Does anyone out there think they're pretty good at identifying movie locations. Anyone? Anyone?
Ever seen a movie location and thought, “Wait, I know this place?”
Christopher Moloney knows a bit about location, location, location. As a writer, his works have appeared in several publications, including on CNN.com. But this past summer, the movie buff started posting photos of movie locations with iconic movie scenes in the background.
He had some time on his hands.
“I noticed I had roughly the same commute as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man (from "Ghostbusters") and my blog FILMography was born,” he told HLN.
While many a movie has been filmed in the Big Apple, don’t think Moloney stayed in city limits for the project.
“As I live in Manhattan, most of the shots were taken here, but I've also snapped shots in Toronto (my hometown), Chicago, Ho Chi Minh City and Bangkok,” he said.

Now for the answers:
Black Swan: New York subway (extra points if you know the station) … Lincoln Center.
The Seven Year Itch: Iconic subway grate at 52nd Street and Lexington Avenue, in front of what was formerly the Trans-Lux Theatre in New York.
Maid in Manhattan: Metropolitan Museum of Art aka the Met, 1000 5th Avenue and 82nd Street, Manhattan.
Tomb Raider: Extensive filming was done in Cambodia, including at Ta Prohm Temple at Angkor Wat.
The Dark Knight Rises: The statue of George Washington at Federal Hall in Manhattan, New York City.
Cruel Intentions: New York’s Central Park.
The Avengers: Grand Central Station.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s: in front of the Fifth Avenue storefront where Holly Golightly first enjoyed "Breakfast at Tiffany's."
The Hangover II: Chinatown in Bangkok.
Ghostbusters: Columbus Circle in Manhattan.
Of course you'd want to know what's Moloney's fave film: "'Ferris Bueller's Day Off'. But, looking back, I've seen "3000 Miles to Graceland" and "You've Got Mail" way more than any reasonable human being should have. I blame TBS."
