Shawshank Redemption, hands down is my all time favorite movie. A Christmas Story is my favorite christmas movie, I actually watched all 24 hours of it on TBS one Christmas. When I first saw it as a kid, I already knew it was filmed in Cleveland. In Too Deep with Omar Epps and LL Cool J is another favorite of mine, most of it was shot in the Over-The-Rhine section of Cincinnati.

I do feel Ohio needs to take more advantage of Hollywood filmmaking. Since the state of Michigan started offering more incentives to filmmakers, there has been an increase in movies filmed in Michigan, mainly Detroit and Flint. There is a website called Filming in Detroit.com that has alot of information about Detroit's movie scene. I feel areas like Cleveland and Columbus can adopt a similar plan and bring more money and jobs into Ohio. I live in Toledo, and this city really could benefit from Hollywood filmmaking being its close proximity to Detroit. Movie makers scout shooting locations 60 miles away from where their original location. Toledo has not taken advantage of this yet and to my knowledge I know of no feature films ever filmed in this city.

There was one in the 1940s. Can't for the life of me remember the name of it.

Carty was on 'The Daily Show' about 10 years ago promoting film making in Toledo.

He wanted action films shot there. His idea was they could get old abandoned factories and warehouses blown up for free and then redevelop. LOLs.

It actually kind of made sense.

I haven't seen it yet nor even know if it's a good movie, but The Soloist was shot in Cleveland's Hough neighborhood last year. It comes to theaters this weekend:

Ive already heard a lot about that movie, seen a lot of previews for it too.

Thats interesting. I wonder what side of Hough they got. The new suburban looking houses and apartments, the projects, or the rough decayed areas that are left. Well have to wait and see I guess.

Cleveland is a popular spot for movies lately.

For me, I would have to say my favorite Christmas movie, a Christmas Story shot in Cleveland.

Two other decent movies that were filmed in Cincinnati but haven't been mentioned in this thread are Little Man Tate and The Mighty. Also, parts of Silence of the Lambs were shot in Belvedere, OH.

I would guess the areas with older housing stock, since they are trying to portray the time period when he grew up there, which would probably be in the 1960s or 1970s, when it was a very dense neighborhood.

Weren't parts of Antwone Fisher also shot in the Hough neighborhood?

Possibly. I have to watch it again.

On IMDB it says Cleveland, OH and Glenville (Cleveland neighborhood).
