The Color Purple was filmed around Charlotte, as was The Hunger Games.

Let's not forget "The Patriot" with Mel Gibson. Parts were filmed just south of town in Rock Hill and Fort Lawn.

"Shallow Hal" is a good snapshot of uptown as it looked in 2000-2001. The DVD commentary is entertaining, as the Farrelly Brothers agree that Johnny Harris is the "Boss Hogg" of Charlotte. And they loved Price's Chicken.

"Eddie" was filmed in Charlotte, and the Tyvola Charlotte Coliseum played itself and Madison Square Garden.

"Juwanna Mann" eerily predicted the future 15 years hence, as the main character left the basketball arena walked to the Bank of America parking deck on College Street.

"Nell" also has a few good snapshots of uptown as it was in 1993-1994. The view from outside the Days Inn on Tryon Street is shocking compared to what it is today. The BofA headquarters building played the lobby and front entrance of a hospital.
