom in on your neighborhood and you may discover a movie scene was shot across the street from your house (like we just did).

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
