Over the years, filming in San Francisco has given us many opportunities to see parts of San Francisco on the big screen. Hit movies like Mrs. Doubtfire and The Wedding Planner, for example, have given us give a glimpse at San Francisco's many charming neighborhoods, including City Hall, and City College. And, of course, there's the famous Golden Gate Bridge...a modern spectacle that's been in too many movies to count! With so many famous sets, and so many unique venues, it's no wonder that San Francisco is film-production powerhouse, with plenty of options for sets, production companies, and attractions.
While many think of southern California for film producers, you can certainly find them in San Francisco, too. Here are a few well worth a mention.
Filming in San Francisco is not without it's own unique pros and cons. Here are a few to consider.
San Francisco is filled with tons of historical film locations, backdrop landmarks, and more. Perfect spots for evening get-togethers, cast outings, or general movie-buff excursions, after you've finished filming on set.
Let’s start with an iconic landmark that’s known around the world: The Golden Gate Bridge, the bright-orange behemoth. The Golden Gate Bridge has been around for more than 80 years and has been seen in countless movies including Star Trek, Dirty Harry, Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo, John Huston’s crime classic The Maltese Falcon, and countless others.
San Francisco’s elegant City Hall has been a backdrop in several hit movies. You can spot it in The Wedding Planner with Jennifer Lopez and Matthew McConaughey, and the classic Dirty Harry with Clint Eastwood.
San Francisco Chinatown, the largest outside of Asia and the oldest in North America is filled with attractions, culture, and history. It too, has been in its fair share of blockbuster film including Dirty Harry in The Dead Pool, The Age of Adaline, and Big Trouble in Little China.
Other well-known film spots include the notorious Alcatraz penitentiary, the green-filled Golden Gate Park, and the admirable Palace of Fine Arts.
