AFI's Top 100 movie location trivia


Recommended Posts

I am going to test this out here.   See how you do.   The AFI has put out its list of the Top 100 movies of all time.  I am putting here the name of a location or setting associated with one of those 100 movies.   You simply need to name the movie that is associated therewith. Note: mostly...but not all are in the USA

1. Mission of San Juan Batista

2. Brainerd

3. Philadelphia Museum of Art

4. Pitcairn Island

5. St. Theodosius Cathedral

6. The Streets of Modesto (though actually filmed in Petaluma)

7. Devil's Tower

8. The Empire State Building

9. Gibsland, Louisiana

10. Aqaba

11. LA's Chinatown

12. Mt. Rushmore

13. St. Charles Ave. transport

14. Griffith Park  (LA)

15. Marfa, Texas

16. The Mansfield State Reformatory

17. Savannah park benches

18. Monument Valley

Those are really, really tough. 

I can't even take a wild guess on the rest. 

actually...I do not think they are that tough...if you are a regular movie watcher.  And remember...these all come from what are considered the Top 100 of all time.....not from obscure movies.
