The actors of the silver screen's golden age have long since gone, together with many of the film and filming locations and film and movie sites used in their productions. Many of us who grew up admiring these works seen at the local "flicks", or "pictures"; have remained enthusiastic and now a growing band of film and movie location buffs realise the entertainment, and also the social, values, inherent in these old films. This site is concerned with world cinema and with scenes which were shot outdoors in recognisable built-up locations, which are now movie sites or film or filming places and how those places have changed in the intervening years. The older film actors may have passed, but their memories and images on celluloid will never fail, and they are even now being transferred to DVD, hard-drives and fibre optics, for the benefit of future generations of movie site enthusiasts, and which are being collected on our movie places site, which, in estate agent speak is concerned with location, location and location.

ReelStreets is the study of these film and the movie sites or places, these streets, and the changes that time, war and development have occasioned during the period of what was perhaps the finest era of the cinema, when the films often reflected real, or imagined, life, as opposed to today when life often, unhappily, reflects the films. And if you know of any movie, film or filming locations, places or sites send ‘em it.

Architectural Film Locations

The correlation between architecture and films has been around for decades and some locations are so instantly recognisable by fans that they are forever associated with the movie that they were featured in. These filming sites and movie places are the reason for ReelStreets the world’s leading film , movie and filming location site.

For example, the most famous scene of the 1978 film adaptation of The Thirty Nine Steps will be remembered by many film buffs for the epic scene where Richard Hannay is left hanging from the clock face of Big Ben in London, the thirty nine steps in this instance being a reference to the number of steps in the clock tower. That this scene was a studio set detracts little from its nostalgic effect, and tens of thousands of tourists will instantly identify this movie location as an iconic filming site.

More recently, The Louvre, Paris was used extensively as a filming location in The Da Vinci Code featuring Tom Hanks, the museum was integral to the storyline. Permission was granted to film inside and outside the building, on filming sites and places, using the glass pyramid and the surrounding Louvre Palace as locations.
