Documenting the ‘then’ and ‘now’ of movie locations worldwide.

ReelStreets is the study of commercially distributed world cinema and TV films with outside, recognisable, built-up locations and the changes that time, war or development may have occasioned. We are looking for location identifications, information, snippets, anecdotes or references. We will mention anyone who helps and give full credit for all location shots or information received and similarly, for any Google, Bing or third party shot sent in, in support of a previously unidentified location.

To view the now location shot, just click on the screen captures dated Tab.
