Baltimore: Several Barry Levinson films. Of those I've seen Avalon. Maybe another I've forgotten.

DC: Pretty much all political films.

Los Angeles: Boys n the Hood, LA Confidential, and LA Story

Punxsutawney: Groundhog Day (Possibly the smallest town to have one, or at least nearly so. If you need a city than Pittsburgh as the film starts there)

San Francisco - So I Married An Axe Murderer and Vertigo.

Vertigo...definitely San Francisco. Other Hitchcock...North By Northwest, NY and Chicago and Rapid City, SD! Rear Window, NY totally. Psycho, Phoenix and unnamed Southern California towns. The Birds, Bodega Bay, CA. Strangers on a train, Wash. DC.

Some of my hometown favorites: Seattle for Cinderalla Liberty, McQ, Fabulous Baker Boys, Black Widow, Disclosure, and countless tv movies.
