Baltimore, Mayland, is a mecca of creative individuals that love to showcase the highlights of the city. Although Baltimore hasn’t necessarily been placed on the map for its theatrical and film productions, the city still maintains its own unique voice and has been showcased through the film industry.

Sleepless in Seattle

Sleepless in Seattle is a fantastic movie that had scenes set in the locale of Fell’s Point in Baltimore. This movie was a romantic comedy starring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks who both find love in the end. In the movie, the character played by Meg Ryan lived in a rowhouse set in the Fell’s Point area. Throughout the film, there were many scenic Baltimore relics shown, such as the George Peabody Library and Washington Monument.

He’s Just Not That Into You

He’s Just Not That Into You is a fun-loving romantic comedy that breaks down women, men, and romantic relationships. The movie stars an ensemble of actors such as Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, and Scarlett Johansson. However, what made this film compelling was its soft references to Baltimore. The screenwriter spent years living in Baltimore and wanted to show viewers a city that isn’t exactly mainstream. Hence why, during various parts of the movie, you would see the Domino Sugar sign and signs of Natty Boh.

Diner

The movie Diner took place in Baltimore and was filmed in 1982. This movie was a story of reflection and embracing adulthood as a man returns home to be in his best friend’s wedding. Both men meet together at a local diner where they reminisce and exchange stories regarding their childhood. This diner still stands in Baltimore, residing at 400 East Saratoga Street. It was also used in many other movies as well.
