“Girl, Interrupted” was filmed all around where I grew up. “Witness” was filmed in my county seat. And “Saving Sarah Cain” was filmed in my county (they weren’t vey specific). “Home” was filmed near me- one of my friends was an extra in the court room scene. Apparantly “Beloved” was also filmed in my county seat, at a farm museum. There was another movie filmed at the same museum, around the same time but I can’t remember which. Since we have the Amish, everything Amish seems to have at least some shots int he area- or they can go like “Plain Truth” and just make up the geography of the area (if you try and follow all their nonsensical directions, it should have taken place outside my hometown, except we don’t have a marshy area, nor do any of the neighboring towns on the rail line).

It’s not my city, but near it – Shawshank Redemption was filmed in Ohio (Mansfield, I believe)

In White Rock B.C. (where I will be moving soon) they film all sorts of stuff, including episodes of Psych and exterior shots for Juno.

F.I.S.T was filmed in my hometown. Seems like everybody around here knows someone who was in that film as an extra, lol.

Jersey Girl was filmed not too far from where I grew up.  A diner that we used to go to was in the movie.

We get quite a few.  Due to the embargo, pretty much every movie set in Cuba is actually filmed in Puerto Rico.  The Pirates of the Caribbean movies have also shot several scenes around the island.  The radio telescope in one of our towns has appeared in Contact (as itself) and in GoldenEye (as the huge satellite weapon).   Most recently, we’ve had The Losers, The Rum Diary, Fast Five, and a couple of Disney Channel movies filmed here.
