Friday Question of the Day – Favorite Hollywood Movies/Series with D.C. Scenes?

Photo by Miki Jourdan

“Dear PoPville,

What are your favorite DC scenes from popular movies? Here are some of those that immediately come to mind:

A Few Good Men (e.g., the Motel 6 by Union Market/Florida Ave. Markets – where they had Lt. Col. Markinson under witness protection, scenes in Adams Morgan by old Idle Times, apartments in Georgetown and Dupont)

The Exorcist (obvious)

D.C. Cab (Florida Ave. Grill? and cool scenes of a bustling Florida Ave. Market, and Natl. Mall)

Wedding Crashers (e.g., Owen Wilson’s house in Georgetown + Church of the Pilgrims)

No Way Out (Kevin Costner’s apartment in Georgetown, 30th & P St)

Dave (Dupont Circle scene by Firehook?)

In The Line of Fire (Eastwood’s apartment in Adams Morgan)

St. Elmo’s Fire (Third Edition + The Tombs?)”

I’d add State of Play with Russel Crowe in Mount Pleasant. I also love the opening scenes from The Americans.

Your favorites?
